Driver says people shouldn’t be so quick to judge

To the editor:

On Sunday, March 3, at 7:45 a.m., I arrived at the Summit Mall parking lot, which was covered in snow, and the delineated parking space lines were not visible. I parked my vehicle. I arrived early that day for a staff meeting inside the mall, which included working a shift until 2:30 p.m., parking in the designated area behind the Goodyear shop.

So as the snow melted during the day, the parking space lines became visible, and where I was parked was not within the now visible parking space lines. As I entered my vehicle at 2:30 p.m., I noticed a piece of paper underneath one of my windshield wiper blades. It read: “YOU ARE THE WORST PARKER EVER! PRACTICE HARDER. A FACE PALMING CITIZEN.”

So this person takes the time to write a nasty note, [and] is too cowardly to leave their real name.

Wow! So quick to judge without the appropriate information. Really, as if I would park in the middle of a parking lot aisle if I could have seen the parking space markers. Can we all just take a deep breath before we so quickly judge one another? Really?
