It can often be embarrassing receiving a note from next door asking you to keep the noise down.
And for one man, he certainly felt that shame when he was handed a message from his neighbours.
Posting on Twitter, the user known as @zef2def, described how he felt mortified after receiving the note.
In the message, it said: “Dear both, could you please fix your bed?
“The walls are very thin in this building and we don’t really want to know when you are having sex.
“This issue concerns new flats. Many thanks in advance! Your neighbours.”
The social media user captioned the post: “I am mortified,” which has since gone viral online.
It racked up 600 retweets and 18,900 likes since it was shared on Wednesday.
One joked: “Runs to the shop to buy oil to fix squeak,” another praised: “Me and my husband just LAUGHED OUT LOUD.”
A third commented: “I’m dead hahaha,” and a fourth wrote: “Be even louder next time.”
While a fifth commented: “‘This issue concerns a few flats’. Oh my God, have they all been talking to each other about this?!”
The man later clarified a few points from the message he received from his neighbours.
Replying to a Twitter user, he said: “I don’t have a squeaky bed, it’s the headboard getting slammed into the wall.”
Meanwhile, this isn’t the first note to go viral in recent weeks.
Previously, a motorist was left reeling after finding a sarcastic note on a car “admiring parking”.
