A man has been left angry and confused after discovering a padlock had been attached to his ear stretcher. The man, who goes by the name Tom Grim Fandango Matthews on Social media, said he was having a at work and heard a click as an unknown person approached him from behind and locked a padlock through his ear.
He was not sure who had supplied his new earring when he posted his bizarre story online – only to be ridiculed by his friends over the incident. He wrote on Social media ‘So guess what some little stain just did to me if I find you I will put you 6 feet under end of rant [sic]’, with a photo of the padlock dangling from his ear.
It prompted one friend to inquire: ‘Can I just ask how you didn’t notice someone about with you ear?’. An irate Mr Matthews responded: ‘Literally having a fag out back literally they came out heard a click turned round realised they’re was a padlock on my ear and tried to chase em’. No-one seemed to have much sympathy for the hapless man – the majority just laughed at his plight. And despite Mr Matthews’ obvious anger at the situation – and towards the perpetrators -others just seemed to be enjoying it.
Some even chimed in with suggestions for him. One man wrote: ‘Get yourself to the diy shop and give em a fiver to cut it off. After they’ve stopped taking pictures and themselves of course’. Another said: ‘I can pick locks, £10 an hour tho! [sic]’. While a hilarious mate said: ‘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 how mad he was – that he was ‘so glad old boy lived up the road and had bolt cutters’. Since Mr Matthews, who appears to be from the United Kingdom, made the post on February 29, it has had nearly 9,000 interactions on Social media, and nearly 2,000 shares – showing there are a lot of people taking interest in his situation. Daily Mail Australia has attempted to contact Mr Matthews for comment.
Dewi Mudd – it is nothing new to do this sort of thing in my rugby playing days if you fell asleep on tour you ended up wit a hair cut or no eyebroes
Nick Harris – These spacer piercing is the most dumbest thing have ever seen. I hate seeing people with them. News flash! They are not cool looking.
Dennis Aldren – Probably a good thing he doesn’t have a stretcher in the other ear or they might have run a chain to the other one & locked up both ears. Before he noticed of course..
Chuck Rusher – I find it hard to believe that someone clamped it on in a snap of a second. First they would have to slip it through the ear lobe with out him knowing then twist it to a 180 degree angle and the press very hard putting several pounds of pressure to snap it in place. He would have more than enough time for reaction and get . It sounds like an attention grabbing stunt!
