Female veteran parks in veteran parking spot, gets nasty note


CONCORD, NC (WCNC) – We’ve all seen designated parking spots in lots across the country- the obvious ones are for the handicapped, or perhaps for loading zones or motorcycle parking. But some businesses take it a bit further with designated parking for other members of the community, such as expectant mothers and veterans.

A North Carolina woman parked in one of those spots Monday at the Coddle Creek Harris Teeter in Concord.

That woman, Rebecca Landis Hayes, took to Facebook to respond to the anonymous note writer:When she returned from shopping, she found a note on her vehicle that read, “This parking is for veterans, lady. Learn to read & have some respect.”


In the Facebook response Hayes writes, “I’m sorry that you can’t see my eight years of service in the United Sates Navy. I’m sorry that your narrow misogynistic world view can’t conceive of the fact that there are female Veterans.”What others are clicking on:
