Why be so nasty

To the female who left a note on my father's car during the Ticonderoga High School Academic Awards night:
My 86 year old father is a life long resident of New York, despite the fact that he now winters in Missouri. He is a WW 2 vet of the 4th Marine Division, volunteer fireman for over 20 years, and volunteered on community boards as member and chairman in this area. He raised 6 kids, one of whom might be giving you medical aid at your next medical visit.
He parked his car at 5 Caulkins place, as you so carefully noted, leaving you 6 feet behind you for getting out, to attend an award ceremony for his Grandchildren. Are you so unable to find the reverse gear that you must instead take the most awful response and leave foul language and degrading notes on his car? Are you so consumed with hatred for your fellow humans that you actually drive around with reprinted "Summons- Notice of inconsideration" all the time and pay good money to perpetuate vitriol?
So what, if he "might" have screwed up. Are you perfect? Or are you not human?
I feel sorry for you that this is the stuff that your life is made of. If you can't see the other side of things, then certainly you will find anger and hatred where ever you look. Would you like me to leave notes like this on your elder grandparents windshield?

I write this so maybe you will consider you actions and not continue this way, for your own sake and for my need to let other people know who lives among us- meaning my father and you.

I was saddened to read this... it is way to easy for people to act out in hate than to just turn the other cheek or just let something go. I'm sorry someone felt it was needed to act out in such a childish way toward one of our vets and senior citizens. There is a serious lack of patience and respect in our society today!

Geeze Louise if they pissed me off that bad I'd just have to wait them out and administer a corrective assbeating to the offending motorist. At least they would remember that even if there was no lesson learned. Who remembers a stupid note any way?

Tell your father thank you for being such a great man. It sounds as though he touched many lives here in Ticonderoga. Try to see the good in each day rather than the bad. I am sure his grandson was very proud his grandfather was there to support him. Congratulations to your family. I have learned an important lesson in life, we can't control what people may do or say, we can only control ourselves. It sure sounds like your father learned that lesson a long time ago. You sure have a dad to be proud of. The person who wrote that letter certainly did not have a role model like your father in his life. Life is beautiful!

I hope they don't let him drive the firetruck.
