Two guys managed to get the perfect revenge on a man who took up two parking spaces in a car park.
There’s lots of annoying things which can happen in car parks. Stray trolleys can stand in your way, other cars can swoop in and steal the spot you’d set your heart on, and don’t even get me started on tiny cars creating the illusion of a free space.
Possibly the most annoying thing people do in car parks is parking over the line. A little accidental overlap might be acceptable, but the guy in this video had no regard for the divide and decided to park right in the middle of two spaces, with the line neatly down the centre of his car.
Check out the way the other drivers got their revenge:
The video was taken in Oregon, USA, when two people – who just happened to both own huge jeeps – appeared in the car park and taught the driver of the red car a lesson for his thoughtless parking.
The drivers of the big vehicles squeezed their way into the spaces either side of the offending car, getting as close as they could without actually touching, consequently making it impossible for the driver to fully open the doors of their red car.
The pranksters left the vehicles in a snug row and went to hide in a place where they could see the driver’s reaction, saying ‘let’s wait for the guy’.
Crouching behind some grass – which didn’t appear to be very concealing, but seemed to do the trick – the truck drivers filmed the driver of the red car returning to his vehicle to find it sandwiched between the two huge jeeps.
Assessing the situation, the driver walked around the one of the trucks to try to find a way to open his car doors to a point where he could squeeze in, but there was no hope.
The man threw his arms around in a tantrum while the men behind the camera laughed at the success of their plan.
Sharing the video online, one of the jeep owners wrote:
It makes me mad when cars don’t park right, so I decided to teach this Mercedes driver a lesson.
The man kicked each of the trucks’ huge tyres in frustration – although there was no way that was going to have any effect on the massive wheels, or help to free his car for that matter.
Seeing only one way out of the situation, the driver popped open his boot and clambered in through the rear. He crawled over the back seat, legs flailing very ungraciously in the air, and wiggled his way into the vehicle.
He eventually manages to squeeze his car out from between the two jeeps – although it would have taken some very steady and very straight reversing to avoid any collisions. Let alone concentration!
I think the jeep drivers well and truly got their revenge!
