This did not happen to me, but was posted on our community Facebook page in hopes of reaching (and shaming) the offender.
The woman who posted is a realtor, and as is common in our area, her car features a large magnet advertising her real estate business with a professional head shot of the agent. During a recent trip to the grocery store, her husband had used her car and parked in a space reserved for combat veterans.
When he returned, the man found the following note posted on the car:
“I sure hope you’re really a veteran and not just an agent wanting a spot closer to the door. #sad” (Yes, the note included a hashtag.)
As it happens, the realtor’s husband is a veteran who lost both legs in combat. Had the note-writer looked into the car, the adaptive equipment would have been easily seen. Personally, I believe there was more than a smidge of sexism involved, since it seemed the writer of the note simply couldn’t fathom a car advertising a businesswoman being driven by a veteran. 1102-17
