Neighbor's Land-Grabby Attitude Leaves Him With Missing Vehicles and A Ruined Yard

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. This neighbor was illegally extending his property line into protected land and got nailed for it. Had he been nicer to his neighbors, he may not have been completely screwed, but hey, he flew too close to the sun. Sometimes when people take up too much space, the universe calls on someone to mess with them, like this guy who got petty revenge on a selfish parker with a fake note.

    Text - r/MaliciousCompliance Posted by u/MLC2001 S 2 18 hours ago Neighbor tells Gramps he should "mind his own damn business'" That advice costs neighbor most of his yard and a car. oC L Gramps had just moved into a retirement park with a lot that backed up to county land that was a nature preserve. His backyard was basically non-existent, but he didn't mind as he got to look out over the preserve, however he did marvel at how his next door neighbor's backyard extended a good 8ft past his, givi

    Text - Gramps tried to be friendly with all his new neighbors, exchanging phone numbers and the like, and one day he noticed the next door neighbor was putting down expensive pavers that extended from his back door all the way to the old fence posts that designated the preserve boundary. Gramps watched the neighbor yank the three rickety fence posts out of the ground and move them back an extra two feet into the preserve before pounding them back in, then

    Text - started to clear the land, intending to gain himself more area for his pavers. Gramps used to work for the national park services as a young lad, so he thought he had better warn his neighbor of the consequences of his actions, so he heads out back for a little chat. Neighbor is immediately defensive and before Gramps says much, neighbor tells him "you're new here, I've been here 10 years" and to "mind your own damn business." Gramps decides not to press the issue.

    Text - Nothing happens that year, but the following year when most of the park emptied out to head north for the summer the county comes by to check on the preserve. Gramps notices them going back and forth behind his neighbor's house, the workers are pulling out maps and taking photos and making phone calls and soon more guys show up. Turns out neighbor has moved the posts several times over the years, and in reality his backyard is supposed to be even smaller than Gramp's backyard! To make it

    Text - Gramps goes over to read it, and it states that neighbor was in violation of encroaching onto protected lands, he has 30 days to move his car, tear up the pavers and pay a fine of $11,000 (because of damage to endangered species who inhabit the protected lands, as well as trespassing fees). Failure to do so within 30 days will result in golf cart & car being towed and inmpounded, pavers will be dug up and carted off at neighbor's expense and the fine will increased for every additional da

    Text - 30 days comes and goes, so a week after that Gramps has quite the show as first the car and cart were towed, pavers were dug up and hauled off, and the old fence posts and ropes were replaced with metal posts embedded into buried cement bases, connected by steel cables. Whole process took several weeks to finish, but the preserve looked a lot more legit when they were done. A few solar cameras were installed so the county could monitor the wildlife (and encroachers) remotely, meanwhile mo

    Text - By November the snowbirds were flooding back into the park, including neighbor. That was Gramps' 2nd show of the summer as neighbor reads all the notices, digging down until he reads the first one, then runs out back and starts screaming and cussing up a storm before running back to his car to dig out his cell phone so he can call the county to find out where his car and golf cart were. Gramps stays indoors to avoid the guy as he is frantically trying to unload his car, turn on his water

    Text - Three days later neighbor catches Gramps outside and asks if he was here when the county "stole his car and destroyed his backyard" Gramps said he was, and neighbor says "well why didn't you call me when you saw them putting notices on my door? You had my number up north!" Gramps said he had thought about doing that, but figured neighbor would prefer him to "mind his own damn business", so he decided against it
