The anonymous tradie double-parked his gold pickup next to the front vehicle in a row of cars on Artarmon Bunnings, blocking them all.
His motivation was directed at customers he believes are misusing the ‘exchange only’ parking section.

He also included photos of the affected cars.
One tradie has divided opinion by hitting back at ‘café dwellers’ and ‘brush shoppers’ using Bunnings’ indoor car park with a controversial stunt.
His motivation was directed at customers he believes are misusing the “exchange only” parking section.
“I double parked blocking y’all at Artarmon Bunnings last Sunday (so I was) listening to the calls on speaker for (my) ute to be moved and well that made me take my time and let them know that’s how we do it “. feel during the week when we’re trying to get the job done and they slow us down.’
The naughty man also claimed that the tradie parked in front of the trapped cars, who could have unlocked them by driving away, joined his protest.
“Many thanks to the builder of the black ute – he saw what I did and just sat on his ute and kept the chaos boiling while enjoying every minute of it.”
Many lore agreed with his actions, with several posting, “Not all heroes wear capes.”
“Couldn’t load up my work ute with a shape coat, encourage brush shoppers,” said one man who posted a photo of sedans and SUVs parked at Bunnings Lake Haven on the New South Wales central coast.
Another said: ‘I love this yard of commerce always full of coffee dwellers.’
“So fucking annoying, there was a lady once parked in her fancy SUV in the driveway to keep her dog in the shade!” another wrote.
But the tradie’s actions were not universally approved on social media.
‘Let me get this straight,’ a man replied.
‘They park there and waste time, so you park them and hold everyone up to waste multiple people’s time? It seems that you are the problem.
One also pointed out that the indoor parking lot is actually for any customer, not just merchants, who load bulky items like lumber or anything that can’t fit through the checkout.
