A man took to Reddit and reminisced about when he took revenge on people who parked in his private parking spaces.
A Long Time Ago
Twenty years ago, a family owned two apartment buildings, each containing three units in the suburbs of Chicago.
Renting Out Houses
Two were the family’s homes, while the tenants rented the others. But alas, only some units came with a parking spot.
Plenty of Parking
Houses filled the streets, and drivers quickly claimed the scarce parking spots.
However, the family had more land than their neighbors, and they had managed to create parking for sixteen cars. For decades, this had been enough.
Uninvited Guests in Their Parking Lot
But then, the unthinkable happened. Cars started appearing in their lot, cars that did not belong to their tenants.
One day, the family blocked one of these cars in, only for the driver to plow through their bushes and yard to escape!
Call the Cops
They would sometimes call the cops, but they were powerless to assist.
So, the family hired a tow company and erected signs warning unauthorized cars would be towed.
The signs worked, and the parking lot remained clear of unwelcome guests.
New Year’s Eve
That is, until the fateful New Year’s Eve when the family returned home to find every spot filled.
Cars Blocked In
Cars were even blocking other vehicles on the streets. The family was outraged, so they called the tow company, but they were too busy to help.
Freezing Weather Conditions
Winter air was bitter cold in Chicago, so the family hatched a plan. They dug out their lawn sprinklers and hoses and ran hot water through them so they wouldn’t freeze.
Revenge Is a Dish Best Served Cold
And for nearly five hours, they moved the sprinklers every half-hour, encasing every car, every inch of the parking lot, and the street in ice.
Content With Their Revenge
The family was not content with just the ice. They sprayed it in the locks, between the window seals and glass, and in the grills. They put away the sprinklers and hoses and then went to bed, content with their revenge.
A Rude Awakening
But at 4 am, they were awoken by furious pounding on their doors and non-stop ringing of their doorbells. The family smiled.
Who Is to Blame?
The people claimed a “friend” who owned an apartment several buildings away had told them to park there. It turned out it was the same idiot who drove over their bushes.
The family pointed to the tow sign and told the people to move their cars or get towed.
In their town, the cops could ticket on private property with the owner’s permission, so all the cars were ticketed and towed. Oh, how they wished they had caught it all on video.
Revenge Is Sweet
The family had gotten their revenge, and justice had been served. The only sound that filled the air was the laughter of the cops, who found the whole situation quite amusing.
Wow..You Stole Christmas!
Redditors found this “pro-revenge” amusing to say the least. Witch36 wrote, “As someone who understands Chicago parking and winters this is amazing.”
Another user said, “It’s a shame the people got ticketed rather than the person who told them to park there.”
A few people didn’t agree with the family’s actions. One user responded, “Why did you do that? Many likely parked there for the first time, for an NYE party, and perhaps hurt no one. Did you steal Christmas the following year?”
