Ah, NIMBYs, how we like to give you a taste of your own medicine. For a driver in the Land of Tulips, he was able to dish out some sweet revenge to someone who questioned why he was there. He had a package for you, silly, now walk!
Never let you mouth overload your backside, or your wheelbarrow
For today’s tale, we go to the r/MaliciousCompliance Reddit page, and find a trucker reminiscing on a day he taught the neighborhood NIMBY a lesson in manners. This was one of those times you should have asked first before letting your yapper get you into some trouble.
u/THNeilsen was delivering a rather bulky trampoline to a residence in an unnamed city. He works for a LTL delivery company, similar to DHL, but one specialized in large unit delivery packages.
Being in an urban area, routes were tight; he had to back into the housing area from the street. Well, the neighborhood NIMBY was watching and came out screaming.
“I was the biggest idiot on this earth!” “How the hell could I even think of going in there with a semi?” “I could have run over all the kids in the neighborhood!” “I had absolutely no valid reason for being there and could get the hell out of there right away!”
Those were some of the quotes the man screamed and cussed at the driver. When the driver explained he was there to deliver to an address on the street, it was the home of the very same man who was being quite disrespectful. Time for vengeance!
Hope you got a back as strong as your disrespect
When the NIMBY asked the driver to “just set it down over there,” the driver’s response was quite proper. “No sir, you told me I shouldn’t be here, so I suggest you get a wheelbarrow and meet me at the end of the street.”
“The street” the driver had expertly backed down was nearly a half a mile long, and uphill on a 4% to 5% grade. The trampoline weighed about 130 pounds.
The incident concluded without further words from the “thankful customer” and the driver went on his merry way.
