A paranoid driver was pranked by his workmates after parking his car in a new spot near his office.
Daniel Prutton decided to try his luck at a new spot to leave his black VW Polo.
It was outside a pub and there were no double yellow lines.
Throughout the day he stated that he had been worrying about getting a parking ticket.
After leaving work at the end of the day, Daniel was shocked to see a little, yellow fine on the windscreen.
He picked up the penalty charge and opened it – revealing the hilarious message from his co-workers calling him a “k*ob head”.
The team leader, for the recruitment agency Randstad in Birmingham, said: “I parked in a bit of a dodgy spot.
“We were having a bit of banter in the office all day about whether or not I’d get a ticket.
“Mostly at my expense.
“I panicked about whether or not I should just risk it or move it.
“I was up and down like a yoyo checking if I had a ticket yet.
“But there was nothing all day.”
Daniel, 31, – who left his hatchback in Edmund Street, in the city centre – added: “However, I walked out the office at the close of play to find this.
“Turns out you can park there, just don’t tell your mates.
“Who needs enemies eh?”
