The Story Begins

Meet our storyteller, a man (OP) living on a quiet street on the outskirts of suburbia.

He’s a friendly guy who gets along with his neighbors, but there’s one thing that’s been bothering him lately: the lazy construction workers hired by the neighbor opposite.

The Neighborhood Needs Renovation

His neighborhood is full of houses that were built or renovated during the early to mid-2000s.

Lately, there have been more work trucks parked around due to some age-related renovations and whatnot.

Time Took Its Toll

That’s why it was no surprise when the neighbor opposite his home decided it was time to give his house a re-do.

The place was starting to look a bit rough around the edges; he’d bought it to rent out, and 15 years of tenants will leave its scars.

He’d Hired a Terrible Crew

This would not have been a story, except that the company hired by the neighbor has the laziest crew imaginable! They cannot stand walking 25 yards, even in the low 60s F (~18C).

So instead, they park their trucks right in front of and opposite our storyteller’s house, making it impossible for him to get in and out of his driveway unless you are on a bike or a small car.

They Ignore Any Requests

Despite his requests to park elsewhere, the workers paid no attention and continued to park their “man-sized” pickup trucks in front of his house.

Even the owner of the house couldn’t do much to control the situation, as he lived 60-70 miles away. Complaints to the police also proved futile as it was a private road.

He Was at His Wits End

He was at his wit’s end…until he had an idea. Three massive trees line the front of his property, with branches hanging well over the street.

OP knew that birds love to perch in trees, so he decided to turn his front yard into a bird paradise.

He did some research on the types of birds that are around at this time of year and what would lure them.

Then he went out and bought tons of bird feeders and the tools to get them safely into the trees.

He thinks he had around 100 of them, and it took him the whole day on Friday to put them all up!

The next day, OP noticed that more birds had flocked to his property, but it was nothing out of the ordinary as he usually sees many birds chirping in late March.

The Sound Was Incredible

However, things took a turn for the better when the trucks returned and parked in their usual anti-social spots somewhere around 8 am on Monday.

The trees filled up with birds around 9 to 10 am and started gorging themselves on the now insane amounts of food.

When OP opened a window, a cacophony of biblical proportions greeted him.

He Was Watching From His House

He was in his kitchen watching as the guys came to their trucks for lunch at 1 pm. He heard their swearing clearly through closed windows.

When he took a peek, he saw the birds had absolutely covered their trucks in bird p00p!

Not just a little bit, but literally, absolutely covered. The hood, roof, truck bed, equipment in the bed, windshield, mirrors, and door handles; the bird poop covered everything! It was horrifically awesome!

How Gross!

The workers had to clean for an hour just to drive their trucks, as the bird p00p had covered the windows, making them unable to see anything!

He’s writing this on a Wednesday, two days later, and their trucks are now parked far away. But driving past, you can still see that there are still signs of Monday’s carnage on them!

He Got Away With It

Luckily, apart from some nasty looks, no one has said a word. Not one word. It’s petty, but it’s revenge, and it’s made OP feel very satisfied.

Some Life Lessons

So what can we learn from this story? First, problems can have natural solutions if you’re willing to think outside the box.

Second, revenge doesn’t always have to involve physical harm or aggression. Sometimes, a little bit of pettiness can go a long way. It might not be the most mature solution, but it worked.

And finally, birds are pretty awesome creatures that can bring a little bit of joy into our lives.

A Future Birdwatcher

As for our storyteller, he’s happy to have his driveway back and to see the birds enjoying their new feeding station. He might even become a full-fledged bird person in the future.

Who knows? Maybe he’ll start wearing a birdwatcher’s hat and carrying around binoculars!
