48-year-old Julie Geue from Crowborough in East Sussex, England, was fed up with people constantly parking their cars in her driveway.

She had had enough when a motorist parked his silver-gray car in such a way that she couldn't use her own driveway.

Since her driveway was due for a new layer of gravel, Julie decided to take matters into her own hands. She arranged for the construction company to place bags of gravel behind the parked car, effectively blocking it in.

She also left a note for the inconsiderate driver, saying, "Enjoy digging. At least it's not raining."

After consulting the public, it was decided by a vote that the driver would have to dig his way to freedom. Julie also warned the driver to be aware of the surveillance camera and to smile while working.

When the driver returned to retrieve his car, he was not as amused as Julie's messages to him had been. Julie later wrote on Facebook,

"The offender in this case claims to have made an error in confusion over which house he should park in front of. Unfortunately, after putting up with lazy, disgusting, rude (often threatening) people, I don't care whether it's an honest mistake or not."

Julie further explained that at least three times a week, she finds herself stuck in the middle of the road with a massive queue behind her because people have parked in her driveway.

"I live opposite the station because it's convenient... FOR ME. I have a driveway that can accommodate four cars because it's convenient for me. Not so that lazy slobs can park for free," she added.

The photos of her revenge have been shared over 5,000 times.
