Tauranga man left bamboozled after being threatened by mystery note on his car windscreen

a bit bloody extreme if you ask me.

A Tauranga man was left absolutely stumped after receiving a mysterious suspicious-looking business card whacked on his car windscreen with a warning.

The printed card called out the resident for his supposed bad parking and threatened to key his vehicle - A bit extreme if you ask me.

The front of the card read: “You. Yes, you. You park badly and you should feel bad. Stop. Use the bus, get a bike, or get lessons. Preferably all three.”

Flip it over and you see: “Next time you will be keyed. Thank you.”

Aside from hitting him right in the parking ego, the card seemed completely unnecessary to the accused “badly” parked driver.

Posting pics of his ride to a Turanga community Reddit page, the man asked: "Who’s the a-hole giving these out? And can anyone figure out what the person thought was wrong with my parking?"

Now, the jury of online commenters weighed in. 

Some thought Tauranga had a secret society of parking vigilantes.

“It screams Tauranga behaviour,” one commenter wrote.

Another said: “You would have to be demented to think keying someone's car is a proportional response to bad parking.”

While many couldn’t fault the parking job, others argued the fella might've been too cosy with the pavement or not acing the between-the-lines game.

One person said: “You parked way too close to the curb!! That's why you got it…”

“It may have bothered whoever it was that the car wasn't within the lines,” another wrote.

A third added: “The only issue I can think of is the park is it's a little close to the curb and maybe they're mad about the mirror sticking out onto the sidewalk.”

Harsh or not? You decide.
