How do Brits vent their anger? By writing angry letters and notes of course.
This is exactly what the residents of Bristol have been doing in response to bad car parking on their streets.
A local blogger, Dan Mehmet, noticed people who lived near his home in Bristol were partial to penning such passive-aggressive messages for fellow drivers over their inconsiderate parking.
He started taking photos of the humorous notes and posted a collection of his favourites the website for his video creation company, Sparcol.
Among the best was an irate ‘Mr Banks’ who penned a neat note to ask a driver who blocked his driveway ‘Are you drunk?’
Another less polite local used a thick marker to write an A4 sized message - ‘Do NOT Park You’re Car like AN A** AGAIN ’D**K’.
Leaving a more permanent reminder, one person wrote their warning on the ROAD in spray paint - ‘BEWARE PARKING FINE HERE’.
Other examples include a furious resident who wrote ‘DON’T PARK ON THE PAVEMENT’ on a sticky label, and plastered it to a side window.
Dan, from Bristol, said: ‘What do you know about the city of Bristol? The most important thing to know is this: parking your car is fraught with danger.
‘Get it wrong, and your windscreen wiper will become a paper clip for a handwritten reprimand.
‘I’m a sucker for handwritten notes. Especially those of the passive-aggressive variety. All that rage and indelible ink. Pure communicative joy.
‘When I realised this was how Bristol’s car owners spoke to each other, I started photographing their work.’
A more polite person’s note said: ‘Please don’t park in the middle of a space for two cars’.
One irate local needed two piecesof A4 to vent their fury in a note which said: ‘THANK YOU FOR LEAVING ME… ENOUGH ROOM TO GET INTO MY BOOT… A***HOLE!’
This note below was written by one rather unhappy person on a Thursday…
