'When your bed is ‘in use’ it is very loud' - cringe at this hilarious awkward note from a neighbour
Talk about shame. A Reddit user has shared the hilariously awkward note his friend found pinned to his door.
Signed by an unnamed “neighbour”, the note requests that his friend make some changes to his nocturnal behaviour, for the sake of those living next door.
The author of the note immediately apologises “for the awkwardness of this note”, before going on to recount his lack of sleep over several weeks.
“After a few weeks of being woken up at odd hours of the night and being tired at work the next day, I feel I must write,” the note reads.
“It would be really great if you would please tighten the screws on your bed. Unfortunately, when your bed is ‘in use’ it is very loud, from the bed creaking to the headboard beating against the wall.”
The local resident adds that they have experienced this problem before with a college roommate, but they found a simple solution by tightening the screws and moving the bed away from the wall.
“If you wouldn’t mind trying that, it would be greatly appreciated,” the note continues.
The author finally signs off by saying: “Thank you so much and again this is awkward, but had to ask.”
While some commenters laughed at the gesture, others were impressed by the author’s “friendly, neighbourly approach”, with one describing them as “the most polite neighbour in the world”.
Another user commented: “Well this is a really tasteful letter. A lot of people would have taken the opportunity to be aggressive or passive aggressive. Sounds like an alright neighbour to have.”
