It is the confrontation you have all been waiting for. The moment a white van man meets a bailiff. Everybody looked on in anticipation.
“The summer of rage is upon us,” said one onlooker as the burly bailiff looked mean and keen and ready for a ruck.
“OH NO!” said another onlooker as they spotted the white van. “This is going to get ugly,” they went on to add.
“Is this going to be on Can’t Pay, Take It Away?” asked another onlooker
“No. I think it will be on that new programme…Van Drivers Gone Wild,” replied another bystander.
Everybody got ready for fists flying and necks cracking. Rage, Anger and Discontent, all rolled into one.
But then…everybody ended up disappointed.
There was no confrontation and there was no street battle.
However, the White Van Man did get one up on the Bailiff, and he didn’t even have to get out of his van.
Could it be that our very own van white man is becoming smarter. Instead of seeing red and going instantly after the bailiff, the white van man made a simple phone call to give the bailiff what onlookers called…
“A taste of his own medicine.”
What happened here is the bailiff was on the street to do an eviction (nothing to do with the white van man).
But the bailiff decided it was ok to park in front of the drive of the white van, blocking it in.
“You can’t park there,” said the white van man from inside his van.”
“I can do what I want…I’m a bailiff!”
Trapped inside his drive like a lion in a cage, you would have expected fireworks at this moment. But no…a simple phone call led to something that nobody expected.
The Police came around and CLAMPED THE BAILIFF!!
Why? Because the white van man had a number of disabled stickers in his back window, which meant the bailiff had no right to park there.
While the bailiff was off doing an enforcement elsewhere on the street, his own van was being clamped.
So that is White Van Man 1 – Bailiff 0 – and the white van man didn’t even need to get out of his van.
Instead he sat patiently in his van and waited for the clamper to arrive. No doubt on his smartphone and visiting CVI to pass the time. Reading our blog posts and getting cheap van insurance from our 3 minute form.
