A man’s car has been targeted by a furious resident dubbed ‘mayo man’ in a row over where he parks his Audi.
Jason Doolan is being tormented by a middle-aged man who has put dozens of pieces of paper lined with the creamy sauce on his bonnet, windows and roof.
The airline mechanic, 38, has been in a growing row with ‘mayo man’, who has used the condiment to send a message about where he shouldn’t park.
The row began as the man didn’t want Jason to park next to a block of residential flats and kebab shop and said he was blocking the entrance to a fire station.
Jason, from Troon, wanted to catch the man red-handed and set up a secret camera – which caught the man slapping paper with mayo onto his silver Aldi.
He said the mayo used during the six-month parking row was the ‘cheap stuff’ and would stink after sitting there for hours.
He said: ‘I started parking there because it is all double yellows outside my flat across the road.
‘His argument is that I am blocking the entrance for fire engines but I would never do that, there is plenty of space for any emergency vehicle to get past.
‘It started off with little notes that he would put on my car. Then he would start shouting at me as I got out of my car. At one point the whole family was out.
‘Some of the threats were really strange as well, I remember him saying “you think you’re a big man in your Audi”. I just never really rose to it or got involved.’
He added: ‘It definitely wasn’t Hellmann’s, it was stinking, it had been sitting there for over an hour and you could smell it before you could see it.’
Before his car was targeted with mayonnaise, stickers were put on it which he had to scrape off.
Jason shared the video on Facebook to warn people of the ‘mayo man’ and claimed that other people in the area had been affected – with one person saying he had eggs poured over his car.
He said that he would continue to park in the spot despite the growing row, adding: ‘I really have no choice, it’s either that or face parking tickets but it really is going too far.’
A South Ayrshire Council spokesman said they are not aware of the parking row but have urged any residents who believe a crime has been committed to contact police.
