We’ve all been there. It’s 3 am and well past your bedtime, but your neighbor’s incredibly loud party somehow isn’t over yet. Depending on your personality, you might go bang on their door, call the police, or put in some earplugs.
Or you might do what this Reddit user did and expose the hell out of your neighbor in a detailed note.
Redditor holdthedoor44 posted his “open letter to my garbage neighbors” on the forum /r/funny, where it went viral.
“Dear neighbors who were partying last night,” the note began.
“Being loud in your own apartment is one thing, but letting Becky stumble around slur-yelling in the hallway at 3:30 AM is another. I understand that Kristin is excited about her new stewardess job with Air Canada, but she needs to tone it the f*ck down because your neighbors are trying to sleep, and quite frankly we all know that WestJet is better anyways. Have fun with those sh^tty benefits, Kristin!”
Things got more and more amazing from there.
The neighbor continued:
“My point is that after last night, I know your friends better than I know my own friends. I don’t have any friends, but that’s besides the point. Your friends are f*cking loud, and the hallway is a ridiculous place to hang out late at night. Or ever. Actually, you should probably just move out. You’re sort of the worst.”
The Redditor signed his letter, appropriately, “your super pissed off neighbors” and taped it to the apartment in question. Amazingly, several other neighbors wrote their own “fuck yous” on the note the next day.
That’s one way to handle a noisy neighbor.
