Dave Bautista is mad online over a building permit. Apparently the Guardians of the Galaxy star, WWE wrestler and Tampa resident found out firsthand how annoying it is to get a permit for a gate he's trying to build at his home.

Yesterday, Bautista took to social media to express his frustrations to the City of Tampa's Twitter account over spending seven months dealing with permitting and rude inspectors.
But it didn't stop there. Not long after Bautista's first tweet, the Guardians of the Galaxy star didn't appreciate when Tampa's Twitter account tweeted a promotion for a beer and barbecue event, rather than getting to work on his permit.
   Needless to say, Bautista's 1.1 million followers on Twitter took notice and started going after the poor sap running Tampa's Twitter account.

This wasn't the end of it. His third and final tweet letting the city of Tampa know that he was in it for the belt is what finally got their attention. No news yet on the status of Bautista's gate permit, but it's good to see a win for "the little guy."
