A PLUMBER got the ultimate revenge on his neighbours after they complained about him painting his building "boring" grey.
Andy Nesbitt, 55, from posh seaside town St Leonards on Sea, East Sussex, was gobsmacked when over 250 locals moaned about the colour change on a Facebook group.
They claimed the paint job, which cost him £10,000, was "absolutely horrible" and risked leaving residents with "depression".
One bemoaned: "Gutted that another building is being painted grey – it was a lovely lemon [colour before] that glowed pinkish in the sunset and looked so pretty against the blue sky."
Others claimed they would paint their homes "s*** brown" in protest and one furious local even taped an angry note to Andy's window.
The letter, which was signed off with a sad emoji, read: "NOT ANOTHER BUILDING GOING GREY!! It's the seaside, not an industrial estate."
Andy was annoyed by the note and decided to get his own back on the nosy neighbours.

He told The Sun: "I couldn't believe people had such strong opinions.
"One person even commentated that I 'must be rich and wear a top hat' to have chosen grey.
"My wife told me I should get my revenge by painting it all over with purple spots, so I thought, 'What the hell!'"
By 7am the next morning, Andy headed down to his local B&Q and within three hours the building was covered with purple spots.
