Today's award goes to the Worcestershire County Council in England.
Residents on the quiet square watched in disbelief as workmen dug up 300ft of road and laid fresh Tarmac - but left a neat, rectangular island around one car.
The owner of a Fiat Punto which was left on St George's Square in Worcester had failed to move the car before the scheduled work began.
One resident said: 'It's utter madness. I couldn't believe the workmen started resurfacing the road around the car. When the car is finally moved the road will look ridiculous.'
Worcestershire County Council had told people in the area last week that it would take two days to re-lay the road which was last done 25 years ago.
When workmen showed up to start the job, they discovered one car hadn't been moved. They proceeded to dig up the road, leaving a 10ft by 6ft rectangular island around the car.

Why they couldn't simply tow the damn car before starting to resurface the road is beyond me . . .
Oh, well. Your taxes at work!
