The truth is that he knew that he was to blame for it. He’s going to be the first one to admit he messed up. However, he did not expect that the neighbor would attempt to take advantage of an honest error. He booted his computer at a loss for what to do and used a search engine to look her up. He didn’t expect anything of use to be found, so he was shocked when he saw the incredible pictures. In the end, after what she made him go through, he was able to use them as proof to get his way and get back at her. What exactly did he find in the said photos?
His Life Was Monotonous
The story revolves around a young man named Kristopher Hess. He’s been getting into some sort of routine lately. He had been working 16 hours for a local security company, then heading home at 8 in the morning to catch up on sleep. This was almost how every single day went for him. When he was called by his best friend to say that he would be around for a few days, Kristopher was happy to break up the monotony of his days. Even though he was excited, during the visit, things went south.
A Break From Routine
Mark, his best friend from childhood, would be around for the weekend of Independence Day. Kristopher could not wait for his old pal to be reunited with him. That was why he was asking for leave at work! He didn’t want anything more than to spend as much time as possible with Mark. He also used his savings aside from this to ensure they would have a good time together. Both of those guys just wanted to kick back and catch up on snacks and drinks. Mark suggested, however, that they do something else.
How To Celebrate The Holiday
When the incident happened, it was a hot day. The area had not seen rain for more than two months by then. The two pulled some deck chairs up and began to chat with each other. A few beers later, a way to spice up the holiday was suggested by Mark. There was a twinkle in his eye and a sly grin as he indicated that they could set off “good ‘ole American fireworks.” Even though Kristopher was not fully into the idea, he decided to give in.
They Bought Fireworks
Kristopher checked if his dad was around before they proceeded with the plan. The answer was no, so he dumped his savings to buy the fireworks. Kristopher said, “To be fair, I have had nothing but bad experiences with fireworks, so I had no idea how this would be any different, we got home with the fireworks, and we laid them all out on the floor; Sparklers, Bottle Rockets, Cakes, and Roman Candles.”
It Was Fun While It Lasted
It felt like Christmas had come early as the two of them checked out their haul. Kristopher then asked, “Why don’t we mess around with some sparklers since it’s still not dark yet?” Mark was delighted, of course, to hear him suggest this. In the first place, this was what he had in mind. Unfortunately, not long after that, things went downhill for them! What occurred when the fireworks were set off?
Nothing More Than A Huge Mistake
Two sparklers were lit by Kristopher: one for him and the other for his best pal. They both stared at the sparks that were tumbling down their arms. As they made tracers, drew patterns, and relived their fond memories of childhood, they waved the sticks around. They had no idea at the time that this was going to be the source of Kristopher’s headache. He later recounted, “One of the little sparkies from mine and my friends’ sparkler made contact with the ground and made two small fires…”
The Lawn Went Up In Flames
They hadn’t expected things would get out of hand. The backyard was, unfortunately, so dry that two small fires soon turned into a raging inferno. To their horror, the flames were also approaching the neighbor’s yard. Kristopher said, “I ran as fast as I could to grab the garden hose and quickly started spraying down the fire. It was no use. It was spreading faster than I could spray it.”
She Saw An Opportunity
Kristopher rushed to call 911 as his friend tried his best to put out the flames. It was, unfortunately, too late for them to do anything about it. The neighbor came out to help them extinguish it once the fire made contact with the flames. Kristopher was guilty, but because Patricia seemed to understand the situation, he felt relieved. But this hasn’t been the case. He even noticed, in fact, her sinister grin that had disappeared as soon as it came.
After A Long Day At Work
His break was stressful, but he had no option but to go back to work after that. He was still feeling bad about what happened. It felt as though he was wasting his day off. He was more than ready to rest after he departed from work on the first day back. There was a surprise awaiting him, though, as soon as he got home!
Asking Him For Money
To his surprise, he saw Patricia’s two quotes. One was for $4,000, which was intended to pay for a new fence. The other was for six thousand dollars, which was supposed to replace the lawn. Kristopher didn’t have that kind of cash with him. Actually, after spending his last dime on the fireworks, he was all out. He showed his dad the quotes. After seeing that it was written in Microsoft Word and had no company name or logo, the old man told Kristopher, “Son, don’t you give that con artist a single dime.”
Taking Matters Into His Own Hand
Aside from the amounts of money, she also added a note at the bottom: “I will also be having you pay my water bill for three months because the new yard will need lots of water.” Frustrated with what he had read, he posted, “Now the fence this woman had before was raggedy and falling apart. Her yard? Dead grass, weeds everywhere, never mowed it. Now looking at this paper, she wants a mahogany fence and a brand new back yard with flowers and trimmed hedges? I said, ‘I need to get an estimate myself. This doesn’t feel right…’”
Using His Connections
Thankfully, one of his buddies worked as a contractor. According to this individual, the lawn was probably in bad shape, even years before the accident took place. With all the fire damage, however, they could not prove this. It was true that a fresh lawn, a mahogany fence, flowers, cut hedges, and more were needed for Patricia. Fortunately, Kristopher knew a person who was able to do all that at a reasonable price. He even asked the contractor to come over to check and give a quote for the place.
She Threw A Fit
The next day, the contractor went to the woman’s house. Before they could even inspect the damage, however, Patricia interrupted them. She was flailing her arms as she yelled, “I did not give you permission to get an estimate on my fence!” In which he replied, “The fence separates the property line, so it’s both of our fences.” Another clear sign she was panicking was that she had asked for help from the cops!
Giving Her The Estimates
Kristopher stated, “She calls the cops on me for having a contractor, and they ultimately can’t do a single thing because I’m on my property.” The contractor quickly finished the estimate to a price of $1,200. This teenager has a lot of connections. While he was a grocer, Kristopher met a person who took care of lawns, and that person he could reseed the yard for about $800. On the ProRevenge subreddit, Kristopher wrote, “After I get these estimates, I give copies to the woman, and she is having none of it.”
She Made Excuses
By the time Patricia received the estimates that Kristopher sent her, she told him, “I don’t know these people, I don’t want them near my house. They’re probably really bad contractors.” Kristopher replied, “No, I know them personally. They are nice people and do great work.” Despite his attempts in trying to make her understand, she simply did not see it from his point of view and just closed the door on him.
The Last Straw
Kristopher said, “I ended up working a 16hr shift that night and got home at 8 am, and this woman comes knocking on my door at 9 am and demanded I speak to her, “I explained, ‘I would love to do this, but I just got home, and I have to be back at work in less than 5 hours. I need to sleep.’” Her response to that? “What kind of lazy jerk sleeps in until 2 pm?” Kristopher was done being pushed around by this arrogant woman.
Giving Her An Ultimatum
Continuing what he had said, Kristopher added, “At this point, I had about lost it and told her: ‘you can either accept my $2000 for my quotes or get nothing.’ She stood there for a while with her mouth open, but she accepted my offer and planned to meet down at the notary the next morning,” Kristopher drew up a contract for her as he thought that the finally saw some sense. He even gathered $2,000 to pay her for the work! Patricia however, had something else in mind.
She Stood Him Up
He got up the next day and grabbed the contract. He was thrilled that the ordeal would finally end! There’s nothing else he wanted more, after all, than to never talk to his wife again. He went to meet her at a notary’s office, but she did not appear until three hours later. “I get a message from her saying ‘I’m sorry the $2000 isn’t enough, I’m having my guys start work on this project, and you will be paying me the full price,’” he shared. After this, Kristopher knew that he had to come up with a different plan.
Waiting For An Opportunity
“After that, I did not say a single word to her, and I watched for a few months as these guys turned her backyard into an oasis, complete with a small pond, brand new Sod, flowers, the whole 9 yards,” he said. “Come to find out she had plans to remodel these things for a long time and was just waiting for the opportunity to go through with it.”
He Looked Her Up Online
It’s essential to take note that Kristopher was aware he made a huge mistake. He felt guilty that the yard had been burned down and he even wanted to make it up to her. But she tried simply to take advantage of him! He turned on his computer at a loss as to what to do next. He was shocked to see photos of her on a community page when he went on Facebook that they were both a part of. He was unable to believe what he was seeing. It seems like the reason she wanted more money from him was finally found.
The Photos In Question
Kristopher said, “She used her remodel funds to go on a trip to Hawaii. Do you know how I found out about this? She was bragging about it on the neighborhood Facebook group and didn’t know I was in it.” The photos were all there for everyone to see. The entire time, she had been drinking pricey cocktails in a luxury resort in Hawaii! She was chilling there with her girlfriends as he worked hard to pay her. After a long wait, he asked Reddit, “Are you ready for the revenge?”
Taking It To Court
“Now, four months after the fire and all the remodels, I get served papers to go to court for $10,300. At 18 years old, I have to hire a lawyer to work my case, when we finally do get into court, I lay everything out: the quotes, being harassed multiple times, not showing up after agreeing to a deal, not wanting me to get my quotes (required by law, btw), and her bragging about conning me out of money… and, I have proof of all of this.” Kristopher continued to share.
What The Judge Told Her
Kristopher talked about what happened in court. He shared, “The judge looked at her and said, ‘Ma’am with all due respect. You’re out of your dadgum mind. Not only did this young man tell the truth of what happened, but he also offered to pay you more than he was supposed to. Your lawn was already dead before the fire occurred, therefore;, he is only responsible for the fence of $1200. I will also deduct from this his lawyer fees.’”
He Got The Last Laugh
Kristopher concluded the story by telling fellow Redditors, “She took a huge financial loss from this, not sure how much the Hawaii trip cost her, but she was in serious debt. She ended up having to sell the house because of it and moved into a smaller house. Haven’t heard anything from her since. To this day, I still do not use fireworks because we could’ve hurt someone. What I have learned through this, though, is its best to take responsibility for your actions from the gate.”
Neighbors Are Not Always Pleasant
If you think this story is crazy, wait until you hear of the next one we have to tell you. Without actually having one, you could not imagine what having a bad neighbor is. How does someone deal with a situation of this type? By calmly talking it out and trying to have a conversation that is mature and respectful? But what if talking to them is impossible? Living next to someone that you don’t see eye to eye would be so uncomfortable. But there’s always a choice, and at the same time the man in the story we’re about to tell you showed courage and inspired us all. Once we tell you what happened, you will not be able to take your eyes off the screen!
Going Too Far
As he was parking his car in his driveway, he was very angry. Since he’s a police officer, he’s got a lot of different things in his entire service. But he could not compare what he saw that day with anything he had seen before. Once he had seen what his neighbours had done, his blood was boiling! His reaction To the first? As hard as possible, to close his fits to calm himself. That was it, the war had begun, and so he said “This is war” between his teeth
The Officer Of The Law
Let’s have the hero of our story introduced. For 40 years, David Ellis was a police officer for the Los Angeles Police Department. His work mainly consisted of catching those involved in drugs and fraud. He lived and always complied with the law in a small private neighborhood. He found a hobby to do on weekends, working in his garden, after so many years.
The Last Straw
As usual, he took care of his garden as if it was the most valuable treasure in the world. With all of the weekends that he spent cutting the grass, watering the plants, and taking care of his little oasis, something was about to happen that would set him off. After a tough week at work, he enjoyed tending to his beautiful garden to loosen up.
The Crux Of The Drama
Not everything is as it appears. Soon enough some rude and disrespectful neighbors would ensure that everything that David had been working on would be wrecked. A strange fact is that somehow they were connected but didn’t get along and had been keeping their distance for a while. David never looked for difficulties and let each of them have their own. That’s until it got too big for the ball. All the problems revolved around a path that surrounded David’s property.
“A Complete Nutjob”
There were many potholes that seemed to appear out of the blue, but David took the matter into his own hands, and fixed them for years, given that no one cared or did anything to fix it. He was worried that there might be an accident and somebody would get hurt. Not everybody is like David, unfortunately, and his neighbors had different plans for them.
Passing The Responsibility
His neighbors wanted the gravel to be changed to asphalt, and David refused. No one was willing to pay the cash required to do that. This had been the reason for the two parties’ struggles, a struggle that had gone back generations before. Even David’s daughter said she couldn’t remember a time when there was no fighting between them and said, “Everybody here is a complete nutjob.”
A Gesture Of Goodwill
David, even though he didn’t have to do it, was the only one taking care of the gravel road. Instead, his neighbors would laugh at him, and so David’s daughter was so angry with the injustice that she told her dad to do something to put an end to the conflict once and for all. His neighbors were so thankless that they took advantage of David instead of being appreciative.
Enough Is Enough
But some people are just very difficult to talk to or to reason with, and some of them were David’s neighbors, who blamed him for the situation. How is justice like this? How did the neighbors have the nerve to come and complain to David about how he took care of the gravel? The road was used daily by all of the residents in that gated community!
Protecting What Was His
One thing that needs to be mentioned in order to understand the story is that there was only a square meter of David’s private yard in the gravel. And it was this way to avoid all kinds of accidents and to make it easy for the divers to pass through his property without the risk of damaging it. But David was so lovely that he and his neighbors were willing to negotiate.
Inspecting The Damage
As if it wasn’t enough, David also offered them 3 square feet of his land, so that it would be easier for them to turn around where he lived. He only wanted to make everybody happy. The neighbors, however were so stuck on their idea that they completely rejected Davids’s proposal instead of reaching a compromise. They also drove closer to his property, which at this stage could be easily damaged.
A Series Of Barrels
Until the day arrived, David could still handle the situation and enough was sufficient. One of his neighbors had ordered wood, and he did a bad turn and drove over his fence as the truck was trying to get past David’s property. Of course, one would assume that the damage had to be repaired in cash or otherwise, but no one was willing to do it. Miha, his daughter, said, “We had to replant these plants and place a new metal fence,”
“My father told me this was not the first time this happened, but the third. I couldn’t believe it when I heard this.” David finally decided to take matters into his hands and protect his property once the police had finished fixing the fence. Another level of disrespect and disregard towards him had been reached by the neighbors. He went home after the event and carefully evaluated the damage, saying, “This is war.” He had given his neighborhood everything and in turn, they were ungrateful.
Thinking Up Other Ways
The day he saw that the cypress trees were damaged, he snapped and decided that getting perfect revenge was the only way to change. He decided to place large barrels around his portion of the gravel supposed to pass through his neighbors. At first, they did not understand, but soon, they would learn that they were not just simple barrels.
Petty Revenge Turning Pro
But the story is not yet over. Three neighbors knocked at his door in a matter of 6 hours, angry as ever because their cars were damaged after hitting the barrels David had placed on his property. The barrels were full of stones, so the car could easily be damaged by a hit. But it wasn’t all of this because David had more surprises coming for them.
Cement And Poles
His neighbor threatened him and said he would call the police, and even worse, he told him to watch out because he could get a “pickaxe to the back.” No one knew the law better than David, so he kept his cool and told the neighbor that since it was his property, and the neighbors knew this, he had all the right to put the barrels there. But the fight was still not over.
The New Solution
At first the barrels worked and seemed to protect his property, but after being hit by so many passing cars, they would soon get damaged. So as expected, the barrels broke down and stopped working after a year. He had something different to come up with, but after realizing that the war wasn’t going to be won so easily, he knew that he had to take his game up a notch, and so, he did something one night that would finally teach his neighbors a lesson.
A Lesson Learned
When returning home, the first person who would discover the surprise did not know what was coming. As usual, without looking twice and without noting that there was flower bread laid around his property, he decided to pass through David’s property. The neighbor became angry and had a long conversation with his insurance company. David’s plan, meanwhile, seemed to have worked this time.
David has had enough of his neighbor’s disregard and came up with the perfect plan. “My dad was furious. He cut some wood to use it as a mold. He bought cement, sand, and metal poles. One peaceful afternoon, my father and I cemented that whole part of the land and placed some lovely flowers on top. So when they hit the concrete, they can smell our flowers of victory/defeat.” Miha wrote on the r/ProRevenge subreddit.
After the first person encountered the new technique, David knew that his plan was working, David had put a small concrete hidden by the flowerbed right on the part where the neighbors did the turn or some cut right through the land. They could not destroy his estate anymore.
Without looking twice, several of his disrespectful neighbors damaged their cars while cutting through the corner. They had to learn the hard way, but they would eventually learn to stay away from his estate. The angry knocking at his door was done. But when one of them decided to hire a lawyer to find a way to stop David, the fight was not over.
As it is natural, many cars got damaged, which led David to prove to the insurance companies that since it was his property, what he had done was legal. He had done his homework and knew the risk of the cement wall being planted. But because that piece of land belonged to him, no one could tell him anything.
As David’s revenge story went viral since it was shared on Reddit, it just made those who read it so happy. One of them has written, “I’m very amused by the logic some people go by, for example, If I intentionally hit your property and it damages my vehicle, it’s still your fault (the owner of the property) for trying to protect your property and not letting me just destroy your property… and you should compensate me for the damage caused by my stupidity.”
“They ran over your trees? OHHH BOY, If they run over any more of your trees, look up your local laws about trees. People have been sued for TONS of money over the destruction of trees because they take so long to grow, so they have a lot of value.” Followed up by another person. What are your thoughts on David’s ultimate decision? What are your thoughts on the ultimate decision David made? Has it gotten out of hand?
The users on Reddit wanted to express their opinions about this particular story. They appreciated how much the man had thought things out before he acted on his plan. In general, people online have supported what he did. If you take a look at the same subreddit, you’ll find more than your fair share of revenge stories. People took to the comment section to discuss similar things that have happened to them or their loved ones. Let’s talk about another great revenge story that kept people on the edge of their seats.
Here we’re going to talk about a man who put a disrespectful and rude woman in her place. On top of that, he was also able to get revenge on her. Essentially, he was able to hit two birds with one store. The story went on while he’d been working on a project along with his construction team. We all know how much work is involved when the materials need to be loaded onto the site. It turns out that this encounter became doubly stressful all because a woman didn’t want to make way for the truck coming in.
A Different Project
She refused to move her car out of the way so the truck could go through. The man knew he wouldn’t be able to get through to her. At least, not on his own. He knew that the police wouldn’t be able to do much very quickly. So, he decided to get to work and worry about the problem later. The woman ignored him – after she insulted him. The man started thinking about how he can teach her a lesson. He wanted to make sure she’d regret her actions and the way she treated him.
It’s difficult building a house atop a hill. Construction is complicated in itself, throw it on top of a hill, and it’s a whole new level of difficult. What’s more, the only way these workers had to carry their materials was through a path that was 250 feet long. Meaning that the workers had even more work on top of their own. The project would take much longer than usual, of course. It’s a good thing they managed to find a silver lining.
Most Complied Quickly
The construction workers were aware of what they were signing up for when they agreed to work on this specific project. Aside from working on top of a hill, they had to carry all the materials up since cars and trucks weren’t able to get through. So, they’d carry the materials up a winding 250-foot path. It wouldn’t be easy and it would take longer than the usual kind of project. Luckily for them, there was something small that eased their load a little bit.
A Mom Waiting For Her Child
At the beginning of the path, at the bottom of the hill, the workers had two parking spots reserved for them and those working on the site. Those two official parking spots made the situation just a bit more bearable for the workers. There were signs up that read “No Parking” to ensure no one would take up the spots when they’d need them. Unfortunately, this wasn’t a foolproof plan. There were people who simply didn’t care and completely disregarded the signs.
Still Wouldn’t Move
It’s so frustrating hearing about people who ignore rules and instructions like these. There were clear signs that those parking spaces were reserved and unavailable. It’s not like people weren’t aware that they weren’t meant to park there. However, there was an elementary school nearby, meaning that there were parents who would occasionally park in those spots while waiting for their kids. For the most part, this wasn’t an issue. It only became a problem when a car would be parked there at a bad time.
A Brilliant Idea
The workers didn’t mind people being in the spots temporarily so long as the parents were considerate. The foreman was nice and let them park there for short periods of time despite the fact that it was illegal. Officially, the only ones allowed to park there were the construction workers. To the foreman, it didn’t matter so long as it didn’t affect his work. Unfortunately, people decided to abuse this act of kindness.
As we’ve mentioned, the foreman had no problem with parents using the parking spots occasionally. However, there was no way to let them know ahead of time when a delivery truck would be on the way. Normally, the foreman would go up to the drivers and ask them to move their cars away so the truck could park. For the most part, the drivers made no problems and would immediately move out of the way. This woman was not like all those people, however.
Calling The Authorities
When the foreman got word that a lumbar delivery was scheduled that day, he went about his normal routine. He walked down the hill to make sure the parking spots were empty for the incoming truck. When he got there, he saw a car parked in one of the two spots. A woman was in the driver’s seat. Just like he would any other time, he walked up to her winder to ask her to move her car for the expected delivery.
Her Ineffectual Rage
He had no reason to think this incident would go any differently than the rest. In the past, drivers fully understood where he was coming from. They didn’t make a big deal out of it. He guessed this woman was waiting for her child to finish school. It looked like she was simply waiting in her idling car. So, he made sure to be polite when asking her to move her car out of the spot. Well, this woman acted rather differently than other parents normally did.
No Backing Down
What she did next took him by surprise. It was the first time someone reacted this way to his request. After he asked the woman to move her car out of the parking space, she said to him, “I’ll just be a few minutes, and your truck isn’t here, take a chill pill dude.” The foreman never would have expected such a sharp and rude response. He was still in momentary shock, trying to collect his thoughts when the truck pulled up.
She Was Livid
Finally, the delivery truck got there carrying the lumber they needed. He thought this would cause her to pull out of the parking spot since she said she would. It turned out that wasn’t the case. The truck might have arrived, but the woman still didn’t move her car. In fact, all she did was roll up her window and ignore the foreman completely. He kept trying to get her attention, waving at her to move her car. She then rolled her window down and yelled at him, “WHAT?”.
Per Company Policy
The foreman couldn’t believe the way this woman was acting. It’s a good thing he remained calm and collected. He simply told her that she had to get out of there. He used a firm tone, showing her how serious the situation actually was. That didn’t work. She still refused to move. Instead, all she responded was, “Can’t you guys just unload around me? Jesus, it’s not that hard.” It began dawning on him just how little she cared and how she was not about to move her car an inch.
Showing Her Anger
The day took an unpleasant turn thanks to her rude and inconsiderate behavior. The foreman couldn’t believe she was acting so hard-headed when she obviously was in the wrong. It didn’t help that she was being rude about it, too. After all, he was still being polite to her. By then, he had another thing on his mind. He told the driver to parallel park so the truck would be as close to the car as possible.
A Burst Of Rage
He came up with a plan. The truck driver understood what he was trying to do right away. Once the foreman told him what to do, the driver smiled at him knowingly and did as he was told. It was time to teach this woman a lesson. She had no idea karma was well on its way. Since another car was parked nearby, the woman was parked between that and the port-a-potty being used by the workers. As a matter of fact, her car was right in front of the port-a-potty.
The truck driving got to work and did what he was asked by the foreman. He knew what was going to happen after that. We can’t help but be pleased that they executed the plan perfectly. By doing so, they blocked the side of the woman’s car so she was boxed into the curb with nowhere to go. Aside from this being a great plan, this guaranteed some very satisfying results. This woman had to learn her lesson. At the time, she’d been ignoring them and didn’t even notice what was going on around her.
Failed Attempt To Escape
Once the foreman and the driver cornered her there, they had one thing left to do. The foreman called the parking officers and explained what went on. “At this point in time I wasn’t trying to get her in trouble, I just wanted a record of why we were blocking part of the street, so we don’t get in trouble with the city,” he explained. He wanted the cops to know what was going on and handle the situation. It felt like this was the best way to ensure the rude woman got what she deserved.
Lying To The Police Officer
After he told the parking officers what was going on, he assumed the whole thing would be over quickly. An officer told him they would arrive in 30 minutes’ time. Still, the foreman was more than surprised by the way everything unfolded after that. Things got even more complicated once the woman’s son finally came out of his school. It was only then that she realized she wasn’t able to open her car door the whole way. What would she do about it?
We can’t help but wonder if she regretted her actions once she caught wind of what was happening. Do you think she started thinking she should have moved the car when she still had the chance? The foreman was wondering this himself when he saw the woman trying to get out of her car. He stared at her, wondering what she’d do next. He was surprised to see her glare at him. It looked like she was convinced he was the bad guy when he really did nothing wrong.
You can imagine that the whole construction team found this situation very funny. It was obvious that the woman was less than happy about the way things turned out for her. She was clearly furious. Even though we understand her reaction, we can’t forget that she’s the one who got herself into this mess in the first place. She’s the guilty one here. And so, she climbed over to the passenger seat and tried getting out of the car from that side. Somehow, she managed to get her son inside the car. However, what she did next shocked absolutely everyone – even us.
Once her son was safely in the backseat, the woman realized just how bad her situation was. Suddenly, she went over to the truck driver and the foreman. The men tried holding in their laughter by this point. We’re sure they would have loved laughing right in her face. After all she’d done, it was satisfying seeing her so distraught. The woman must have realized that these people wouldn’t let her off the hook so easily. Still, her reaction took them by surprise.
Surveying The Scene
It was clear as day how angry she truly was. She must have known there was no way out for her car until the truck would drive off. After all, every other possible route was blocked. A port-a-potty blocked her car on the left side, the curb blocked her on the right. “I’m in a big hurry, you need to move your truck right now so I can go,” she said to the foreman and his workers. The moment of revenge finally arrived.
It’s no surprise that she reacted the way she did. Despite the fact that she was at these people’s mercy, she still spoke to them rudely and in an entitled manner. The two men there had everything planned out. They didn’t want to give her the last laugh. The driver said to her, “Ma’am, in order to unload the lumber on the truck, we had to unstrap it, and per our company policy, I’m not allowed to move the truck with any unsecured load on it.”
This was the moment it all happened. The woman was so livid about her situation. The driver and the foreman were obviously not helping her calm down in the slightest. In fact, they only made the situation worse. Suddenly, she snapped. She began throwing a proper fit, screaming profanities at the men instead. “I have somewhere to be!” she kept telling them. It was obvious she was losing her temper completely.
Despite the fact that the woman was throwing a tantrum, the two men stayed calm while watching her go on with her antics. She had no clue that the police were already on the way. She remained oblivious even when a police car pulled up right behind the truck. The foreman and driver had the advantage since the police officer was able to hear and see all that was going on. By then, the woman was still cursing at the two men. She really should have stopped sooner.
While she verbally attacked them, the men remained as calm as ever. They knew they had the upper hand in more ways than one. The police officer was already there and would soon take care of the situation. However, the foreman could no longer hold himself back. He said to the woman, “Can’t you just pull out around it? It’s not that hard.” You can imagine what reaction this sentence got out of the woman. She was beyond furious.
That’s when the police officer finally approached the woman and the truck driver. When the woman caught sight of the officer, she put her car in the reverse and started going. That must have been the only thing she could think of at the time that would get her out of this mess. Well, she obviously didn’t think things through. She crashed into the port-a-potty. She didn’t seem to care, though. This is not the end of the story.
She did something that shocked everyone in sight. None of the people there could expect what the woman did next. Who would have guessed she’d do something so extreme and reckless just because she didn’t get her way? She drove onto the sidewalk. So, she was charged with reckless driving. All the onlookers were so confused about what she was trying to do. It got her nowhere – except jail, of course.
