ENTITLED TO PARK: Our letter writer has been falsely accused of parking in a restricted zone. John Mccutcheon

OPINION: Who are you to tell me where I can't park?

READER COMMENT: PARKING at Sunshine Plaza can be a mission at times and one can be tempted to use parking bays that we are not entitled to, such as disabled or senior parks.

I am proud to say that I am not one of those people.

Today, however, I had the misfortune of someone assuming that I was.

Returning to my car I was confronted with the following note on my windscreen, "You didn't look to be a senior, read the sign, consider elderly. Your fine is in mail as you were watched."

To the author of this note, I did read the sign and, as I am a senior, parked where I was entitled to.

Secondly, I suffer from a disability and have recently been diagnosed with cancer.

Perhaps you could have asked instead of just sitting back thinking the worst of me.

Should I receive such a fine perhaps you may consider secretly paying it for me just as you are so quick to secretly leave notes on people's windows.

Oh and thanks for the compliment.

D.M.
