Neighbour Sends Letter Demanding Mum Only Lets Her Kids Outside For 15 Minutes A Day

A neighbour has been slammed online after a letter was shared which revealed the person had been demanding that the mum next door make sure she only let her kids outside to play for 15 minutes a day so that the kids’ giggling wouldn’t upset their dog. 

A screenshot of a letter has been shared online which a mum was sent by her neighbour, which claims that her child’s “giggling” was becoming “very disruptive” to their dogs.

The woman, who appears to be based in the US, couldn’t believe what she had read and posted it onto Twitter. She captioned the post: “Yes this is real.”

It read: “Dear ‘neighbour’, You moved to the neighbourhood a year ago and I wanted to give you time to correct this problem on your own, but you are apparently too inconsiderate to do so.

“Every day this week, when the weather has been nice and windows are open, you proceed to let your small child run free in your backyard and laugh and giggle and carry on without end.

“This is very disruptive for my two dogs and my bird who sits next to the window and like to look in your yard.

“Perhaps you could ask him to tone it down a bit, or at least limit his outside time to 15 – 20 minutes a day so my dogs can be outside without seeing him running around.”

However, this wasn’t the end of the note as it then took a much more serious tone by adding that the neighbour would potentially take the matter further if the mum didn’t comply.

It finished: “If this kind of behaviour persists, I WILL CALL THE POLICE!”

Despite the letter not being substantiated, it has received over 62,000 likes and over 6,500 retweets from shocked readers.

One person wrote: “Let them call the police. The police could use a good laugh.”

Another joked: “Let that person call the police. They are going to look insane.  Give your child large, loud musical instruments or pots and pans to bang!!!”

This comes not long after an NHS worker was left shocked after she received a letter from her neighbour in which she was branded ‘selfish’.
