Mum who took her disabled son to Disney World left devastated by brutal note left on her car savaging her parking

A MOTHER has been left devastated after she took her disabled son to Disney World, only to find an incredibly upsetting note left on her car.

Tricia Proefrock, from Florida, decided to visit the amusement park with her 13-year-old son Mason, who has Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome and requires a wheelchair.

Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome is a type of epilepsy that can see patients suffer from a variety of different seizures. It can cause stiffening of the body, temporary loss of muscle tone and consciousness and affect an individual’s ability to see correctly.

To accommodate his disability, Tricia drives a car with a wheelchair ramp, which means she sometimes has to park across two spaces so she can lower the ramp so her son can get out.

Parking attendants often recommend doing this to allow ease of access for disabled people but when Tricia returned to her car at the end of the day, she discovered a rude message criticising her parking.


The note had been designed to represent a parking fine and it read: "This is not a ticket, but if it were within my power, you would receive two.

"Because of your bull-headed, inconsiderate, feeble attempt at parking, you have taken enough room for a 20 mule team, two elephants, one goat, and a safari of pygmies from the African interior.

"The reason for giving you this is so that in the future you may think of someone else other than yourself. Besides, I don't like domineering, egotistical or simple-minded drivers and you probably fit into one of these categories.

"I sign off wishing you an early transmission failure (on the expressway at about 4.30pm). Also, may the flies of a thousand camels infest your armpits."

Tricia was left heartbroken by the letter, but she shared it in the hopes that it might make others think twice before leaving a similar one themselves.

She told FOX 35 News: "When the side of the lot with ramp accesses are full, the only remaining spots have no ramp access.

"Every single time out of dozens of trips, the cast members instruct me to take two spots, by parking directly on the white line. This gives me room to wheel my son out of the vehicle

"So, if you see a car taking two spots, maybe instead of wishing us a broken transmission, you can try to think about why a wheelchair accessible van in a medical parking section might need two spots."

Elsewhere in parenting, I was adamant my 14-year-old son wasn’t getting the Covid jab – until he changed my mind.
