Returning home from holiday is never much fun. Swapping sun for drizzle, heading back to the office, and unpacking, getting back to normal life can be a drag.

So we can only imagine how one homeowner felt after they returned from a six-week trip to find a particularly grumpy note had been shoved through their letter box.

The letter in question has certainly got tongues wagging, and it’s easy to see why.

Earlier this week, Australian Facebook page The Bell Tower Times posted a photo of the typed-out letter alongside the caption: “Getting back from a six-week holiday to find cute love letters.”

The image was liked more than 6,000 times and over 3,000 comments racked up beneath the snap, with the letter in question reading: “Your garden is a disgrace! 

“You should be ashamed. The previous owners kept it immaculate. It devalues your property and the values of properties in the surrounding areas.”

It didn’t take long for people to pile on, with one social media user commenting: “Probably had every intention of catching up with the yard work until they read this note.”

Another noted: “How did they know their neighbour wasn’t in hospital or something, what? How rude.”

“I’m sure the neighbours think the same thing about my place. At least they keep it to themselves,” penned a third person, with a fourth adding: “Is it bad to say my stubbornness would be so triggered? This would set in motion at least a three-month gardening strike.”

A fifth quipped: “No way I would tidy up in a hurry after that. Let it grow a little first, just so the weeds can spread their wings.”

And, although pretty irritating, the note doesn’t come close to the one left by a particularly hot-headed person back in 2018 when their neighbour’s bathroom floor had collapsed.

At the time, Keli Thomson had returned home from work to discover that disaster had struck at home, and with her landlord away, had no choice but to organise a total bathroom refitting herself.

According to The Mirror, Keli’s garden was quickly filled up as repair works got underway, prompting one of her neighbours to leave her a note saying: “Move the rubbish from your garden.

“We’ve taken photos of the mess. If all the mess isn’t removed over the weekend, all the evidence will be passed to Edinburgh council.”

Not having any of it, Keli fired back with a note of her own, writing: “Dear Angry Sir/Madame, thank you for making me aware of the rubbish in my garden! I had no idea but your passive aggressive threatening note made me notice - HORAY!

"Just to inform you my bathroom floor has been sinking so got done in an emergency without a skip - bummer for you, right?

"Landlord is currently using my rent money sunning up in Italy (jealous) whilst I deal with this, so sadly until his return no rubbish will be moved."

Total boss move!
