Recently, Reddit user TboneXXIV shared a story of persistence. One dude persistently parked his trailer truck on his parents’ pecan droves and they persistently tried to stop him.
TboneXXIV explained that the trespass parking could’ve caused thousands of dollars worth of damage but the dude wasn’t willing to cooperate. It suited his laziness.
For multiple reasons — all described in the story — the landowners were having a hard time getting the dude off their property. However, with the help of an understanding local sheriff, they made his boss pay them a hefty amount of $7,800. All of which was deducted from the dude’s payroll. Needless to say, it worked. Continue scrolling to learn how they devised (and executed!) the brilliant revenge plan.

TboneXXIV said their parents have been growing pecans as a primary occupation since the early 1990’s and this story took place in 1996.
“This is the only incident of repeat trespass parking they have had,” they told Bored Panda. “All other incidents over the years have mostly involved petty theft.”
Since quite a bit of time has passed after the whole ordeal, TboneXXIV agreed to share a few updates on the lives of the main characters of our story. The sheriff, for example, has always been a friendly guy, but definitely political. “He wanted to do the job, but also be popular so he didn’t like to make arrests unless they would result in a definite conviction,” TboneXXIV explained. “He was in office there for about 20 years and now serves on the county board instead.”
As for the Dude, he still drives a truck for the same employer. “As is with most rural communities, even when you aren’t on speaking terms with someone you hear about them,” TboneXXIV said, adding that their family simply can’t escape him. “His son got married to my cousin. They divorced after a couple of years but I would hear bits of information secondhand all along. That’s how I knew his boss took the money out of his checks until it was paid back. Dude complained about that every 2 weeks to his family but got a lot of ‘We told you not to do that. Serves you right!’ in response.”
Einstein once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. So I guess the Dude wasn’t insane to think he would keep getting away with parking his trailer truck on the pecan droves; he was just optimistic. However, he shouldn’t have underestimated the lengths a person can go to when taking revenge. After all, it’s the only justifiable form of kicking someone in their nut sack.
