Angry Man Gets Revenge on Neighbors Via Viral Photo on Google Earth
In Sequim, Washington, a feud between neighbors was brewing. The feud escalated to viral proportions after Brian Juel humiliated his neighbors in a lawnmower stunt for the world to see.
Couple Cindy and Blaine Zechenelly were ostracized by their neighborhood after building a huge garage apartment and painting it purple. When the couple constructed the large purple structure in the small town, neighbors were immediately outraged. They felt that it was distracting, and Juel was especially displeased that the lavender home has become the focal point of the community.
Juel wasn’t the only one in the community opposed to the purple building. Some people in the neighborhood created and signed a petition to gain property tax relief from their Washington county since the apartment towers over their own homes. They felt that it lowers the value of their properties. One woman, Andi Taylor, even claimed that the white walls in her house were turning purple because of the sun reflecting off the so-called “Barney” home, a nickname given by the neighbors.
However, Juel took the feud to the next level. He took a lawnmower to his lawn like pen to paper, and carved out a large “A HOLE” into his grass with an arrow pointing to the Zechenelly residence. The image was caught on Google Earth and went viral when discovered.
It’s not clear whether these actions have had any effect on the Zechenellys. Regardless, Juel’s lawn art is still available on Google Earth for our viewing pleasure.
