A frustrated driver who left a handwritten note on a fellow car owner’s windscreen has been criticised for being “passive aggressive.”
The note was left by a man from Bondi, Australia, who was so annoyed that a motorist had parked across two spaces.
However the message that asked the “selfish” driver to “learn how to drive” didn’t go down well with people on social media.
According to news.com.au the note reads: “Free parking lesson. Call 1800 Car Lesson.”
It also featured the sarcastic hashtag “learn how to drive like a champ” along with “get some much-needed skills” and “this is a really, really bad attempt”.
The driver shared a snap of the note he wrote to the Bondi Local Loop Facebook page, which has more than 100,000 members.
The post included a picture of the car in question, as well as an image of the spot holding two cars and a close up of the note.
“If your (sic) embarrassed about your lack of driving skills don’t hide in shame call me and I can give you all the verbal motivation you need,” the caption read.
“Don’t park like this pelican did and take up two spots for one car.”
While a number of people agreed that the motorist should have parked in a better position, others said there could have been a reason.
One person said: “I think in most cases you’ll find they initially parked in front of 1 or 2 motorcycle/scooters who have since left … you gotta chill.”
Another added: “This annoys me too but leaving a long passive aggressive note (attempting to be witty) and then boasting about it online isn’t anything to be proud of.”
But there were a few people who came to his defence, branding the note as a “great idea.”
“OMG I feel this on a spiritual level,” said another.
