A WOMAN was “devastated” after finding a threatening letter on her car despite having parked in a “completely legal” spot.
The handwritten note appeared to have been written by a disgruntled neighbor urging the driver to pay for a parking space instead of taking a “valuable” spot in front of his house.
The woman’s mother-in-law found it on the car in Oldham, Greater Manchester, on Saturday.
The relative was shocked and concerned about where to park in the future, even though the maneuver was “completely legal,” he said Manchester evening news.
The notice read, “Can opener available at 81 or 83.”
“Next time you have to leave your car for more than a few hours, pay for a parking spot and don’t take up valuable parking space in front of my house!!”
“Next time, the can opener might not be so accommodating.”
The neighborly incident was shared in an anonymous post on a Royton Facebook group.
In response, the poster pointed out that no one has the right to park on a public street.
They wrote: “I am disappointed to report that this was found in my mother-in-law’s car on Radcliffe Street today.”
“This person has no idea of the circumstances as to why they parked there. However, this is immaterial as the road does not belong to any of these lots.
“She’s quite shaken up and now worried about where to park when it was perfectly legal and sensible to do so.”
She continued: “If someone has suffered criminal damage, it can provide insight into where the damage came from. Of course I can’t be sure.”
“Please move to a house with parking if you need to park near your house and don’t write threatening letters.”
It comes after a frustrated motorist took to social media to show a note left on his car by a disgruntled neighbor.
But people spent more time analyzing the neighbor’s handwriting than questionable parking.
Another motorist also found an angry note on his engine above his parking lot – and shocked onlookers with his reaction.
Meanwhile, a driver took to social media to share an angry note left on his car by a neighbor.
