Man Buys Used Car From Dealership, Turns On A/C And Discovers Previous Owner’s Confetti Prank
When purchasing a used car, it’s good practice for a potential buyer to do as much research as possible into the vehicle’s history.
Unfortunately, no amount of research helped 29-year-old Chris Linnane with what had been left behind in his Ford Focus ST.
Chris, from Manchester, England, recently bought the used car from a dealership and didn’t notice any glaring or lingering issues.
At least, he didn’t notice anything that would turn him off from actually buying the car.
That all changed, however, on a particularly hot and sunny day in Manchester.
What followed after he turned on the A/C led him to write this open letter to the previous owner of the car on Facebook:
“Dear the previous owner of my car.
“What we’re all looking at here is the driver’s side vent for the A/C and heating. What you’re seeing inside that vent is a large handful of the little circles of paper that belong inside the catch tray of a hole punch.
“The reason they’re in there has now become painfully apparent. When I put the A/C on full blast, I now get a face full of the little b*****d pieces of paper!
“I can’t get a hoover attachment in to get them out, nor do I want to try and remove the vent so now, every time I want cooling down or warming up, I face the inevitability of feeling like I’m part of some sort of confetti celebration.
“Bravo old owner, bravo.”
