They Made A Sexist Remark Against Her, But She Had An Epic Comeback For Them!
A note that was supposed to show support for our troops flatlined and ended up just being a sexist and incorrect rant.
Trying to find an open parking spot on a hot day is just a no-no. You might understand the temptation to grab a designated parking space for just a few minutes.
When Rebecca Landis Hayes decided to park in the veterans-only parking spot at Coddle Creek Harris Teeter in Concord, North Carolina, she never thought she would spark this type of outrage. It was within her every right to park there because she served in the United States Navy for eight years.
As Hayes returned to her vehicle she noticed something on her windshield, it was a note that tried to shame her for parking in the designated space.
“This parking is for Veterans, lady. Learn to read and have some respect,” the note read.
Never in her life had she felt so unappreciated! So she did what any normal person would do in modern times, and take it to Facebook!
To the person who left this note on my windshield today at the Coddle Creek Harris Teeter in Concord, NC:
I know I parked in one of the Veteran Parking spaces today, it was hot. I had been in and out of my car several times already this afternoon, and I was only going to be a minute. Besides, the parking lot was full, so I just did it. It was the first time, and I won’t do it again. I’m sorry…
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. I’m sorry that I have to explain myself to people like you. Mostly, I’m sorry that we didn’t get a chance to have this conversation face to face, and that you didn’t have the integrity and intestinal fortitude to identify yourself, qualities the military emphasizes.
Which leads to one question, I served, did you?
And of course, an outpouring of support soon followed.
