> A man in China’s Zhejiang province was so upset that someone took his parking space that he installed eight poles around the offender’s car to prevent him from leaving, China Press also reported.

Known only as Yu, the man was incensed when he returned home one day to find that his rented parking space had been occupied by another car.

He called the driver six times in two hours, requesting him to move his car. However, the offender refused to budge and was adamant that the space was for public parking.

When the car was still not removed the next day, Yu hired workers to install parking poles around the car to prevent the owner from exiting the place.

Yu said that the car would be held there until he received an apology from its owner.
