A man was left red-faced after a neighbour put a note through his door requesting that he should have quieter sex.
Stephen Cunningham, 26, was reminded that ‘sound travels’ by a polite and anonymous neighbour in his block of flats in Glasgow.
‘I woke up yesterday morning and it had been slipped under my door,’ he told the Daily Record. ‘I woke up at 8:30 am so they must have come early to make sure I was asleep.
‘I was rolling on the floor laughing while reading it, I was mortified.
‘At first, I thought it was about something to do with the close. My pals told me to buy my neighbours earplugs.
‘I just don’t know which neighbour sent it and I don’t really want to know to be honest.’
The note reads: ‘Dear neighbour, just a friendly note from your neighbour to remind you the walls in these buildings are thin and sound can travel.
‘While we appreciate that it is inevitable that we will hear neighbours at times, we want to make you aware that we can hear more than we should.
‘I’m sure you will agree that we all must be considerate and respectful of our neighbours, we don’t want to be sharing your intimate and private moments with you.
‘Therefore we politely ask if you could please keep the noise down at night. Please be mindful that you have neighbours in a building where sound travels.
‘Thanks for understanding.’
Stephen shared the note on Twitter with the caption: ‘Not me waking up to a “have sex quieter” note from my neighbours. Mortified.’
‘I sent my boyfriend a text immediately,’ Stephen added.
