Not only can rude drivers easily ruin your day, but their ability to quickly speed away makes it rare for them to face any consequences. When they do get caught in their bad behavior, though, they often get their sweet comeuppance.
In early 2018, one mechanic struggled with a neighbor’s car repeatedly wrecking his plans. Once the situation went too far, he devised a plan to ensure that the jerk would never cross him again. His justice might not have been blind, but it was hilarious…
They say you should keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but one Australian mechanic would strongly disagree. The young man, known on Reddit as AngryAussieGam3r, had neighbors that were making his life a nightmare.
After toiling away at work all day, AngryAussie was looking forward to a night out on the town with his mates. However, he spotted something in his apartment building’s garage that immediately soured his good mood.
Some strange car had blocked him in! He waited around, hoping the driver left the vehicle there while making a quick drop-off, but AngryAussie was out of luck. With no other option, he had to call one of his friends to pick him up instead. Then things got worse.
In the following weeks, the rude car kept showing up at odd intervals, preventing AngryAussie from driving. He left a series of polite notes on the perpetrator’s windshield, but he never saw any response or change in behavior. He couldn’t believe this!

Frustration building, AngryAussie guessed that the driver was someone who repeatedly got drunk and conveniently “forgot” to move his car out of the way. It was a decent theory, but he had no hard evidence of how to identify this serial jerk.
AngryAussie came across countless examples of people responding to bad parking jobs on the internet. Unfortunately, this car owner didn’t seem to respond at all to shame. The mechanic would have to apply a different strategy — and fast.
The rude neighbor was making him late on an unpredictable basis. He never knew when to expect the car to block him in, so he would often have to walk or hitch a ride without warning. And AngryAussie had one upcoming obligation he couldn’t miss.
It wasn’t often that he and his six closest friends could all get together, but they had a weekend getaway coming up that required AngryAussie’s car. In order for the special trip to happen, he needed to make sure he wasn’t parked in.

Hoping the proper authorities could take care of the problem, AngryAussie contacted his building manager. The guy refused to even address the problem, or even identify the car’s owner, so the mechanic decided to get more serious.
When he found himself parked in yet again, AngryAussie called a towing company. Because his vehicle was up on the garage’s third story, however, they would not accept the job. He would have to take matters into his own hands.
Not long before his big trip, AngryAussie searched through his auto shop for some tool to help him out of this jam. He smiled — a rarity in those days — as he came across just what he was looking for.
The morning of their big vacation, AngryAussie and his friends entered his garage to find the worst possible scenario. The jerk blocked his car again! Strangely, AngryAussie didn’t lose his cool. He just ran upstairs and grabbed a strange metal contraption.
He explained to his pals that he borrowed a vehicle positioning jack. Its wheels and hydraulic pump would allow them to easily lift up a parked car and move it wherever they wanted. Rubbing their hands in glee, the friends got it in position.

As they boosted the car up, AngryAussie’s eyes darted around the garage. While they weren’t doing anything illegal — like stealing the car — it might not look that way to any security guards in the area.
Luckily, the coast looked clear. Moving as quickly as they could while pushing a two-ton car, the seven mates each got a handhold and started to heave it toward a distant, dark corner of the garage. AngryAussie’s plan soon became apparent.

He found a spot at the end of the garage where they fit the rude neighbor’s car perfectly in between the wall and a pillar. The owner would easily be able to enter or exit the car, but moving it would be another matter.
With only a few inches of space at the front and back of the vehicle, its driver would have a miserable time getting it out. Most likely, he’d have to angle it forward and backward a staggering number of times to pull it out of the spot.
Satisfied with their work, AngryAussie and his six friends jumped in his car and sped out of the garage. Each of them agreed they’d never had so much fun parking a car before. They were far from your typical valet service.
Even while enjoying his getaway, AngryAussie couldn’t help but wonder about the jerk driver. How long would it take him to find his car? Would he even try moving it? Upon getting home days later, he immediately returned to the scene of the crime to check.
Understandably, the car was still there — who’d want to move it unless they really had to? But a few days later, the unimaginable happened: AngryAussie never saw the problem car again. It left just as suddenly as it arrived. The clever mechanic knew he could rest easy, now that his revenge was complete.
