Open Letter of The Day: Mom With Multiple Multiple Sclerosis Responds to Nasty Note Left on Her Car

News flash: Not everyone who is disabled uses a wheelchair.

Some people don't seem to get this, and they write unnecessary notes to leave on disabled people's vehicles.

Australian mom Justine Van Den Borne, who has Multiple Sclerosis, received a note on her care from an anonymous bully who apparently thought she shouldn't be using a handicapped parking space.

Since the note was anonymous, she took to Facebook and penned an open letter so people understand how such cowardly acts make disabled people feel.

To person that left this on my car last week at Mitcham Shopping Centre- I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when I was 35. Not just MS but the worst one that never goes away and is slowly crippling my life. My kids have had to deal with things that kids shouldn't ever have to deal with and all of our futures are forever changed. On the day you saw me I was having a good day, I was walking with my daughter unaided having a nice day. Thank you for ruining that. You made me feel like people were looking at me, the exact way I feel when I can't walk properly. I am sick of people like yourself abusing me on my good days for using a facility I am entitled to. A disability doesn't always mean a person has to be wheelchair bound but lucky for you I one day will be. Right now my focus is to walk into my best friends wedding next September and not have to be pushed. I will be 42. Before you ruin another persons day remember you don't know everything and just because you can't see it it doesn't mean a person isn't struggling to put one foot in front of the other.

Think before you post notes on cars, people. It's that simple.

WTF of The Day: This Man Was Fired For 'Liking' a Facebook Picture

A Facebook 'like' can now get you fired.

Oh, what an exciting world we live in!

Troy Garrod, a 27-year-old from England, started working at Bertrams Books back in 2011.

He saw his coworker upload a photo in October on Facebook of a sweater with five wolves on it. Doing what most people do while scrolling through his Newsfeed, Garrod hit the 'like' button (along with 70 other people.)

But a few days later he received a text from his boss saying he had been fired for "bullying."

"I didn't know what the photo meant but everyone else who worked there was liking it so I just joined in," he told Metro.

Apparently the caption on the photo was making fun of the sweater, which another coworker owned. It read:

'OMG I'm f**king crying… I'm sure there's a wolf fleece appreciation page pahahaha.'

The original uploader is also believed to have been suspended.

Geez, you think someone wearing a sweet wolf sweater like that would have a better sense of humor.

Genius and/or mad man Paul Stenson, owner of The White Moose Cafe in Dublin, just started a fight with Vegans on Facebook. And he's winning.

Stenson posted an obvious joke about vegans with their picky dietary requirements on his restaurant's Facebook page.

Vegans pushed back. But he pushed back HARD.

Here's how it all went down. Prepare for butthurt in 3..2..1...

There is still hope for all of us.

Notable Facebook enemies Asif and Mudasir are once again friends, according to a post that comes exactly one month after their epic breakup.

Here's the original post that announced the split. For some reason (probably the flashy graphics and hilarious nature of grown men having a Facebook squabble) the post went viral.

Mudasir confirms their friendship is whole again.

You see—Now Mudasir, Asif AND Salman are all three best friends.

We can sleep tonight. Don't be proudly.

A case of bullying at a Texas high school looks like it is going to have a happy ending.

High school freshman Hannah Combs had super glue poured onto her hair and scalp last month during class by another student. She said the glue immediately started burning her, and chunks of hair started falling out.

She received first degree chemical burns from the assault.

But what really upset the family, and started a social media frenzy, was that the boy who did this only received three days of in-school suspension.

So Hannah's parents started a Facebook group called Justice For Hannah that has grown to over 25,000 members.

Messages of hope have come pouring in as Hannah's parents continue to advocate for harsher punishment against the bully. They told KCEN hat they want the boy to move schools.

Meanwhile, Hannah has a rad new undercut and a positive outlook on her future.

"I'm old enough to help people that are being bullied and even help the bully themselves become better people," she wrote on Facebook. "Did you know that half of the time the bully doesn't even know he/she is bullying anyone? But we can fix that, I know we can."

Crop your photos, people.

This couple thought they were letting people into their personal lives by announcing their engagement over Facebook.



But there was more to the photo than initially met the eye and their family was quick on the uptake.

Break found the slip up:

After bride-to-be Miranda announced that her man had finally popped the question, it seemed that their world could be nothing short of a fairy tale. I mean, everyone woman lives to announce their engagement on facebook it seems. Hilariously enough, that magical moment didn't really seem to be the case because Miranda had already accidentally tipped off her friends to look a little closer at the photo. She stated that her boyfriend didn't give her an actual ring, assuring everyone it will come later, which did nothing other than make people lean in a little too close to check out that ring.

And that's when everyone also started noticing the weird box in the corner.



Yeah, that box? It was a pregnancy test.



The scene played out over Facebook comments and you can easily imagine the happy bride-to-be put the pieces together.



And then, the admission.



Congratulations to the happy couple!
