Kerb scrawling : Man starts blog of funny passive-aggressive notes left on windscreens of badly-parked cars
A blogger has created a funny gallery of passive-aggressive notes he spotted on badly parked cars.
Dan Mehmet noticed people who lived near his home in Bristol were partial to penning hateful messages for fellow drivers over their seemingly inconsiderate parking.
He started taking photos of the humorous notes and posted a collection of his favourites the website for his video creation company, Sparkol.
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 ASS AGAIN ‘DICK'”.
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.
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 entire bits of A4 to vent their fury in a note which said: “THANK YOU FOR LEAVING ME… ENOUGH ROOM TO GET INTO MY BOOT… ARSE HOLE!”
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.”
