If you’ve ever owned a house or lived in an apartment or had neighbors of any kind, you know they can be a crapshoot. Some are awesome and watch your house for you when you’re gone, bring in your mail, even let your dog out in a pinch – and others seem to get their jollies off making your life a living hell.

This family from Central Europe had the latter experience, mainly with their neighbors cutting a turn too close on a corner of their property and continuously running over their barriers.

Their son explains that they “live in a small private neighborhood, the neighbors are related to us more or less (distant relatives). Everybody here is a complete nut job. They were constantly arguing over decades before me or my brother were even born.”

Their property is a rectangle, with road surrounding it on two sides. The family had gone out of their way for decades to be reasonable in keeping up the road everyone in the neighborhood used, but they were repaid by people taking a turn too tight and knocking out their border “fencing” more times than they could count.

The original barrier was made out of bushes, trees, and a bit of metal – and people’s bad driving completely destroyed all of it, including bending the fence. According to the man’s father, they had to replace all of the landscaping and some of the fencing at least three times.

And this, my dear friends, is where the idea for revenge is born.

His dad started small, with “plastic barrels filled with rocks” on the property line. Over the course of 6 hours, 3 angry neighbors knocked, angry that the rocks scattered after they hit the barrels and damaged their cars, but they quickly realized they didn’t actually want to call the police (his father is a police officer).

After all, “everybody knew that little part of land was still our property.”

Over the course of a year, the neighbors hit the barrels so many times they were destroyed. Instead of replacing them, he decided to up his game.

“My dad was furious and he changed his petty revenge into a pro-revenge. He cut some wood to use it as a mold. He bought cement, sand, and metal poles. One peaceful afternoon my father and I cemented that whole part of the land and placed some lovely flowers on top. So when they hit the concrete they can smell our flowers of victory/defeat.”

It was a victory for the family, though the neighbors surely didn’t feel like celebrating.

“As we expected, 5 neighbors in total wrecked their cars on the new fence and nobody came knocking on the door.”

Ah. The sweet smell of revenge.

In the Balkans, I guess it smells like flowers.
