He Asked a Policeman to Move His Car as It Was Blocking His Driveway, but He Refused – Was the Karma the Policeman Received Justified?

A man worked early morning shifts at a fast food restaurant, starting at 5 a.m. His workplace had a somewhat lenient policy regarding punctuality for the opening shift, as long as employees were ready to work when they arrived.

Blocked Driveway Incident

One morning, as he was leaving for work at around 4:45 a.m., the man discovered that a local police officer had pulled someone over and was blocking his driveway. The man had encountered similar situations before but usually in the afternoon. He usually politely asked officers to adjust their position slightly to allow him to exit or enter his driveway.

A Surprising Response

This time, however, the police officer was not accommodating. He informed the man angrily that they would have to wait until he had finished his business.

Frustrated by the delay, the man took a picture of the police car, sent it to his manager, and explained why he would be late.

A 40-Minute Delay

The man had to wait for about 40 minutes before the police officer finally moved his car. In a hurry, the man rushed to work and arrived just 15 minutes before the restaurant was scheduled to open.

He hurriedly prepared for the opening, attempting to complete his usual 50-minute routine in just 15 minutes, including brewing tea, fetching ice, and almost forgetting to brew coffee.

The Confrontation

When the restaurant opened, the first customers were a group of local police officers led by the captain. It appeared that they were about to do a shift change, and one of the officers in the group was the one who had blocked the man’s driveway.

What happened next was highly ironic: “The Captain orders coffee, and I regretfully inform him that there’s a five-minute wait on coffee because I got to work extremely late”, the man wrote. Captain asked why, so I pulled out my phone and explained that one of his officers blocked my driveway for 45 minutes for a routine traffic stop.” 

Consequences For The Officer

In response to the man’s explanation and showing of the picture on their phone, the Captain reprimanded the officer who had blocked the driveway in front of his colleagues. He emphasized that “nothing short of a life or death emergency should block his driveway if it will interfere with me getting my morning coffee.”

Following this incident, the man reported that his driveway was never blocked again, and the Captain consistently received his coffee at 6 a.m. without any further interruptions.

Sharing His Story

Proud of getting revenge against the rude policeman, the man rushed to an online forum to share his story. The internet approved, and a lot of humor followed: “I’d like a coffee please? And… can you serve up some just desserts with that?”, laughed one person.

Many readers were impressed with the sheer coincidence that allowed this story to exist. “That’s the sort of situation you pray to be a part of”, praised one. “Some bored prankster god kissed you on the forehead that day.”

Disheartening Intentions

Whilst many readers praised the policeman for disciplining his colleague, one commenter pointed out that his motivation behind the scolding shouldn’t be forgotten. “That was some great petty revenge and I’m sure it felt validating. Although it is disheartening that the Captain was only upset because it inconvenienced him, not that it could have potentially cost you your job.”

Compliments From The Police

Coincidentally, a policeman chimed in to congratulate the man. “First line police supervisor here. You handled this perfectly. I’ve instructed my officers not to block driveways if they can avoid it, and they are to move their cruisers as soon as it is safe to do so. If an officer has time to be rude to you when you asked to be able to leave, they had time to move their car ten feet.”
