Man Wraps His Neighbour’s Entire Car In Cellophane After It Blocked His Driveway
Most drivers will be familiar with the frustration caused by someone blocking their driveway or parking space - but one exasperated man decided to take matters into his own hands.
Tobe Bailey, 49, from Margate, Kent, hilariously wrapped his neighbour's entire car in black cellophane after it blocked his driveway for a day and a half. That's one way to get your point across, eh?
After leaving a note placed on the windscreen requesting that the driver please remove their vehicle, Tobe went to extreme measures to deliver his message.
The blue Vauxhall Corsa was blocking his daughter's car from being able to get out and was parked there despite two clear signs instructing neighbour's not to.
Bricklayer and handyman Tobe said: "I live in a street with 26 houses and 24 parking spaces", adding that he and his wife had spent £2,000 installing a dropped curb and signs telling people not to park there but "people still do all the time".
Tobe went on to explain that "at least two or three times a week" the family would find "some idiot blocking us in".
He continued: "I came home from work one night and saw the car parked there. My daughter couldn't get her car out. I wrote a note and stuck it on the windscreen, telling the owner to move it."
But the next day, the offending car was still there, and Tobe had a brainwave.
"I'd just had a load of pallet wrap delivered and I thought" 'right' and wrapped it across the car. The owner soon came out after that. It was a young girl who had just moved in next door but one."

Fortunately, the owner took the prank in good humour and agreed not to block the space again.
"She was very apologetic," said Tobe. "She said 'very funny' and said she won't park there again."
He continued: "I'm not a nasty person, I just like to get my point across in a funny and harmless way.
"It only took her a few minutes to take the wrap off and her car was cleaner after because of it."
Tobe's wife Amanda and their children found the stunt hilarious.
The prankster brickie posted a picture of the car on his Facebook and had over 100 comments from friends who found it hysterical.
One wrote: "Love to see their face when they turn up...priceless!"
Another commented: "This is too funny, I can't think of anyone else who would do this."
Others included calling Tobe a "legend" and "brilliant".
We think it's safe to say that Tobe won't have his driveway blocked from now on.
