Handicaps not always seen

My daughter went to the South Parkersburg Walmart July 3 around 3 p.m. She left the store and her friend was loading groceries into her car as a woman pulled up behind her car and started yelling and cursing at her because she was in a handicapped space.

The woman then told her she didn’t “look” handicapped.

She is disabled and does have a handicap placard. This was very upsetting to her and also to me.

Most people are intelligent enough to know that handicaps/disabilities cannot always be seen. Also, young people CAN be disabled.

To the woman that yelled and cursed at my daughter, please think about what you said. Remember that disabilities cannot always be seen, and think before you speak. You were only showing your ignorance.
