An angry motorist was branded a ‘psycho’ after covering a Lexus with white paint and eggs – because of the owner’s “sh*t parking”.
Alasdair Duncan spotted a parked car covered with wet paint and egg shells on the passenger door, bonnet and wing when he made his way to work on Monday morning.
The car, which was parked across a double parking bay, also had a note slapped on the windscreen demanding the driver “consider others” when he parked.
The parking position had selfishly blocked out a space that another car could utilise to park.
The 48-year-old support worker, who spotted the incident in Ladbrooke Grove in west London, slammed the antics as an “overreaction” to what he agreed was bad parking.
He believes he just missed the perpetrator as the paint on the car was still wet.
Dad-of-one Alasdair, from Lewisham, south-east London, said: “Even if he was parked like that it obviously doesn’t justify in any way that [reaction].
“It’s an overreaction but an overreaction to what? But it’s a bit nuts, isn’t it? Somebody is not very settled in themselves. It’s a weird thing.
“Perhaps they know the person, perhaps there’s some history. You don’t know if it’s the same person who left the note who [threw the paint] although we presume [it was].
“The paint was wet when I saw it, so I guess it was a fresh action. The paint had no sign of drying.
“I’m guessing it’s a water-based paint because it wasn’t super smelly. It’s possible that it had been there for just a couple of minutes.”
When Alasdair walked past the area again at around 1pm on the same day, the car was in the same spot with no owner in sight.
The 48-year-old then posted the incident to Facebook with the caption “sh*t parking in Ladbroke Grove gets paint splurge” – leaving social media users to question what had happened.
Alasdair’s post has since racked up more than 335 comments and 20 shares with one person even branding the vandal a ‘psychotic painter’.
