- Traralgon resident Jodie Oliver returned to her vehicle to find a horrible note
- The angry local expressed their views by writing: ‘Go back to Melbourne selfish c**t’
- Ms Oliver believes she was targeted for her Melbourne dealer records
A woman in the Victoria area has shared an incredibly rude note left on her car by a resident who assumed she was breaking the lock because of the dealer stickers on her car.
The lockdown rules in the country of Victoria were lifted on Friday, allowing residents to enjoy life again without strict stay-at-home orders, but Melbourne is still deep in the trenches.
Traralgon resident Jodie Oliver returned to her car on Friday to find a horrible note that read: ‘Go back to Melbourne selfish c**t’.
Ms Oliver believed she had been targeted because of the Melbourne dealer’s name on her number plates.

Another woman was assaulted in Wonthaggi, two hours south-east of Melbourne, because a resident believed she was from the city.
Other residents of regional Victoria have immediately removed any relationship with Melbourne from their vehicles, hoping to avoid conflict themselves.
Senior Sergeant Peter Watson called for the attacks and abuse to stop.
“We shouldn’t assume there’s just a sticker on a car, that they’re from out of town,” Sergeant Watson said.
Regional Victoria was taken out of lockdown on September 10.

Restaurants, cafes and shops, among others, were able to reopen with capacity and social distancing rules as offices reopened with up to 25 percent of staff.

On Wednesday, Ballarat was shut down in a snap for seven days after recording four new cases of Covid-19.
Prime Minister Dan Andrews has announced that residents of Ballarat will have the same restrictions as Melbourne from 11:59pm on Wednesday, except for the curfew.
At the same time, Shepparton, the only regional city to initially remain in lockdown, will enjoy the same freedoms as the rest of the state from midnight Wednesday.
“It’s not the news Ballarat wants to hear or the decision we want to make,” Prime Minister Dan Andrews told reporters on Wednesday.
‘[But] If we let the virus escape into any part of regional Victoria, it becomes a threat and a risk to all of regional Victoria. We can’t let that happen.’
