One upset man in Washington state has taken the feud with his neighbor to a new level of petty.
According to dailymail.co.uk:
Brian Juel and his neighbors Cindy and Brian Zechenelly have apparently not seen eye-to-eye in years. The beef between them seemingly stems over the fact Zechenelly built a large garage apartment on her property in Sequim and painted the entire thing purple in April 2009.
It’s unclear all of what has or has not transpired between Juel and the Zechenelly’s, but at some point, Brian took it upon himself to share with the entire world what he thought of them and it can be seen via Google Earth.
Using a strategic lawn care technique, he craftily carved the word ‘A HOLE’ into a large field in his backyard.
The upset neighbor also included an arrow pointing directly at the Zechenelly’s home.
It seems as though people discovered the secret message sometime last year, and a screenshot of the image has gone viral on Reddit.
It’s unclear if the hidden message is still on the property, but thanks to Google Earth’s satellites it is still visible.
The insult appears to have been mowed into the lawn sometime between 2011 and 2013 – years after the initial issue started between the neighbors over the purple colored garage.
After the Zechenelly’s had the garage apartment painted the bright color in 2009, at least two dozen neighbors hated the color so much, they created a petition against it.
The petition requested relief from their property taxes from Clallam County Assessor Pam Rushton, as they claimed their homes’ values were being undercut by the tall, purple building.
‘I call it the purple people-eater,’ Brian’s daughter, Brianna Juel, told The Peninsula Daily News in 2009.
Cindy told the newspaper that the bright color for garage apartment was inspired mainly by the Painted Ladies, tricolor Victorian houses on Alamo Square in San Francisco.
The California native said that it reflected Sequim’s claim to be the lavender-growing capital of North America.
Brian seemingly despised the lavender color and the ‘polluted views’ of it from his property.
‘This has become the focal point of the community,’ he told the newspaper. ‘I know people have every right to build whatever they want. But it affects others.’
As of last year, the garage apartment is still painted purple.
DailyMail.com requested comment from both Brian and the Zechenelly’s.
