Elderly woman leaves scathing note after carpark scrape
AN elderly woman looked the picture of innocence when she left a hand written note on a car she had scraped in a Pacific Fair car park.
But it turns out it was a case of wolf in sheep's clothing and the note left behind was anything but virtuous.
"You parked over the yellow line - try and do better than that," the note read.
A photo of the crafty note was posted on the Crime Watch Now Gold Coast Facebook page last week and has since gone viral.
The bystander who took the photo told Nine News she was a shocked at the behaviour of the woman who seemed to be in her seventies.
"I saw her hit the last bit of the bumper. So I stood there and pretended to play with my tablet to see if she would leave a note," the woman, who wished to remain anonymous, said.
"I actually had my car damaged by someone hitting it about six months ago and they didn't leave a note or anything.
"One of my pet hates is people hitting cars and not leaving notes."
The elderly woman reportedly seemed like an upstanding citizen as she sat in her car writing the note before tucking it into the side mirror of her victim's car and walking into the shopping centre.
"I thought it was a bit bizarre because I've never seen anyone leave a note there before. Usually it's under the wipers, so I went to have a look," the woman said.
"That's when I saw what she had written and I was so angry that I took a photo of it."
"I thought, my god, you would think a person of that age would have more common sense and morals than trying to blame the person."
In addition to the note, the woman snapped a photo of the two cars and passed the woman's registration details onto the shopping centre's centre management.
