A man has been left angered after a mystery stranger attached a padlock through his ear while he was outside smoking.
Tom Matthews, who goes by the name of ‘Tom Grim Fandango Matthews” on Facebook, has been left shocked and somewhat confused after discovering a padlock had been attached to his ear.
Posting “So guess what some little w*** just did to me if I find you I will put you 6 feet under” on Facebook hoping to draw support, Tom only found ridicule from friends and strangers alike.
One helpful commenter suggested: “Get yourself to the diy shop and give em a fiver to cut it off. After they’ve stopped taking pictures and p****** themselves of course”.
A friend inquired: “Can I just ask how you didn’t notice someone f****** about with you ear?”.
Perhaps what he really needed was the services of an expert Dublin locksmith.
An obviously irked Mr Matthews said: “Literally having a fag out back literally they came out heard a click turned round realised there was a padlock on my ear and tried to chase em.”
Despite his obvious anger at the situation, another friend commented: “Ear you should be locked up looking like that!”. Others simply said they’d like to congratulate whoever attached the padlock.
Mr Matthews later commented – after re-iterating just how angry he was:” so glad old boy lived up the road and had bolt cutters”.
