An Elderly Man’s Neighbor Blocked His Driveway With Cinder Blocks And Learned His Lesson

Most neighbors respect each others’ properties. If someone decorates another person’s yard, it is considered rude. But one neighbor in Osceola, Florida, took this rudeness to a new level.

When an elderly man returned home to find that a line of cinder blocks blocked his driveway, he knew something wasn’t right. His new neighbor was planning to pave over the man’s driveway. See how this 79-year-old man reacted and how he won his driveway back.

In 2013, a new neighbor moved into a neighborhood in Osceola, Florida. This was no problem for 79-year-old Oliver Lynch. He had lived in the same house for 25 years and had seen many neighbors come and go.

Little did Lynch know that this new neighbor was going to give him a world of trouble. Fortunately, Lynch was not willing to be pushed around, even though he was an elderly and kind man most of the time.
