Every one of us knew that there would be people who thought that they could do anything they wanted and even got away with it. Most of the time, they were in the wrong, although there could be times that they did not know that what they were doing was incorrect but were just too stubborn to have things go their way. For them, they had the mindset that things would always go their way.
However, there would be instances where that would not be the case. In this article, we decided to show an example of revenge that tasted good. The man knew back then that he would be busy throughout the entire day. It was challenging moving construction materials uphill, and there was one more situation he had to solve. There was one woman who did not listen when he asked for the car to be moved.
A Different Project
The man did think about calling the police. However, he believed that it would just be a waste of time. And yet, the woman kept on being haughty as she dismissed the man’s request. It was why the crazy genius came up with a superb idea. It was something that would make the woman regret her actions.
The man was hired to be the foreman in constructing a house. We could say that he was already an expert in this type of work. And yet, this project was a bit different from his other jobs because the location of the house would be on top of a hill.
Most Complied Quickly
There was only one way they could reach the top, and it was by hiking up the 250-ft footpath. It made their work complex, especially when it came to moving the materials needed for the construction. Thankfully, everything had an upside.
A Mom Waiting For Her Child
There were two reserved parking places for the construction project on the street at the foot of the hill. Two official signs that said, “No Parking,” had been put up to stop anyone from parking their car at the designated places.
Still Wouldn’t Move
It was too bad that the official No Parking signs did not stop everyone from illegally parking on the spaces. There was an elementary school half a block from the reserved parking areas, and it was not long before the foreman realized that other parents occasionally parked in the spots.
A Brilliant Idea
And yet, the foreman was not that bothered about it except for one particular day. The man let it go whenever he saw that the reserved parking spots were occupied as long as he and his team did not need to use them.
And in times when the areas were occupied at the time when he needed them, he would just respectfully request that the driver leave, and most of them listened and immediately left the premises. And yet, there was one specific day when a lumber delivery driver contacted the foreman to let him know that he was on his way to the venue.
Calling The Authorities
The foreman decided to ensure that the reserved parking places were available, and he saw that one of the reserved spots had been used by someone else. When he came closer, he saw a woman sitting in the driver’s seat.
Her Ineffectual Rage
The foreman assumed that she was there because she was waiting for her kid to come out of school. The man slowly approached the woman, and courteously asked her to leave the parking spot.
No Backing Down
The woman just jeered at the foreman and said, “I’ll just be a few minutes, and your truck isn’t here, take a chill pill dude.” The foreman did not expect the rude response from the woman, and then, the lumber delivery truck arrived.
She Was Livid
And since the delivery truck had already arrived, the foreman thought that the woman would voluntarily leave the spot. And yet, she simply closed her window and blatantly ignored the foreman. He waved at her window to get her attention, and the woman opened her window partly and yelled, “WHAT?”
Per Company Policy
The foreman decided to be firm in his instruction. He told the woman that the truck would need the parking space. The woman dismissed him and said, “Can’t you guys just unload around me? Jesus, it’s not that hard.” The foreman was utterly speechless when he heard the words that came out of her mouth.
Showing Her Anger
The foreman did not expect her to be that rude, but it was the reason he decided to use his wits. He approached the lumber delivery truck driver and asked him to park the vehicle parallel to the idling car. He emphasized to come as close as possible.
A Burst Of Rage
The delivery truck driver immediately understood what the foreman was asking from him. The woman was about to get what she asked for. There was a port-a-potty behind the woman’s car. There was also another parked car beside the two exclusive parking areas.
The lumber delivery truck was parked on her side. It meant that the idling car had been boxed beside the curb. It was a good thing that the woman failed to realize what was happening because she was busy trying to avoid and ignore the construction workers even though it was her fault that they had been forced to park in an area that could cause a traffic jam.
Failed Attempt To Escape
The foreman made sure to do one more thing. The man hurriedly called the police parking enforcement officers to tell them about the issue. The foreman wrote, “At this point in time I wasn’t trying to get her in trouble, I just wanted a record of why we were blocking part of the street, so we don’t get in trouble with the city.”
Lying To The Police Officer
The foreman heard the traffic enforcer say that she would arrive at the place within 30 minutes, but it was not quick enough before all hell broke loose when the woman’s child came out of the school’s premises. The woman attempted to get out of her car to get her son but realized that she could barely open her car door.
The foreman thought that the woman would start to understand the mess she had been involved in because of her stubbornness and that she would try to make things right. And yet, the foreman had been wrong because she glared at him as if everything had been his fault.
The woman’s fruitless rage might have been humorous if she had not done what she did next. The woman was seriously fuming with anger. She uncomfortably clambered to the passenger’s seat and fumbled out of her vehicle to place her child at the back of the car.
Afterwards, the woman approached the foreman and the lumber delivery truck driver. The two men tried their best not to laugh. The woman had started to realize that the two would not back down in this situation.
Surveying The Scene
The woman angrily observed the place. There was a car in front of hers, a porta-potty of the workers was behind her car, there was an enormous car to her left, and last but not least, there was a curb to her right. The woman started to be enraged and yelled, “I’m in a big hurry, you need to move your truck right now so I can go.”
And yet, the lumber delivery truck driver’s response shook her core. The driver said, “Ma’am in order to unload the lumber on the truck, we had to unstrap it, and per our company policy, I’m not allowed to move the truck with any unsecured load on it.” The driver tried not to laugh as he explained.
Nevertheless, both the driver and the foreman could not have guessed the spectacle that would come next. The fuming woman began to shout curses at the truck driver and yelled, “I have somewhere to be!”
Nonetheless, the woman had no clue that the traffic enforcer who had spoken to the foreman’s initial call was already at the scene just behind the track. The foreman peacefully and sweetly responded to the woman who kept shouting at them.
The woman grew even more annoyed because of his mocking reply. The foreman jokingly advised the woman, “Can’t you just pull out around it? It’s not that hard.” After the woman cursed at him, she stomped back to her car and stumbled her way through the passenger’s seat.
The traffic enforcer had started to approach the foreman and the delivery truck driver when suddenly, the woman put her car in reverse and stepped on the gas. She spun her wheels and knocked down the port-a-potty that was behind her car. Things did not end there.
The woman attempted to drive over the actual sidewalk and rushed forward frantically. The three witnesses could not believe what was happening. Their smiles turned to confusion when the woman mounted the curb of the path.
The three onlookers had begun to wonder what on earth she was doing. The woman was unable to escape from being boxed in because she had been stuck on the curb. It was not the end of her misfortunes.
The traffic enforcer calmly approached the woman and instructed her to step out of the vehicle. When she was out of the car, the police officer handcuffed her and made her sit on the sidewalk while waiting for her backup. And yet, the woman was not done being an awful person.
The woman was sure that she was now in big trouble and tried to turn things around. She even lied to the police officer and said that the foreman had not asked her to move from her spot and was even reassured that she could stay in the reserved area.
Not Having It
Nonetheless, the traffic enforcer did not listen to her and told the woman that she was already aware of the situation. The foreman had previously called her before her arrival. The police officer also mentioned that she already knew what exactly happened and how the women stubbornly refused to move out of the parking spot.
The woman was going to meet her impending doom. The foreman remembered, “While myself and the driver are giving a report to the second officer, my guys finish moving the remainder of the lumber and the driver finishes his statement and takes off to go back to the yard.”
The foreman continued, “By the end of the ordeal, she was arrested, charged with reckless driving, destruction of property, (the porta-potty), and Driving on a Suspended License.” The woman’s vehicle was towed.
The grandmother of the child arrived to pick him up because the woman had been taken to jail. The foreman did not expect her to follow his advice and said, “I never expected her to actually heed my advice to “Just pull out around it.” But I think next time she’ll probably think twice about parking in a tow-away zone if she ever gets a license again.”
We could learn a valuable lesson from the story. It would be great if schools dissuaded parents from doing stuff like this whenever they picked up their kids. Hopefully, the school in the article would start to do the same.
We could all relate to feeling a painful read whenever we came across something suspenseful, and the main characters made the wrong choices. It was like having a second-hand embarrassment as we watched it happen.
We could not have guessed what the ending of the story would have been. However, it might not have been so surprising to some that the woman ended up having a suspended license. Nevertheless, we concluded that it did not change the fact that it spiced up the story a little.
Many people commented on the story and said how good it was. Most of us would like to listen to a story about a terrible person who had to face the adverse effects of his or her wrong decisions in life.
All of us would agree that the woman in the story did not handle the situation appropriately. It might be difficult for us to understand what she could have been thinking when she acted rudely to the people around her. Maybe she felt that she would be able to get away with anything.
There would be other similar stories to the one we had just told. There was another woman who resided in Ohio who shared the same ideas as the woman in the previous story. The woman from Ohio thought of something when she came across a school bus that she had to stop behind.
Shena Hardin thought that she was great at being sneaky and decided not to stop behind the school bus. Instead, she chose to avoid the waiting by mounting up the curb on the sidewalk. Shena Hardin did this while the bus was unloading the children, and it was on the same path that she climbed on.
Nevertheless, the entire scenario had been caught on cam. It turned out that Shena Hardin had already done these multiple times in the past. It was why she had been taken to the police station.
Going To Court
Afterwards, the court trial started. Shena Hardin showed up in court and showed no regret for her terrible actions. It went to the point where Shena laughed during her court appearances. Because of this, one mother decided to speak up about her issues with Shena Hardin. Lisa Kelley had a 9-year-old daughter who also boarded that bus.
Lisa Kelley said, “She’s an idiot, just like her sign says. She did this almost every day last year. She won’t stop laughing. She’s not remorseful, she laughed at every court appearance. She’s still laughing, so she needs to be humiliated like this.” We started to grow curious at the mention of the word sign.
The judge ordered Shena Hardin’s driver’s license to be suspended for one month after being in court. Shena Hardin also had to pay $250 in court costs, and it did not end there. The judge had other things in mind for Shena Hardin.
Teaching A Lesson
The judge ordered Shena Hardin to hold up a sign that said, “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.” The judge did this to teach her a lesson. She had to do this on the corner where the children stood while waiting for the school bus.
Shena Hardin was required to stand on the corner holding up the sign for one hour on Tuesday. She also had to do the same on Wednesday to show everyone her wrongdoings. What made things worse for Shena was that it was freezing 34 degrees cold outside.
Shena Hardin bundled up against the cold as she held the sign outside. The woman puffed a cigarette and made sure to avoid comments from the people who walked. Some cars honked at her as they passed by. Shena Hardin just shut up.
There was one man named Bill who worked nearby and saw the whole thing. The man asked and yelled at Shena Hardin, “Why do you hate kids? How else are you going to stop her from doing it again? She really didn’t show remorse for her action after being caught, so you’ve got to try something.”
