We just got some new bushes this weekend and as I viewed the cameras today, I saw this. Wtf man
By - shadknight20
That other bush was like 'If I just sit here quietly maybe he won't see me'
He kept glancing back towards it and I kept thinking he’s going to tear it up! Thankfully the sign pissed him off more.
perfect opportunity for real life doodle if you ask me r/reallifedoodles
Instructions unclear. I just doodled myself in real life.
I doodled all over the floor, and now it's all sticky.
I hope you cleaned up properly afterwards. Putting away all the supplies…etc.
The sign muttered *'jerk'* quietly and look at what happened to him.
Muttered one more thing after getting beaten up and he returned to finish it off.
> Yeah, you better run!
- The sign, idk, maybe
The guy heard that and came back to give it a smack.
He’s training for the UFC (Ultimate Foliage Chamionship)
I’m sorry but the fact that he pulled in just to fuck up that one bush cracked me up. Rip bushy.
At least he’s not taking out his anger on people
Or that we know of
Yeah. This is a man with extreme anger issues, and he's either lashing out indiscriminately or aware of himself and "venting" on something besides a human being.
Its a carefully choreographed mental ballet of talking to your monkey brain calmly to embrace reason, logic, and empathy once again. This looks like the outward throes of someone caught in the middle of that
I kept on waiting for him to get the other bush, but he fancied that sign a lot more!
It's the kind of guy that shouldn't own a gun but probably does.
Or he's aware of his anger issues and purposely avoids owning one. I have anger issues and though I am now better than this guy (wasn't always the case), I know better than to get a gun and change my life forever.
I don't get a gun mainly because I have major depressive disorder, anxiety and issues with self harm (self biting although I used to punch myself in the head)
Why own a gun when you can be this guy and own a minivan? Can do more damage, especially when on meth bath salts. Assuming this is Florida?
I know that in the context of what you're saying it doesn't make much difference, but that ain't a minivan (Dodge Journey).
Did you rent the place from an ex of his?
I don’t know if I posted the story or not but here it is:
I work in IT and we got a call about looking up security cameras because one of the freshly planted pots was destroyed. My coworker told me to watch this security footage and I couldn’t even believe my eyes. This was after hours and no one was at the office. The whole video is about 10 minutes. I only posted the crazy part. After he loses it on the sign, he sits back in his car hitting the steering wheel. After about 4 minutes, he gets out with his shirt off and throws his phone on the pavement with all his might it seemed. Paced around for a moment and shamelessly picked up his destroyed phone. He then gets back in his car and sits there for the rest of the time. Once he backed out, he opened his windows and put his middle finger out at the street and drove off.
This made my boring day very entertaining haha
Apparently he came back later in the day and put the bits of plants he ripped out back in the pot. We did not call the cops on him.
I reeeeally want to know this dude's story. What made him so angry he had to stop his car and mangle a random bush? It's a mystery. The Bush Mangler.
EDIT: General consensus seems to be drugs, money, job loss, or a woman.
I really want to see the state of his hands after those rounds with that sign
They've gotta be scuffed he was not holding back
Likely mangled his 5th metacarpal bones on both hands too
So that's how moths hold on to vertical surfaces.
I broke mine and it's pretty grim. Hand looks fucked and it gets sore sometimes. Don't think ill ever get full pinky strength back.
Adding an imagined conversation between him and the sign [maybe the bush?] would be fun. Looks like the sign kept insulting him after he walked back to the car a few times.
I feel like he loved that bush and was planning to propose but then he drove by and saw her sitting with her ex - the sign.
He had received a text from her a week earlier with a pic of the little brother bush while they were out chilling but he could see a little bit of the post in the background so he had kind of known something was up.
On arriving it was exactly as he feared and he took out his rage on her before doing the same to her ex while the little brother looked on scared.
After smashing his phone to erase years of hurtful memories shared with the bush he got in his van and started driving. He didn't stop until he got to the nursery and spent all his cash on some sleezy shrubs.
The sign didn’t seem to budge at all….
He's lucky there was no sign of resistance
Must've gotten some really bad news while driving.
"Lol, you act hard but I bet you couldn't even hurt a bush!"
"I'LL SHOW HIM"
“This is your wife. I’m sleeping with a bush. We’re in love. I’m leaving you and going to live with him in his flower pot.”
I hope that guy is okay though for real. For sure he doesn't know how to control his anger but it is obvious he was feeling pretty bad. I have been there too and that must have been the worst feeling...
Right? Everyone is going to jump on him for randomly attacking that plant and punching the sign because they’re stupid and illogical things to do but the fact is that probably something awful happened to him and he broke.
About 10 years back my brother who is chronically asthmatic and had a sudden collapse of both lungs. They got him to intensive care but it seemed like he was going to die. I got to the hospital and went to run in the front door, which I thought was open, but it turned out to be invisibly clean glass. Knocked me flat on my ass. It was just the last straw. I did exactly this, I saw red and hulked out on the pot plants.
Yeah, kudos to him for stopping driving in that enraged state.
The news must have been pretty bad.
Poor guy must’ve had a come-to moment when he came back to pick up the bits of plants.. hope he gets the anger management he needs
I’m guessing dumped or cheated on. At least he attacked inanimate objects and not people, or doing something reckless in the car.
He just checked his voicemail. He found out that he missed the warranty renewal period for his car even after multiple attempts we made to contact him.
Holy fuck that's funny.
Maybe he missed out on a scholarship by the narrowest of margins
$GME stock plunged. It was his only ticket outta here.
This checks out. Now it makes sense how he was able to pummel that sign like that: Diamond hands.
This is your brain on FUD.
Is it bad that I was watching this guy thinking yep can confirm have been this angry?
I've never mangled shrubbery. But I did crack my own car windshield once. Yeah not the proudest moment.
There really is something to be said in that moment for taking it out on objects and not myself or a moving car. It can sound like a cop out but really honestly it's not.
We need to find him and do an AMA ASAP
Lmfao “I’m Kyle the bush mangler AMA”
Can we do an AMA with the bush as well? I would like to hear its side of the story.
*Bush noises intesify*
I heard is name is Rustle...
I'll see myself out.
Could always be meth.
*Metthew* I shall call him.
I think he probably needed to leave the house because his wife burnt the roast again.
I think she made spaghetti again.
I'll be the first to admit that although I am generally a smart guy, I have my demons & haven't always behaved in appropriate ways. My struggles with accepting the state of the world that I live in have led to my generally impoverished state & my big question on seeing things like this is always:
How the fuck is this dude so mentally unstable & yet is able to afford a decent vehicle to facilitate his moments of madness?
That's what they used to call me in high school.
So what is written on that sign?
"Do not touch the plants"
"do not punch this sign"
Yep, something really shitty has happened in their life and they reached breaking point.
Whilst it doesn't justify their actions, at least they let out their anger in the safest way possible and not do something rash whilst driving or let it out at someone (if they were angry at someone).
This is just an all round shitty thing for everyone and I hope that dude feels better in the future :(
As goofy and dumb as this is, if every person with anger management issues pulled over somewhere safe like him and fucked up a bush instead of roadraging and causing accidents the world would be a much safer place.
"A message from the Counsel of Bush Merchants"
I love how sympathetic these comments mostly are. It really speaks to the human spirit that so many people can identify with being so angry you mangle a bush.
and if they owned up and rectified their mistakes afterwards is an even bigger bonus!
Only one victim, the Bush.
I've had shitty days, but I don't think mine has been as bad as his.
Two victims. The bush, and his phone.
Should we also count his dignity?
That was probably already dead to begin with from the look of things...
To be fair I've been about that enraged once and it wasn't much to do with that particular day, something small but negative did happen but it was just the last straw after repressing a lot of stuff. If I could go back I'd do what this guy is doing before letting it all out in front of the person I was pushing everything back for in the first place.
Absolutely agree, I think a little empathy goes a long way. Would hate to see that anger let loose behind the wheel.
I've had a day this bad, and damn, it sucks when you have NO way to let off steam. I hope dudebro eitherbgets the help he needs, or feels better.
Well.......... I suppose it's better a bush than a person. At least he stopped driving too.
But still... That poor innocent bush! 🥺
Did you people find why he was so angry?
He did not like your new bushes
I could be wrong, but I believe that bush cheated with that mans wife.
Holy Crapola, 51 AWARDS?!?! Thanks everyone! Even for the free ones!
Where can I cash these in……?
"Thanks, I just had it stuffed!"
Bush did it
"I saw those pictures of you recently"
"I was young! I needed the work!"
And my free reward as well, nice job.
And my axe!
What did the sign do?
I’ve seen a lot of signs in my day, and that sign looks as guilty AF.
Have my free award, lol.
That bush's name? George.
I believe the fella with the flat white face was in on that too.
We should have seen it, the signs were all there.
It was a treesome.
I think more probable with that guys mom. Totally took his mom's van to throw a tantrum
What about the sign?
He saw it. And it opened up his eyes.
And what? The sign watched?
I don’t wanna know what that sign did, then
Worst gardener ever
Not if we reverse this gif...
Its like he was celebrating how pretty he made the bush and then left.
I don’t know if I can live in a world without a gifreversingbot
I wish I could watch it but fucking Reddit mobile is being annoying and not letting me see the link.
There is no link, sadly, bot must be broken or banned from this sub :(
I did the same thing and I got this message from u/gifreversingbot : “Hi! Unfortunately, I am banned in that subreddit so I couldn't reply to your comment. I was still able to reverse your gif though! https://imgur.com/b3P86Le.gifv ” Here you go
Edit: Thanks for the awards guys. Just doing my job as a fellow Redditor
Why the hell would someone ban the innocent gifreversingbot?!
Ah, plantbending, the more specific cousin of earthbending.
Ah, plantbending, the more specific branch of earthbending.
Damn, I wish I had a landscaper with such power!
Speed gardening isn't everyone's thing
Don’t even need sound to hear the vein-popping shrieks while he destroys the innocent bush.
Do the roar
I luv ya daddy
He probably just lost the "I'm not getting a minivan" argument.
I'm single and absolutely love my minivan. It's the best, most comfortable, most utilitarian vehicle I've ever owned. It's great for dogs, can tow, can fit a fucking full sized mattress in the back for van camping. Whenever I hear people shitting on minivans because like this all I hear is "fragile masculinity" (not talking about you OP).
Minivans kick ass. Had one when I was doing construction, a 90s Dodge caravan. Low deck for tools, always locks unlike the bed of a truck and you can still get whole sheets of plywood into it.
When we had kids, I was the one who convinced my wife that we should get one.
I had a friend who traded in a Dodge Charger for a Dodge Caravan and subsequently started punching holes through doors in his house. I guess the stress of suddenly having career, wife, kids, dog, house adds up and boils over violently.
Fuck this bush in particular!
And fuck this sign!
And fuck my head too!
I think you should post this on r/idiotsfightingthings
Thank you so much for a new subreddit
It’s a good one
I just assumed that's where I was until I read your comment.
oh, sorry, wrong house
A gang of bushes killed this man’s wife and kid during a drug deal gone band. Now aren’t you the one who feels dumb?
A gang of bushes pushed his mother off a cliff you say?
How did her body look?
To shreds you say?
Now all the bushes gotta die because they wanted a concert instead of drugs?
He hates the new bushes
Was he, by chance, also selling bushes, right next to the place you bought your bushes from?
Somehow, this is better at low fps
The dude came out of that car like one of the Bushwhackers (wrestling tag team). Then proceeded to whack some bushes!
Tyler 1 after getting camped.
Tyler1 after getting cut off in traffic.
lol i was scrolling through the comments just to make sure i'm not the only one seeing t1 in this video
That sign should've kept its mouth shut.
Not sure if it’s steroids or hemorrhoids, but there’s definitely some kind of rage going on here.
Dude is definitely on hemorrhoids.
This guy lives life at 2FPS.
That would also make me that angry, to be honest
Honestly to me looks like the guy is going through some stuff. Doesn't justify what he did to that bush but.. man... that's someone who's having a rough time.
I’m not excusing the property damage but kind of glad he pulled over and/or didn’t take it out on another person.
This was kinda my thought. By his pacing afterward, it's obvious something is on his mind. And same, not condoning property damage but it's better than taking that rage out on someone
that’s how I calm myself down. hands on hips/deep breaths
He's not in touch with his anger.
Oh I think he was WELL in touch with his anger in this video. Looked like he was touching the hell out of it.
This is what I came to say. I'd rather see him pull over and take his frustration on inanimate objects than another driver or someone at home.
At first I was laughing but then... are you ok?
Yup. Definitely having a bad day.
Looks like a case of *The Monday’s* .
Man I really hope machinehead or glycerin don’t come on the radio while he’s driving
Looks like the dude just needed to vent. Maybe he just left the hospital where he has a sick child, or walked in on his wife cheating on him.
I hope he pays for any property he destroyed but I’m glad he didn’t take out his emotions on another human being but on inanimate objects.
I remember sitting in my van and screaming in the drivers seat after I opened the phone bill and found evidence my husband was cheating on me with my best friend of all people. I took our kids to my in-laws and drove back home parked in the driveway and sat there screaming. Those two are still married going on 15 years later.
Yeah totally, this is what I see. A guy in pain, and a guy NOT taking it out on a person.
I'm willing to ignore the possibility of drugs and go straight with your theory. That is a very frustrated and pissed-off person trying not to take it out on people / the people normally around him.
Looking a the direction signs in the parking lot, I am betting this is a bank, and banks have a special ability to push emotionally stable people to violence.
I honestly just feel sad for him. Whatever he was struggling with just broke him.
A person on drugs doesn't destroy a bush, punch a sign then calm down and tries to walk it off.
Well, I'm glad he took it out on a bush and not a person or animal.
This man obviously sold his AMC stock right before it blew up
Damn the graphics for Prop Hunt have gotten a lot better this season.
This is what happens when you try to cage your inner rebel with a minivan.
Who am I kidding? My inner rebel *loves* my minivan!
It's the Swiss Army knife of vehicles!
Looked like he needed to work some stuff out. It would be hilarious if you hung a punching bag out there with a sign, "In case you need another go"
I hope that guy gets therapy.
I'm not saying the property damage is excusable, but that much anger being vented against easily replaceable things is alot better than him taking it out on a person, if indeed that is where the anger is coming from.
You know, if he was having a road rage incident, I would rather him take his anger on a bush than possible kill someone with his car.
And plus, thats how you keep the other bushes in line. With FEAR.
Meth is a hell of a drug.
Obviously the sign said something under its breath to piss him off even worse.
I actually don’t think this one is drug related… life has a way of making you this angry at least at some point during it
Not meth, just the Mondays.
Roid rage road rage.
That ... guy need counseling.
my favorite part was the double back for the sign. “you say somethin? huh?!”
He attacked that bush the same way zombies attack you in left 4 dead when you're incapacitated
He must’ve seen the movie where plants killing everyone
This is the sequel, The Unhappening.
I come to Reddit for comments like this
r/fuckyouinparticular Poor bush..
This looks like a Florida Man thing to do, but it might not be Florida for once
Better the replaceable items than the person he could've hit instead.
Dude was on a fucking mission to destroy the first thing he saw lmao
Now he is just your gardener!
Let’s not beat around the bush shall we
Maybe that bush gave gim the wrong look, or said something about his wife. IDK man, it seems like that bush had it coming.
Am I the only person who thinks this looks like tyler1 (famous league of legends twitch streamer)?
I hope he was caught and had to pay for damages at the very least.
That is the much fabled Omega Kyle.
Any drywall within 3 miles of him has holes, apparently.
