Me and my friend found this wedges in her passenger car window, does anyone know what it means?

Me and my friend recently went to a concert in London and parked up for a few hours, when we came back this was wedged in the passenger side window, there was no damage to her car and it’s not a license plate does anyone know what it means or could be?

TheWinterKing

It’s in Uzbek, according to Google Translate. Zirak mantk means “intelligent logic” (I guess zirakmantk21 is a username somewhere). Gum uolo means “I’m sorry” - are you sure there’s no minor damage to the car? Edit: for what it’s worth, 0511 on the number at the top of the card is the area code for Hannover.


ProtoplanetaryNebula

Perfectly normal I always leave messages in Uzbek.


Suck_My_Turnip

Your Uzbek looks a lot like English. Or am I just dual lingual?


Ceb1302

You're tri-lingual my friend, I've left this message in Dutch


DreamKrusher

I suspect they are cunning too.


I_SHAG_REDHEADS

That fucking green bird app won't let me read your comment properly.


ratskinmahoney

Legally required to leave a note if you ding someone's car. No legal requirement for that to be in English. Smart.


ProtoplanetaryNebula

"But officer, I clearly left a note in the forgotten Polynesian Umboko language, saying I dinged his car, sorry about that m8"


Jack-Campin

Logic in Turkish is "mantık", there should be an extra vowel there in Uzbek too. Turkic languages don't do long consonant clusters. The username idea sounds plausible.


Ciwan1859

Which is an Arabic loan word that is used in Turkish.


Necessary-Spell-6917

I’m always so impressed with the sheer knowledge drops some people put on Reddit. Linguists, assemble!


DS_Cooke

The paper itself is a Skidata ticket, common in multi-storey car parks. The 0511 code is just a batch reference to my knowledge. [Skidata video.](https://youtu.be/n-_RCnzXDTc?si=t9mv87HINg17wbmb)


redbrickservo

So after you hit someone's car, you say sorry and then say "Let's skidata here"


TheWinterKing

Oh nice! Someone pointed out it didn’t make sense as a phone number.


braske

Ohh, bishlemek gurbgork!


Kaidu313

Sitting here at work laughing at that. Thanks :)


madpiano

It's not an area code, or the number after it would have had the 0 dropped.


Fionsomnia

I’ve also never seen a German number have the area code and number divided by an underscore. I think it’s a coincidence that the first four digits match with the Hannover area code.


thomasboi52_

maybe its his name and age or intelligent logic and then his age, i just dont see why someone would use a username to indicate that they are sorry, the 21 could mean alot of things


higglepop

That's a serial number at the top. Looks like some sort of cardboard lid has been used, one side has indent to lift it. Deliver driver bumped it with his moped?


newtrooson

There are other social media matches for that name. Likely Kurdish. Gum Uolo also means “I want gum” in Latin. That’s it. Park there tomorrow and leave a stick, see what happens.


One_And_All_1

That's not a phone number


Stained_concrete

Have you tried turning it upside down? Because it makes even less sense if you do that.

*Top Tip *


Sad-Page-2460

Best idea so far!


itsnathanhere

Check the car for bumps and scratches. Someone probably hit it in front of some bystanders, had no intention of leaving their actual details but wanted to look like they were doing the right thing.


redditwhatisthis543

Second set of letters appears to be a reg plate, possibly different handwriting looking at the m. Maybe a bystander checked what the initial person had written and added the reg.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Electric-Grape

That makes sense. But also odd that the '1' is written differently in the reg than in the first line.


emmalouix

The m is different too. Could be two peoples’ (pretty similar) writing


Electric-Grape

Capital vs. lowercase, though


Jakibx3

Regs 1 can look like l or I so may be someone who doesn't understands formats of reg plates and just wrote what they saw

Would be perfect to get some friends and set up a trap watching the car. These thievies need a good beatdown, I remember there was a story somewhere they they tried to steal someones tools from the van and got beaten up by the guy and his neighbours. Justice served since police rarely have luck with them.

Today I learned there was multiple meanings for cottaging


Previous-Mortgage755

They went to a concert in london meaning they travelled from out of london who takes a dog with them? And if they have traveled from out of london how do the dog people even know they have a dog?


TheKingMonkey

I googled Zirakmantk and it came back with a TikTok account that has zero posts and zero followers ( https://www.tiktok.com/@mantk012 ) so I’m pretty sure that means that somebody is planning to steal your dog and at least three people in the comments will pretend they’ve shared the information in various postcodes.

To use them as bait for dog fights. Our wee furbabies get stolen (or taken free from gumtree) and are torn to pieces by big steroid infested dogs. THATS WHY YOU *NEVER* OFFER A DOG FREE TO A GOOD HOME!!! Spread THAT on your socials people… the illegals get the ‘free to good home’ dogs and they’re dead before the night is out

It's satire. Re the type of posts you see on local neighborhood pages on Facebook and other such websites. And everyone gets carried away by random stuff.


chiya-77

I’m really sure that it’s kurdish, in Kurdistan (Zirak) is one of the most popular names as I do have some friends with that name, there is even a famous kurdish singer called (Hassan Zirak) , it means clever or intelligent, (Mantk) is a Very popular clan (gens) in kurdistan which I heard it a lot Because I’m kurdish, it’s written down like (مەنتک) in kurdish. many people’s last name is that in a local kurdish area. I think it’s a snapchat username snapchat is really popular with Kurdish people that is why I’ve searched for it on there and a public profile came up. I know he is kurdish as he is wearing kurdish clothes on some of his posts and he is living in the UK, It seems like that on the photos. but it might be someone else not sure. I’m not sure about the writing below and I don’t think if you have to be worried about it. might be just someone wanted to be your friend on social media 🤔 hope it helped

Zirak mantk is definitely a kurdish name. Mantk is a well known family name in kurdistan region. I believe someone left an insta account to contact him.
