Driver Writes Note About Dead Grandpa To Shame Parking Job

By

What does a bad parking job and the death of a grandfather have in common? They both combined together for a story that's gone super viral in only 24 hours.

On Tuesday, Twitter user Sarah Bryant posted a message claiming she found this note on someone's car.

The note was addressed to "whoever owns this car." It started off in a very sentimental way:

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 have to stop immediately.' Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized exactly what was at stake. He quit cold turkey that very day.

OK, so at this point, the letter is super sad. Unfortunately, it only gets worse.

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 your grandfather put us through.' I agreed.

Now it's just boring. But here comes the kicker:

I must say, I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because your parking job was so shitty, it gave me cancer anyway... please learn how to park.

LOL! OK, that was a good recovery. All in all, that was an A+ tweet, and you can totally see why it got liked over 150,000 times in just one day.

I'm not going to lie: I was a little skeptical while I was reading it.

At first, I was like, who would just take a note from another person's car? Then I wondered, why would you tell such a personal story?

But when I got to the end, I laughed and forgot what I was thinking about in the first place.

So, you guys can answer those questions yourselves. I really don't give a damn.

And to be honest, if this isn't already stolen, I might just take it and put it to use myself.

What? Some of ya'll just can't drive. That's right: ya'll.

I'm referring to you, Mr. I-have-to-break-every-two-seconds. And you too, Mrs. I-got-a-ticket-once-in-my-life-so-now-I-drive-20-miles-under-the-speed-limit.

I despise all of you guys. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the letter.
