Sometimes disability cannot be seen with bare eyes but that doesn’t mean it can’t exist. And just because someone is not smart enough to see them, doesn’t give them the right to puke hatred on them. That’s what a motorist did to Paige Tanner, 23, and her mother while they were shopping.
Paige suffers from chromosome disorder Tetrasomy 18p and she has a blue badge. It’s because of the disability, she needs care constantly.
Her story will break your heart and you’d want to run after the culprit to smack his head. Trust me, I want to do it too.
The motorist called out Paige and her mother ‘selfish’ for parking in a blue badge area, leaving a vile note saying that they were making illegal use reserved for blue badges.
‘You will be reported for illegal use of a blue badge space.
‘I witnessed you and your young able bodied daughter park the car at the precinct with no sign of disability.’ The note read.
Her father criticized the person who left the message and called him ignorant.
Mr. Tanner says his family is quite upset because of the note.
‘This selfish action deprives a disabled person of somewhere to park.’
