A note left on an East of England emergency ambulance crew parked in a residential area infuriated their bosses at head office.
"Don't ever park in front of my driveway," said the note. "Not to mention it's a dropped kerb".
And the offended householder signed off with 'bloody idiot!".
Ambulance service bosses snapped the message and put it on Twitter.
"This note was left on the windscreen of a marked rapid response vehicle while a member of #TeamEEAST attended a medical emergency," said the ambulance service.
"We've had to crop the note due to inappropriate language."

A few days ago the East of East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) maintaining their rating for caring as 'Outstanding' in a recent inspection.
The inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which took place during April and May 2019, covered three of the Trust's core services - emergency and urgent care, resilience and patient transport services.
Inspectors commented that: "Despite factors such as high service demands and frequent callers, staff strived to always provide care that was compassionate, respectful, supportive, never time-rushed and met patients' needs."
They also noted that the Trust's emergency service consistently performs better than the national average on the NHS Friends and Family Test, scoring between 95pc and 100pc.
However the trust still came out with an overall rating of 'requires improvement' and they have promised to work hard to bring all areas of service up to 'good'.
