Student Nurse Responds To Shopkeeper Who Left Angry Note On Her Car

Student Nurse Responds To Shopkeeper Who Left Angry Note On Her Car

A student nurse has hit out at a shopkeeper who left a note on her car telling her to be more considerate of local businesses.

Kiera Mercy, from Fleetwood, Lancashire, returned from her shift to find a piece of card had been left on the windscreen of her car which she had legally parked in a spot outside a shop.

The note written in felt tip told her to have 'some consideration' as her parking was affecting struggling businesses.

It read: "This area is NOT for student parking! Have some consideration for the shops that already struggle without parking issues. Please think before leaving your car for hours about the businesses.

"Have a nice day."

Angered by the note, Kiera took a photo of the message and shared it on her Twitter page, hitting out at the shopkeeper and claiming she had done nothing wrong.

It read: "Being a student nurse, working hours on end unpaid for the NHS without a break and having notes left on your car for being inconsiderate and parking in a LEGAL space. have some consideration for those who save yours and your loved ones lives!!!"

Speaking to LADbible, the student says it's difficult to park in the area and it's sad to see that some people don't appreciate the work those in the NHS do.

But fortunately, since posting her tweet, Kiera says she's received a lot of support from people who thanked her for the work she and others in the profession do to keep people safe.

She said: "I just parked in a spot which was outside a row of shops, no restrictions or signs to say I can't park there, and I returned to my car with the note left for me.

"I'm happy people have been able to see my point of view though, I've had some lovely support. A medical page delivered a 'care package' to my door with some goodies in. But I absolutely love my studies so I'm just going to carry on doing what I'm doing."

Commenting on her tweet, one supporter said: "Wouldn't mind but there's no parking round the hospital and you have to walk on your own, late at night and early in the morning!! You pay your road tax so you can park where you want."

While another added: "I really wish there was a fund to provide parking for NHS staff... l would willingly pay into it!! We need to look after these amazing people who look after us so well & small things like this would make a massive difference"

Not everyone was as understanding, however, with one person saying they could understand the shopkeeper's argument.

They said: "How are they supposed to know you where a nurse? Do you take the ambulance home after work or what?"
