Bye Bye Driveway
When an elderly man came home one day, he found himself facing a shocking predicament. Someone had come and blocked off half of his driveway with cinder blocks. Who could ever do such a thing? And most of all, why? Well, you won’t believe it. Trust us!
The Strange Cinder Blocks
Oliver Lynch had spent all 79-years of his life living in Osceola, Florida. A humble man and not one to make waves, you can imagine his surprise when he returned home one day to find half of his driveway gone! Pretty strange, right?
Asking Neighbor for Help
Not sure what to do. Oliver reached out to his neighbor to ask if he had seen anyone put up the cinder blocks on his property. It was then that poor Oliver had a bombshell of truth dropped on him.
The Truth is Revealed
Oliver was stunned when his new neighbor revealed that he had placed the cinder blocks along his driveway. But why? Why would a brand new neighbor intentionally try to bully an elderly man?
Property Line Mishap
According to Oliver, his new neighbor had purchased the vacant lot next to him and was planning to build a house. When going over the property lines, the man discovered that his property ran into a part of Oliver’s driveway. Therefore, he decided to take it back.

When speaking with the local media, Oliver stated that he didn’t have much fight left and hated to be bulldozed over. According to his records, it details that two 12-foot driveways are allowed next to one another. So what could the old man do?
Reaching Out to the County

Oliver decided to reach out to a county spokesman with the hope of getting some clarity. The spokesman looked over his documents and agreed that there was nothing wrong with Oliver’s driveway; however, he did suggest getting a surveyor involved or legal authorities.
Legal Action Must Be Taken

This news stunned poor Oliver, who couldn’t believe he would have to resort to legal action to reclaim his driveway. Speaking to the news, Oliver said, “What’s he really going to do with these extra yards of concrete?”
Begging for His Driveway
Not wanting to be drawn into a long legal battle, the 79-year-old Oliver continued to make contact with his new neighbor. Unfortunately, the man refused to budge on the issue.
Minister or Sinister?
“He said he was a minister or something like that. A God-fearing man. But I don’t think that’s very Christian-like,” Oliver told the local news . We think this minister may want to open his Bible every so often.
A Long History

The Media Gets Involved

As the battle continued to draw out, the media tried to reach out to the unidentified neighbor, but he refused all calls. Is it possible he knew he was in the wrong and tormenting this poor senior man was in poor taste?
After the media ran the story, Oliver’s plight spread throughout the local community. The video of his story reached over 3 million views on YouTube. Oliver begged if anyone could help him he would be most appreciative.
No Ill Will? Right!
