An annoyed homeowner in England struck back last week.
For ten years Julie has been regularly inconvenienced by drivers leaving their cars on her property in Crowborough, East Sussex, where she lives opposite the train station in Farningham Road.
Commuters can pay a daily rate of £4.40, a weekly rate of £19, a monthly rate of £69 or an annual rate of £646 to park at the station.
Earlier this month Julie had been due to have gravel laid on her drive - but when workmen arrived to do the job they found a car had been left in the way, preventing the work from being carried out.
So, spotting her chance to retaliate, Julie ordered the workmen to block the errant car in with a ton of gravel.
And, to top it off, she stuck a trowel in the gravel with a note attached saying: "Happy digging, at least it's not raining."
The car was blocked in for two days before the owner was able to move it.

I've experienced the same thoughtlessness from motorists. Several decades ago I owned an apartment in Berea, a suburb of Johannesburg in South Africa. My parking spot in the basement garage had a private entrance, with a ramp leading down to it. I frequently found partygoers would simply park on my ramp on Friday and Saturday evenings, blocking it, when they found the street parking already filled. I used to call our building's towing service and have their vehicles hauled away, usually drawing anger and profanity from the owner(s) when they returned to find their vehicles gone. One even went so far as to hurl a beer bottle at my car, visible through the barred gates in the garage. (Fortunately it hit and shattered on the gate, not my car.) Not one of them ever thought to apologize for blocking my entrance - or bothered to ask for permission to park there, for that matter.
I have a fairly visceral reaction to thoughtless, rude, inconsiderate motorists to this day.
