The Plant Thief
Really, who steals a plant?! That’s just wrong. Someone grew and loved that plant, and stealing it is just beyond low. We understand that it’s much easier to take an already beautiful, grown plant instead of caring for one yourself but, you simply cannot do that. Which is why we love this sign so much.
Especially the part about punching kittens, because that’s an extremely accurate comparison. The neighbors truly do suck!
Toilet Paper Dictatorship
This is just priceless. We don't know which note is funnier (or more worrying) - the one asking tenants to use a specific type of toilet paper because the building's sewage system is so bad that it can't handle the quality kind toilet paper, or the one from a tenant asking if he can use socks instead.
Let's just hope the tenant was joking, because clearly, if the sewage can't handle Charmin toilet paper, it definitely won't be able to handle a pair of socks!
Malcolm must have been so happy with himself when he wrote this note. After all, there's nothing better than to be able to rub something in a bad neighbor's face. This is a stark reminder of why it's so important to be nice to our neighbors.
You never know when a bunch of people might come around to steal your things and you'll need a Malcolm by your side to fight them off.
Best Note Ever
Not only is Max from 3F a great artist - just look at that fantastic old man! - he's also a very creative writer. What's more, he even tried to fold his neighbor's sheets! We would love to have a neighbor like Max, and it is incredibly annoying for someone to leave their clothes in a shared dryer for such a long time. We support you, Max!
And hey, he did wait an entire lifetime to move the clothes so, we'd say it's more than fair that he took them out of the dryer.
Not a Fan of Squirrels
We're not so sure about the bubonic plague, but feeding squirrels do make them more dependent on humans. And if they're using the neighbors lawn to bury their nuts, you should definitely stop feeding them so much.
Then again, maybe the squirrel feeder can make a case saying that peanuts serve as good fertilizer?
The Prehistoric Sandals Neighbor
This is just hilarious. What a clever, and very passive-aggressive way to tell the upstairs neighbor to stop stomping around. And truly, sometimes, there seems to be no other reasonable explanation for the amount of noise a person can make.
We commend this neighbor for taking the time to find a photo of these rock sandals, write the note, print it, and stick it on the staircase. Now that's commitment.
Don't Feed the Pigeons
This neighbor figured there was no need for any further explanation. Pigeons do things, so don't feed them, the end. And to be fair, they are right. Pigeons do do a lot of things, and very annoying ones at that.
Everybody knows that once you start feeding them, more pigeons will come, and will breed, and will continue to do this until the end of time. So yes, they do things. Stop helping them.
The Passive-Aggressive Smiley Face
There's nothing quite like a smiley face to end an already annoying neighbor note. Although, in all fairness, they are totally right. people usually need some kind of permit to build a garage, especially when it crosses over to another person's property.
Hey, at least the neighbors were friendly enough to welcome them to the neighborhood.
No more Roxette
As far as annoying neighbor notes go, this is definitely one of the more fun ones. And to be fair, they're not wrong. Everybody loves Roxette, but not everyday at 5:30 in the morning! We appreciate this person's attempt at making their alarm clock more creative, but if you're going to press 'snooze' for 30 minutes, it's time to go back to birds chirping, buddy.
Also, we absolutely love that picture of grumpy cat, and the messy haired little kid. And we would sincerely take this neighbor seriously when they threaten to play the Macarena at 5 in the morning. So they better silence that Roxette tune, fast!
Too Much Incense
There's nothing wrong with lighting some nice incense in the house - it's relaxing, it makes the entire room smell wonderful, it helps you meditate. However, if you're lighting so much incense that your neighbors are leaving you concerned notes asking you to stop, you've definitely gone too far.
And to be fair, too much incense can start making people ill. What we wonder is, if the neighbors smell it that strongly, what in the hell is happening inside this person's home?!
The Nicest Random Stranger
Although it's not very calming to know you have a neighbor that siphons gas out of your car at 3AM in the morning, we guess it is nice that they at least paid you back. We just hope it doesn't become a regular thing.
Also, unless these people live in the middle of nowhere, it's kind of strange that all the gas stations around were closed. Especially since many gas stations are usually open 24/7.
The Friendly Neighbor
How nice of this them to rescue their neighbor's couch cushions. Trying to rescue the entire couch would have been even nicer, though.
Hopefully, they did all they could, and the couch was just too far gone. If only everybody could be as nice a neighbor as the people in 538.
We get it. It's not nice to live with someone that has a bed bug infestation and all they do is play a hack-and-slash role playing video game like Diablo 3. However, when kicking someone out of the house, it is preferable to do it in person, and not with such a passive-aggressive note.
Then again, maybe Linda's ex-roommates did try to talk to her about the problem in person several times, and this was a last resort. Good luck, Linda.
These people were tired of being watched, and maybe even filmed, so they decided to take matters into their own hands. And we applaud them. Everybody has the right to privacy, and whoever put up that camera should be severely penalized.
Although something tells us that, after seeing this sign, they shut off that camera for good.
They've Had Enough
It's never pretty when your neighbor threatens to pick up dog poop and slap it on your head. But then again, neither is leaving your dog's crap on somebody else's lawn.
This neighbor has had enough, and we completely believe they will actually do this if they see even the tiniest piece of poop in their lawn.
The Sneaky Old Lady
Apparently, an old lady in this neighborhood has been very naughty. Not only has she been throwing her dog's poop in other people's trash cans, but she's clearly been doing it for a while! Something tells us this neighbor wouldn't have written such an aggressive note otherwise.
Now, this can go two ways - either the old lady will get very scared at the prospect of having her head bolted to a car, or she'll get extremely angry at the threat and decide to throw even more poop in the cans. We sincerely hope it's the former.
A Simple Note
This person was angry, and we don't blame them. It seems that their neighbor completely lost it when they saw dog poop on their property and, instead of trying with a note first, they simply decided to throw the poop on the person's car. Not OK.
Especially when it seems like the person who got their car trashed doesn't even have the money to go out and buy a proper writing pad to leave a note.
The Annoying Flute Player
On the one hand, we feel for the poor flute player. There's nothing worse than being told you have no talent at something, especially when you've clearly been practicing day and night. Then again, if we were this guy's neighbors, we'd probably be leaving the same kind of note. Although perhaps a slightly less aggressive one.
Sorry buddy, it may be time to give away that flute. Or soundproof the walls, at least.
Even though the passive-aggressiveness of this note is painfully obvious, you have to appreciate the fact that this neighbor took the time to not only explain basic parking, but even draw a nice little diagram.
If this person keeps parking in the wrong space, or over the yellow lines after this, it would be fair to assume that this neighbor will definitely resort to a more unpleasant solution - like bashing windows or slashing tires. And we can't say we would completely disagree.
In the eternal battle of poop between humans and dogs, it seems that dogs take the cake (or the ‘pie’) and win this one. Regardless, nobody likes to have someone poop on their property, human or dog. If we were the ones seeing this sign and it was directed towards us, you’d probably see us picking up poop every day from now on.
Trust us, you don’t want to mess with ANYONE who’s willing to weaponize their grandson for fecal warfare. It’s best to skip these wars, as they might have a rather smelly ending. Just ask Bill the neighbor, or better yet, ask his grandson...
Move Away Maybe
There’s nothing like musically adept and lyrically minded passive-aggressive people to add some color (just not orange) into a neighbor’s life. Apparently, this neighbor was a very loud one that likes to argue. Always the best kind of person to live just in front of you, huh? Would the neighbor get the musical reference?
Would they change their ways due to the beautifully painted note? We’re not really betting on it, but hey — these are some really nice writing abilities! Might as well put them to some use and write something nice.
Orange Car Bad
Some people take offense at political signs, others like to keep the money as a private topic that’s not up for discussion, and most importantly, there are also those who are deeply offended and disrupted by the color orange. In-fact, these orange-phobes are so distressed at the sight of a large orange vehicle that they go as far as writing a disgusting note meant to patronize the car’s owner.
If there was a button that colors the note writer’s house, clothes, and life orange, we would press it in a heartbeat. It’s understandable to get mad at someone blocking your car or invading your space, but losing your mind over a car’s color? Sheesh.
Why Eric decided to throw cheese on the roof of his neighbor’s apartment is beyond anyone’s knowledge at this point in time. Perhaps Eric was vegan and didn’t like the cheese they put on his pizza, or maybe he’s just a really big Breaking Bad fan and wanted to create a true reenactment of the show.
Either way, if Eric doesn’t stop throwing cheese on the roof, it might be time to start throwing cheese back at him. If there’s one thing that stops kids from throwing cheese, it’s getting moldy cheese thrown back in your face.
Sometimes being a good neighbor means being considerate and empathetic towards other people’s situations. once in a while, you come back home drunk after a night out clubbing and you just have to pee or else your bladder will explode. Of course, you could’ve just peed outside the apartment, but that would not be fun now would it?
So here’s our message to the note’s creator – you need to learn how to be more polite and understanding. Perhaps your neighbor was just trying to get the garbage wet to make it easier for the garbage people to squeeze it in there garbage truck. No? OK...
I'm Not Really Apologizing
Einstein once said that while genius is limited, there is no limit to human stupidity. On that same note, you can only be oh so considerate, but a lack of consideration? It’s near-infinite in potential. We've all had neighbors that made us stop and ask ourselves “is this person even conscious of their environment?“.
Apparently, this poor nurse who works night shifts couldn’t sleep on Saturday morning as she was interrupted by persistent drilling from the neighbor’s apartment. We hope the relatively polite message got through to this neighbor, and that this poor lady nurse is sleeping tightly.
Freud Won't Be Happy
There’s a famous concept in psychology called “projection”. basically, when a person who has anger issues is yelling at you to calm down while the veins in his forehead look like they’re going to explode out of his mind, that is what psychologists would call ‘projecting’. Although we don’t have any evidence whether or not the neighbors had obnoxious and loud friends over, what we do know for sure is that non-ignorant and considerate people do not write notes like this.
At best the note writer is just as bad as the neighbor; at worst, these neighbors may just have to go looking for a new apartment, now that they know that they’re living next to this horrible case of total lack of human decency.
Here’s a question, what happens when you take a musically knowledgeable person and an annoying neighbor that plays bad music most of the day on repeat and put em’ together in the same building? You get a brilliant literary critique of the faults and the challenges that house music and culture have.
Known as one of the most critically acclaimed pieces of musical critique ever written, the guy who wrote this note would end up being remembered as one of the greatest philosophers in musical history.
The only thing worse than having to wake up early for work is being woken up before you need to be by somebody else. Part of living around other people often involves some degree of having to deal with hearing them go about their daily life, but when you can hear a neighbor’s car alarm going off without end for an entire night, anyone would be justified in leaving a threatening note.
How they’re that heavy of a sleeper is beyond us, but hopefully, the note worked.
Revenge Best Served Cold
Finally! We’ve been waiting for tens of entries to finally meet a brave hero Who stands up to corruption and shows bad neighbors the consequences of their actions. This tough guy got his wet clothes taken out in the middle of their laundry cycle, did they write a poem about it? Heck no, they paid the other person back, twice as hard! It’s an old religious truth, as they say in the holy texts - an eye for an eye, and a wet laundry piece for another frozen laundry piece... if that’s wasn’t enough, this brave neighbor even included their apartment number at the bottom.
Whoever you are that lives at apartment 301, know that you are a hero to disgruntled neighbors all across the world.
There are two possible scenarios plaguing this horrible note: in scenario A, we’ve got an Obama supporter getting crapped on by his neighbor who decided that political activism is more important than basic human decency. We’ve also got scenario B, in which a vandalist actually posted a sticker that is pro Obama on his neighbor's car.
We’re lucky to have politically active neighbors policing what stickers their next-door friends can or can’t have, especially when they refer to themselves as good Samaritans in the same note where they label you as a “total doofus”.
One of the toughest things in judging a neighbor’s complaint is answering the question of whether or not that neighbor is just concerned and well-meaning or if this person is just mentally unstable and looking to vent through complaining and making everyone else miserable.
In this example, we have a neighbor leaving a very distressing note regarding the police and mayor due to the alleged perpetrator “hurting flowers” apparently. Is this a disgruntled neighbor or a peacekeeping environmental Samarian? We really have no idea.
A Music Critic is Born
This neighbor was so inspired by last night’s performance that he decided to post a full review of the neighbors who happened to perform in the same building where he lives. Very lucky dude. We’ll give this guy a 10 out of 10 when it comes to effort and creativity, clearly, this annoyed neighbor pulled out all the stops when writing this sign - from the unique mix of colors, the ever-changing font sizes and the beautiful bold fonts and underlines for easier reading.
This guy should definitely become a music critic, there's clearly a lack of funny and critical voices when it comes to that industry. Who knows, we might just see this person developing a career due to this viral image.
Stomping The Police
It seems every day now we meet yet another person trying to reasonably persuade their neighbors to stop an annoying habit by using poetry and sticky notes. This guy tried using a song by The Police to bolster his chances of succeeding in this endeavor. It’s totally understandable why you would use poetry for your advantage, but what’s not clear is the meaning or purpose behind the XO signature at the bottom of the paper.
Somehow, we are beginning to think that people who write poetry to communicate with their neighbors may not be quite the most socially adept people.
It's not clear what exactly the religious neighbors meant when they referred to the couple’s activities as “godless“. If it means what we think it means, that little girl definitely needs some explaining or hopefully, a good therapist later on. We hope her parents take the time to explain things to her and that she won't be too traumatized when she learns that children don’t necessarily come via stork delivery.
To be honest, in our day and age, it would make more sense than babies come from Amazon prime deliveries then flying white birds. These are strange times indeed.
Public Relationship Issues
Based on the note, it seems the romance has fizzled out, and now all that's left is bad communication and very loud voices.
It's always uncomfortable to realize other people know your private business, so we can’t even begin to imagine how bad it would feel to know the whole building is rooting for you to break up.
Block Me Maybe
Anyone who’s ever owned a parking spot knows the gut-wrenching feeling of having for a parking spot taken by an anonymous vehicle. Emotions usually run crazy due to your inability to do anything about this heavy piece of metal that’s blocking what’s rightfully yours. It’s even worse when somebody’s blocking your car and you literally can’t drive to work. Some people call the police, others resort to vandalism and forced “removal“ of the annoying car in question.
Leaving a note like this usually does the job, so it’s nice that the author also used it as a chance for some creative lyrical exploration.
Unlocked WiFi Connection
If you choose to see the cup half full, you may construe Nick’s note as a genuinely concerned fellow checking up on the welfare of his internet paying next-door neighbors. However, this was most likely the work of a selfish, leeching neighbor with no internet of his own. Either way, this note is a reminder for anyone using Wi-Fi should opt to put a password on it if they don’t want other people to use their Internet.
If you would not leave your own home unlocked with all the doors open, why would you do that when it comes to your Internet connection? No more Wi-Fi for you, Nick!
My Anaconda Note
“There might be a bomb in the building but don't worry it's not armed, probably.” This is as close to what someone reading this will undoubtedly be thinking. The sheer irony is astounding when you claim that you accidentally lost a 7-foot snake and then saying in the next sentence that there's nothing to worry about.
Most likely this was just a prank note meant to scare people into calling this poor Nick fellow, but if it's not, we'd probably prefer to live as far away from this aforementioned Nick as possible.
Everyone occasionally experiences that paranoid feeling when you’re almost sure that you forgot to lock your door. Well, everyone except this neighbor, who just got a very surprising note on his door. Sometimes you forget to lock the door and then slightly punish yourself for it, at least in your head.
This doesn’t always mean you’ll remember the lesson, so we are grateful that this worried neighbor made sure to leave an impression that the apartment owner will never forget.
Getting your bike stolen is one of the most disappointing experiences a teenager can have. Usually, it happens in waves and at particular locations, so it looks like this rapping Neighbor is truly the canary in the coal mine.
Residents of the building are lucky to have a caring neighbor that would take time to warn them of potential theft while also crafting a very entertaining and attention-grabbing note. Did he write it this way to get attention or is he just a very artistic person?
The Lazy Mom
Taking care of kids is not a simple project and takes a very high level of responsibility, patience, and maturity. Every medical professional would advise you to keep your children’s extremities as warm as possible during winter. However, it appears that this mom took a lot more responsibility for herself than for her own children.
We’re not sure why she would make her kids go out barefoot in winter, but it’s a good thing that this courageous neighbor decided to intervene and set her straight.
It’s not clear what sort of party Andre’s neighbor set up that would cause him to act the way he did. We have mixed feelings about this party guest One the one hand, Andre left a cat in this guy's apartment and stole his laptop, but he also had the good sense of apologizing for these incidents the morning after.
It seems that Andre isn’t actually the world’s worst neighbor. At least not once he’s sober. Anyway, he does seem to be sorry for his actions and perfectly willing to take responsibility for everything. we applaud his honesty and hope things work out for the best with his neighbor but we’re not inviting Andre to any event that contains alcohol or drugs anytime soon.
Everyone remembers just how boring and long days are when you’re in middle school. The girl from apartment 346 is going to have the pleasure of going to middle school in just two weeks. She decided to practice her literary abilities by asking her upstairs neighbors to stop stomping on the ground at night.
For some reason, she seems to believe that they are doing it on purpose in order to prevent her from waking up for school. We might not know the story behind their relationship, but based on the girl's writing abilities, we’ll assume that no bad intentions were part of her neighbor’s stomping.
When you find your neighbor consistently neglecting to pick up their pet's feces, the most neighborly thing you can do is to confront them about it, explain the situation and why it’s important to you and your surroundings that they pick up after their pets. If, however, they fail to comply with your demands one too many times, you might have to take things into your own hands (hopefully while wearing sterile gloves). This bothered neighbor knows their strengths and talents as they have probably played on a few ball teams.
Their idea of taking matters into their own hands as well, questionable at best. After seeing that their neighbor was continuously shirking their doody lifting duty, this veteran ballplayer decided to threaten to throw the poop directly into their neighbor's mouth if they ever did it again, as a way to make sure that they don’t repeat this behavior. Gross.
Pound For Pound
There’s a good reason why dog and cat owners are required to have their pets wear collars when they leave their homes. Nobody wants to have a stray dog or cat wandering around near homes of folks with senior citizens or children. They can be quite aggressive and even tend to bite if they are in a foul mood. That would send you straight to the hospital to check for rabies and stuff. But then again, not all un-collared animals are strays.
When this cat was found strolling around without its collar, the neighbor assumed it might just be a stray cat and made sure it was taken to the pound. That wasn’t the action of a pet hater… they were just being responsible! Either way, they did not anticipate their actions to cause such grief to this poor neighbor who had not yet managed to tame their cat.
No Missionaries Allowed
Nobody likes to get a knock on the door from people trying to convert you into their religion. If you’re a religious person, you probably don’t want anyone messing with your beliefs, and if you’re an atheist, then religious missionaries are the last people you wanna hear from.
This neighbor apparently had one too many visits and perhaps took them a bit more personally than they should have. This is what they made to make sure that nobody will ever preach to them about the wondrous acts of Jesus ever again, let alone, dare to knock on their not so godforsaken door again.
Don't Be Like Alan
Sometimes you move into a new apartment - the living room looks fantastic, it’s big, comfortable, and just in great condition overall. After all, this is the place you’ll be spending most of your time in the next year or more, so it’s important that you feel good in it.
Then you notice something’s off. It appears that your exact location makes you the victim of some very unfortunate smells. Many neighbors try to solve this through discourse, some choose to turn into totalitarian dictators like Alan here. The lesson of the day? Don’t be like Alan.
Join the Labor Party
Having a baby is very very painful. The labor process reduces even polite and quiet women into roaring beasts with little to no regard for their environment.
This neighbor wanted to make sure that when his pregnant wife begins going into labor - and consequently making sounds as if she’s being attacked by a bear (or turned herself into a bear), everyone stays calm and that nobody calls the police through all the commotion.
Veterans Party Pooper
There are a few people as widely beloved and appreciated as veterans who have served their country and protected its people. Soldiers coming back from overseas is no small event and it’s expected, even required, to through a great party in celebration. Almost any neighbor would understand and give you a free pass for such a celebration.
However, calling your neighbors “terrorists” for potentially complaining about your noise is a great way to make everyone hate you. The XOXO at the end really is the final nail in this unholy hammer.
Pet Robin Hood
One of the most recent types of crimes to have grown in the last few years is package theft. Ever since Amazon began delivering items straight to your front door, thieves and other lowlifes saw the perfect opportunity to take things that don’t belong to them, without breaking any entrees.
It’s understandable why a thief would be interested in stealing an expensive or electronic item, but we think stealing a pet’s water bottles might be a step too far. It’s thanks to people like this that packages with surprise poop bombs inside them are becoming more popular by the day.
An Unholy Night
The only thing worse than being single and miserable is being single and miserable while hearing the couple above you enjoying their relationship... a little too much, if you know what I mean. Sometimes when a couple gets too romantic, a demon might spawn, requiring a priest to come and perform an exorcism.
When Mark first heard the noises, he thought about getting dressed and running upstairs to save his loving neighbors above from the forces of evil they obviously had summoned. Luckily for Mark, the noises only lasted for two or three minutes though, so he concluded that the exorcism had been successful.
The Purrrfect Pet Peeve
Let’s get this out of the way — it’s really hard for most people to quit smoking. Unfortunately for Mr. Whiskers, he also happened to be addicted to smoking tobacco products. While trying to quit the habit, he was negatively surprised when cigarette butts started appearing on his balcony. This kicked the habit right back and this time it would be a much bigger challenge to quit.
Luckily for Mr. Whiskers, his owner had no problem stepping in and to make sure that his favorite feline was sticking to his rehab schedule and stood up the neighbors who were causing all those setbacks. P.s. no cats were harmed in the making of this note. It is strictly sar-cat-stic.
The first entry on our loud stomping neighbors list included alleged dinosaurs, or next one included Hagrid the tame giant from Harry Potter, finally, we’ve reached the third entry where elephants are blamed. As much as we sympathize with anyone who has loud stomping neighbors, we can’t help but marvel at the idea of a world where you can have extinct creatures, large mammals and fantasy characters living above your head.
Oh well, until then, please keep the stomping to a minimum kind, sir.
Look, Bob, I've Painted My Fence!
We really hope that Bob can appreciate the time and effort it takes to paint a fence. Our brave painter must have gone all the way to the store to pick up that paint! If that wasn’t enough, they even took the time to practice their artistic abilities by drawing a smiley at the end of their wonderful statement. And it was all for Bob.
Anyway, the fence looks great, the neighbors are happy and the entire neighborhood is a better place now due to the colors of this wonderful fence. Isn’t having neighbors just wonderful?
If you’re the type of person that orders 30 rolls of toilet paper on Amazon, it would only make sense that you would also be the kind of guy that takes comfort in poetic vengeance via a cleverly written note. What we’re not sure of, though, is where exactly did he or she put the note, considering the package was already taken.
We are assuming that the writer of the note was expecting that the thief would return to the scene of the crime, in which case it would’ve probably been better to just put in a security camera for the possible events of next time.
Pink Flamingo Attack
This picture creates a lot more questions than it answers. Why did the neighbor call the police? Why pink flamingos? it’s quite a mystery. One of the qualities we look for in a good neighbor is being communicative and talking to your neighbors respectfully and honestly when disagreements come up.
Unlike the neighbor that comes up in this guy's note. Maybe, and this is just speculation, your neighbor didn’t want to speak with you because you’re a crazy, flamingo scattering, psycho. Well, at least now that his yard is full of pink flamingos, he's probably a lot calmer about the whole police incident.
Who Let the Cats Out?
It's unclear how many times this poor lady's cats have attempted an escape before this picture was taken. Dogs are domesticated features and love their owners, they would usually stay in the apartment unless they had a good reason to leave. Cats, on the other hand, are much more self-sufficient.
Why would she not let her cats leave the apartment? This is a strange lady indeed. I wonder how many cats have escaped this apartment so far...
When the ‘Lady of the House’ first read the note written by her neighbor, that was the moment she realized that there may be a reenactment of the popular TV show True Crime with her as the lead actress coming soon. Maybe we don't understand the context behind this note, but this looks as close to "holy crap, my neighbor is an absolute psychopath” as one could possibly imagine within a reasonably well-written note.
We suggest that this lady starts waving at her neighbor as soon as possible. You do not want to incur the wrath of the waveless, especially not in a face-to-face encounter.
