WE’VE all seen banners displaying birthday wishes hanging on fences at the side of the road.
And sometimes they’re there for a little too long.
Troon woman Alison Donald took to a Facebook group for the town’s residents to complain about one that had been hanging for a week at a local junction.
She wrote: “Pet hate moan! – to whoever put the banner saying ‘Happy 50th Tricia’ on the fence opposite Deveron Road lights, it’s been there a week now!
“Surely Tricia doesn’t need a constant reminder!
“The rest of us don’t either!
“Whoever put it there, time to remove it!”
But she got more than she bargained for when, later that evening, someone who’d read the post hit back with a banner of their own.
Another member of the group shared a picture of the hilarious new addition, which read “STOP MOANING ALISON”.

Fellow Troon residents also shared the photo on Twitter, attracting thousands of likes and retweets.
Euan Webster wrote: “Ladies and gents, my home town, Troon.”
And Clodagh Harris tweeted: “Why I love Troon.”
Happy 50th, Tricia.
