A woman was left shocked when she found a note on her car windscreen saying her Skoda should be in a 'dump'.
The note said that Julia Laursen's car made the street 'look like Beirut', with neighbours suggesting she removes the vehicle from the otherwise respectable road.
Julia, 57, had innocently parked her car on the street in Shanklin, on the Isle of Wight, for an hour.
Taking the note to Facebook, she posted it to vent, not knowing it would go viral. But she says she does see the funny side of it.
Julia, a life and business coach, from the Isle of Wight, said: "I was just so shocked when I saw it.
"I mean who writes that? And the grammar was bad too. It's so snobby.
"I just felt like it was so outdated with people making fun of my Skoda. It was funny.
"The note just became more and more hilarious the more I looked at it."
The message was left last Tuesday (11 May), and the writer didn't hold back when it came to their feelings on her car.
It read: "I hope you don't mind, but would you kindly not park your vehicle on this road please?
"This is a nice respectable road and it now looks like Beirut.
"We don't drive such vehicles so perhaps you could in future park it somewhere more appropriate.
"Like the dump! Thanks."
Julia immediately posted on Facebook finding the message hilarious and was supported by locals.
"What the f**k," she wrote.
"Because my car isn't a show off Range Rover or some other 4x4 for popping the kids to and from school.
"Can all my island friends with slightly rougher, but much loved looking vehicles pop over to Littlestairs Road in Shanklin and give these t*****s a taste of what Beirut might look like."
Other locals and commenters were just as shocked as Julia by the note, with some just baffled by the rudeness of whoever wrote it.
But Julia has said that she now sees the funny side of the note.
She continued: "It's just so funny that they thought my little Skoda wasn't respectable.
"I think they need to see what a really awful car is.
"It was just such a funny note.
"But it's blown up so much - I've now been recognised as the 'Skoda lady.'
"The intention was never to harass the residents of this otherwise lovely street."
