CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - A Navy veteran in North Carolina who parked in a spot marked for veterans was surprised to find a note criticizing her when she returned.

Rebecca Hayes says she came out of a grocery store and found a note on her car that read, “This parking is for Veterans, lady. Learn to read and have some respect.”

Media outlets report that Hayes responded to the unsigned note on Facebook.

Hayes wrote that she’s sorry the writer couldn’t see her eight years in the United States Navy, and can’t imagine that there are female veterans. She also said she was sorry she had to explain herself “to people like you,” and couldn’t speak in person to whoever left the note.

She concluded by saying, “I served, did you?”
