He Was Sick Of It
He was so upset. They had done it to him again. As he walked outside and realized this, he tried keeping a level head. He didn’t like losing his temper, but hated the fact that he had to deal with this issue after making every attempt to find a peaceful resolution. But it was obvious diplomacy wasn’t going to solve this situation. So, he came up with an idea that made him famous on the internet.
He Tried To Be A Nice Guy
One of the perks of living in a rural community is that you get to coexist peacefully with your neighbors. Well, that’s what Davao Bedekovic initially thought. Bedekovic enjoyed living in the sparsely populated village of Jakusevec in Zagreb, Croatia. But unfortunately, his neighbors had really started ticking him off. It shouldn’t have been this way, and he did his best to let it slide. Eventually, he realized he couldn’t ignore the situation.
Bedekovic owned a field near the village center. As a farmer, he was glad to see the town’s population of 2,000 was growing. This meant more business. In fact, a market had recently opened up near his farmhouse. He was ecstatic about this because it was only a five-minute walk. This would make grocery shopping a lot easier. But he never realized the new shopping center was going to have such a negative effect on his life.
Issues With Parking
The new market didn’t have an area designated specifically for parking. And since there were several other buildings, shoppers started parking across the street to walk over to the market. But this was only a temporary fix. The market had attracted tons of customers and there wasn’t enough parking to accommodate everyone. So, some of the patrons came up with the perfect solution, but they never thought twice about how their actions would affect others.
Get Off My Land
Before long, folks started parking on Bedekovic’s property, so they could go shopping at the new market. At first, he didn’t mind. It was only a couple of cars. But as the weeks passed, word spread. Soon, everyone was using Bedekovic’s field as a public parking lot. The weekends were the worst. There were so many cars that he couldn’t do any fieldwork. So, he decided to put his foot down.
