Homeowner Andrew Krasucky recently hid a tradesman’s keys for six hours!
The tradesman parked in front of Andrew’s drive despite there being neighbouring spaces available. It was never his intention to take the tradeperson’s keys though. Instead, he just went out to confront the tradesman. However, when he approached the van, he noticed the keys had been left in the ignition.
So, instead, Andrew decided to take the keys and lock the van behind him. He then headed over to a local cafe for a couple of hours. When he returned, he witnessed the driver searching everywhere for his keys.
Instead of handing the keys back over after seeing this though, Andrew, the homeowner, decided to do something a little different. He alternatively filmed the driver looking for them for a further four hours. He even began pressing the central locking system so the tradesperson became convinced that the keys were inside of the van.
Andrew describes why he did this: “it was really selfish and thoughtless of him, especially because he had the option of space. You can’t do that. It’s unacceptable.”
“It was all about punishing him. I don’t think he really understood what happened.”
“It was just one of life’s pleasures to punish him for ignoring other people, parking outside our house and not caring.”
He did eventually go outside and confront the tradesman though. He went on to ask him to move the van in which the driver apologised politely stating he could not find his keys. Andrew therefore eventually returned the keys, throwing them close to the van so the driver was unaware that he had stole them. However, when the driver did find them, he simply opened and closed the door and then left the van.
Shocked by the sight, Andrew went outside again questioning whether or not he was going to move the van. To that, the driver simply responded “oh yes, ok.”
Throughout the ordeal, Andrew was posting pictures on his social media pages. This prompted a wave of suggestions regarding what else he could do to the driver. However, Andrew felt that what he had done was more than enough. He stated: “you can’t go too far with punishment.”
“Afterwards, I thought if I were to do it again I would tell him not to park like that again or he won’t get his keys back. That’s what I would do next time.”
So what do you think? How would you punish a driver for parking in front of your drive? Or, have you had to park in front of someone else’s drive on a job? Let us know in the comments below.
