A Note Left On a Badly Parked Car Is Going Viral For Being So Bleak

A Reddit user uploaded a dismal note left by a frustrated driver on a shoddily-parked car, captioned “absolutely heartbreaking.” The result? Internet fame.

It’s incredibly frustrating when drivers park their vehicles poorly. Everybody has equal rights to the lot, and for one car to take up two spaces out of sheer laziness and/or negligence? Now that’s just selfish. 

One driver was particularly fed up with a bad park job, so he or she left a completely joyless note on the car. A picture of it was uploaded to Reddit by user mancub2112 (the role the Redditor plays in the charade is unclear). 

Absolutely heartbreaking from funny

It reads: 

“To whoever owns this car:

My grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him, 'If you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate, you need to stop immediately.'

Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized exactly what was at stake. He quit cold-turkey that very day.

Three years later he died of lung cancer. We were very close, and his death destroyed me.

My mother said to me, 'Please never smoke. Don't put your family through what grandfather put us through'. I agreed. At 18, I have never touched a cigarette.

I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because your parking job was so sh*tty it gave me cancer anyway.

Jesus f*ck, please learn how to park.”

We’re mostly at a loss for words, here. In the future, may we all be more cognizant of how we're parking. As the gloom of the letter sinks in fully, we're trying our very  best not to let it ruin our lives.
