A recent tale of an enigmatic car park intruder has surfaced, initially provoking frustration in the parking space’s rightful owner. However, a surprising twist awaited them as they unfolded a note left behind.

This unusual incident came to light when a user on Xiaohongshu, often referred to as the Chinese Instagram equivalent, reported the intrusion after discovering their parking spot occupied by an unauthorised vehicle.

The audacious culprit had left behind a casual note, boldly declaring their intention to commandeer the parking space for the entire day. Understandably, the owner was initially vexed by the audacity of the act, as their cherished spot had been taken without any prior notice. Yet, the narrative took an unexpected turn as they removed the note, revealing an unexpected gift left by the miscreant.

The note, penned with surprising politeness, said…

“I have a joyful family event and will need to use your parking space for the day. Thank you.” It was adorned with a cheerful smiley face.

Though the courteous tone of the message did little to appease the initial anger of the parking space owner, the discovery of two packets of cigarettes and a red envelope containing 200 yuan (1,000 baht) as compensation had a magically soothing effect, promptly dispelling the initial irritation.

“The audacious parking of their car in my spot did stir my initial anger. However, as soon as I opened that envelope, I found myself eagerly anticipating their return next time.”

The post quickly made waves among netizens, triggering a range of reactions. Many expressed their understanding and solidarity.

“Whatever celebrations your household enjoys, it’s none of my concern. Oh, congratulations!”

Some even offered suggestions, proposing that the poster return the envelope to the car owner, thus potentially laying the foundation for a harmonious neighbourly relationship and perhaps even the prospect of sharing a grand meal.
