Neighbor notes are some of my actual favorite things to read on the internet. Passive-aggressively telling your neighbor to stop #*%$ing doing that thing that they’re doing, kind of politely, but not really, because you’re totally calling them out is HYSTERICAL to me.
My eyes often salivate (they’re not crying they just get hungry for eye candy) and sweat (that’s crying) after reading through some serious back and forth neighbor banter. I legit get an ab work out. But this particular note caught my eye because it actually turned out for the best! Shocking, I know. I mean, the neighbor still wrote to stop #*%$ing (but that’s because her neighbor was actually #*%$ing, and really loudly apparently).
Pretty much everyone who has been to college or lived in an apartment has had to listen to their neighbors having loud sex. Whether your taken or #foreveralone it can often be annoying, cause like sometimes you just wanna take a nap or like watch your favorite show not on full volume, or try to turn some music up awkwardly smiling at your parents when they come to visit, reassuring them that it’s not like that all the time and you’re totally like an adult living on your own and making it and definitely not living in a sketchy place.
Anyway…to get back to the point, Syracuse University student Jenna Levine took the leap and decided to confront her rude loud AF neighbor with this note.
Please have sex a little more quietly please. Some of us are trying to nap and not be reminded how alone I am…feel free to make all the love you want. Just please, make it nasty at a lower volume. Thank you!
Except it turns out her neighbor isn’t actually rude, and apologized sincerely for being loud AF:
And even included a ‘damn sry you’re lonely and I was an insensitive prick’ candy bar present.
I’m so so incredibly sorry about that. I didn’t realize how loud I was being, and ya know, sometimes having loud sex is low key kinda hot but obviously at your cost, which I apologize so sincerely for. I’m so so sorry, I hope this hasn’t occurred too often, and thanks so much for the incredible and hilarious card. I will for sure try to make it nasty at a significantly lower level. And hey, don’t you worry, you’re not alone forever. The right person will come along when the time comes. I was single for 18 years. Haha. Once again, I apologize so sincerely and deeply.
Sorry, Room 338.
AW! Did they just become best friends?
Levine went on to say:
“I never thought they would actually write back. At first I was nervous they were gonna murder me but my they were really good sports about it.”
“I still haven’t met my neighbors but they’ve tweeted at me how excited they are that we’re going viral and that they’re gonna keep the note forever.”
So what did we learn here? Several things:
- Sometimes neighbor notes turn out for the best (and don’t end in murder)
- Having loud sex is, ya know, not so low-key hot
- This girl is not #Foreveralone because she just made a bestie
- Chocolate makes everything better – okay this is a known fact but I wanted to throw it in anyway
- There are kind, understanding neighbors in the world
- College is weird – also kind of a known fact
