A UK resident was stunned when he received a bizarre complaint letter recently – and the nasty note has now sparked outrage throughout his community.
Over the weekend, Tom Squires – who lives on Clarence Road in the up-market suburb of Harborne in Birmingham – woke to find the anonymous note slipped under his door.
It contains a strange grip and about the man's washing.
"It would be kind of unsightly and unpleasant." Many thanks, "the printed letter reads.
Mr Squires shared a snap of the letter on the Harborne Community Facebook group and asked fellow members to contact within the group to discuss the matter further.
Do you have any contact details for Clarence Road Residents' Group? We've already got a note posted through our doors and would like to speak to them. Thanks in advance, ”he posted.
However, his post inspired to an immediate debate among Facebook users, attracting hundreds of angry comments.
One Facebook user branded the author of the notes to "snob", while another described it as "the most middle class problem I've ever seen".
Others attacked the "aggressive", "rude" and "cheeky" notes, with one resident claim: "The sense of entitlement in Harborne is actually overwhelming the place has no soul."
Another neighbor revealed they had received a similar complaint in the past.
"Welcome to Clarence Road, mate. That local wrote, while another added: "Blimey, this is beyond ridiculous. We got asked not to wash our car in the street not long after we moved in (no joke!)" It´s your garden – hang whatever you bloody well like. "
Many members of the 13,000-strong Facebook group had never heard of the Clarence Road Residents Group, he was likely to be the work of a single disgruntled neighbor, while others urged Mr Squires to retaliate by hanging his washing out “in the nude "To really stir up some trouble.
And others pointed out the owners of their own backyard.
After being inundated by supportive comments, Mr Squires, a teacher, thanked his neighbors.
"He wrote." Thank you for all of them, "he wrote.
"We haven't heard from the residents, but I teach my students at school, it is always better to resolve objections / conflict through dialogue if you like to discuss further please feel free to knock."
