A Tulsa mother said a stranger left a note on her car shaming her for using a handicapped parking spot Wednesday afternoon.
It happened at Tulsa Hills and the note read:
“We watched you pull into handicap spot and get out carrying a toddler. You have no right to park in a handicap! It is for handicap people! Shame on you!”
Colleen Stice said the stranger was too quick to judge because her 4-year-old son uses a wheelchair. They didn’t have it with them at the time because it was being cleaned.

She wrote this response in a Facebook post:
“Imagine how bad days can get for special needs parents. The possibilities are endless. You don’t know me, and you don’t know the next person you see parking in a handicapped spot. Don’t shame them. They probably don’t deserve it. Just be kind.”
