Woman left with brutal note over parking after rushing into hospital

In some situations, exactly how one parks a car can be the least of your concerns as the main thing is to just get the car parked.
One such situation would definitely be when taking your child to the hospital after they injured themselves playing sport.
However, one mum was left gobsmacked after being left a rude note by someone after she and her partner rushed their son to hospital.
Upon arrival at the hospital in Queensland, her husband had parked in the first available spot, which they didn't realise at the time was only for reverse parking. This had unintentionally cut off someone else who had been trying to park.
Unfortunately, that person took issue with this, and took the time write out a rude note they then left on the family's car, where they lambasted them for not parking properly in the spot.
The note read: "Hey rude b***h. You will notice the sign says 'reverse parking'.
"I was about to reverse park and you snuck right in - then had the nerve to obfuscate. Dirty window? You don't even make sense!! Note you didn't reverse park!"
The parents had been taking their son to the hospital with a suspected hairline fracture, which he had received while playing sport.
She left a scathing response to the rude note in a post online, which has since been deleted. She said that reverse parking had not been a 'priority' at the time.
The mum also pointed out that the person who left the note had no way of knowing the circumstances of the people they were addressing, and may well have been directing their frustration towards someone who was saying goodbye to a loved one.
In the response, she said: "To the lovely person who left this note when we were rushing our son to the emergency department, pull your damn head in.
"The way my husband parked was the last thing on his mind when seeking emergency medical attention for our child."
She continued: "Have some bloody empathy. Why not say it to our face?
"You're clearly just a cold-hearted coward. Maybe next time consider the circumstances, you very well may have left this note on the car of someone whose family member is passing away."
It is understood that her son made a full recovery from his injuries following the family's visit to the hospital.
