These Hilarious Notes Are The Epitome Of Passive Aggressiveness

Lending a neighbor a cup of sugar or returning packages delivered to you accidentally are just some of the unwritten rules about being a good neighbor. There’s also being tolerant and understanding about some of the weirder things your neighbors might get up to. All the same, there’s only so much you can take before your neighbor’s offenses get under your skin. Telling them off is a fantastic way to solve things, but no one likes those kinds of conversations. The best solution to these things is writing a well-worded note to point out what’s wrong and just hope that it gets the message across.

Save Yourself From Retaliation

One of the worst things for someone who’s a pet lover is to live next door to someone who owns a dog. For one, dogs aren’t the quietest of pets. What’s worse, is when the owner isn’t very responsible. Having to clean up dog excrements from your lawn is not what you’d want to be doing.

Save Yourself From Retaliation

Save Yourself From Retaliation

This disgruntled neighbor clearly had enough and did not hold it back. They decided to write this note and throw in some imaginative sentiments on the matter. We hope that the dog owner got their pet under control. Otherwise, it looks like they might get caught up in a stinky situation.

Don’t Wave At Him

One survey done by Gleeden, a dating site for married people, discovered that approximately 71% of men fantasize about having affairs with their neighbors. That’s why we can imagine that this woman wasn’t having it when the friendly woman from across the hall would wave at her husband.

Don't Wave At Him

Don’t Wave At Him

We know a simple wave is harmless, so we can’t understand why the writer of this note was so angry. In fact, she was so angry that she felt the need to write a letter to the neighbor to confront her about it.

Spooky Season

Halloween is a time when you’ll have spooky decorative items all over the place, including the signature pumpkins. Well, did you know that the rate of pumpkin theft is on the rise as we speak? It’s getting really bad.

Spooky Season

Spooky Season

The person who wrote this note knew full well that they weren’t going to get their pumpkin back. All they hoped was that the culprit would ‘rott’. Of course, it’s a pun and a brilliant one at that. Maybe they just meant that the pumpkin should rot and become useless to the thief.

Ray Of Sunshine

Most pet owners who happen not to be very considerate don’t pick up after their pets when out for a walk. No one wants to have their day ruined by stepping in something nasty. That’s why this neighbor decided to speak up.

Ray Of Sunshine

Ray Of Sunshine

They did so in a very creative way. They sarcastically thanked the offender for leaving them an unwelcome ray of sunshine. After taking the time to doodle around the waste, we’d like to believe this made the impact they wanted it to.

Waste Of Effort

As a neighbor, there are some thoughtful things you can do on a regular basis, like picking up your neighbor’s newspaper that’s ended up on your lawn and putting it on their front porch instead. At times, an act of kindness can fall a little short.

Waste Of Effort

Waste Of Effort

This person, for instance, decided to clean up what we assume was their pet’s waste from their neighbor’s driveway. However, they followed this by wasting all that effort and leaving the bag right next to their neighbor’s garbage can. Why?

Surveillance Cameras

When we thought we’ve seen everything, this happens. This homeowner couldn’t take picking up another scoop of waste left by a dog on their lawn. So, they decided to take action. If the sign is to be believed, they have surveillance cameras recording at all times.

Surveillance Cameras

Surveillance Cameras

We can sympathize with the homeowners who’ve had to clean up after dogs for too long. Their course of action was to let dog owners know that they’re being watched – always. We can’t help but wonder if they’ve stayed true to their word and sent their grandson over to offenders.

Stay In The Line

It’s a known fact that parking is one of the biggest problems that lead to disagreements between people in general, but especially neighbors. You can always let it go when you find your neighbor’s car parked in your spot or taking up more than one space.

Stay In The Line

Stay In The Line

But when it becomes a habit, you have every right to speak up about it. This culprit got a visual reference instructing them how to stay within their parking lines inside their own spot. The person who wrote the note also pointed out that they didn’t care about any of the other spots so long as the person keeps out of space “C”.

Wrong Identity

There are those nosy people who always seem to be consumed by something that’s going on in their neighborhood. Thes kinds of people are always looking for ways to save the day. One great example is this self-appointed detective who went ahead and launched a case to get to the bottom of a parking mystery.

Wrong Identity

Wrong Identity

The biggest problem is that they thought they were dealing with a parking thief. However, they didn’t do their research properly. They left a harshly-worded note only to find out that the car belonged to one of the neighbors.

Don’t Blame Me

The worst thing that can happen is getting accused of something that you didn’t actually do in the first place. Especially when the accusation comes from your neighbors. That’s exactly what happened to this man who received a note from his neighbor asking him to park in a more considerate way.

Don't Blame Me

Don’t Blame Me

He wasted no time in responding. He wrote back a note apologizing on behalf of his wife, who was the actual driver. Whether or not his wife was really the culprit, she was probably not happy with her husband for telling on her.

Coloring Inside The Lines

By the time a toddler is three years old, they would typically start learning to make use of their fine motor skills. One way to help them with that is by giving them all kinds of coloring books to practice on.

Coloring Inside The Lines

Coloring Inside The Lines

Just imagine being told that you’re no better than a toddler who just started coloring inside the lines. It’s pretty hurtful. The person who wrote this note clearly implied that the driver was no better than a toddler. In fact, the writer was nice enough to leave behind a cute little coloring project for the driver.

Living In The Stone Age

Having noisy neighbors in an apartment in one of the worst things. They’re another group of people who tend to ruffle feathers wherever they go. We’re talking about those who are constantly dragging furniture around or heavily stomping their feet around the house.

Living In The Stone Age

Living In The Stone Age

At times, these sounds are easy to avoid become unbearable after a while. You can’t help but wonder if they’re living in the Stone Age somehow. That’s when this person wrote this glorious note implying that their upstairs neighbors are wearing literal stone shoes.

Warning For The Rooster

You’d think that you would never come across a rooster anywhere other than a farm or in the countryside. Nowadays, people keep the weirdest pets in the suburbs and even in the city. This includes very noisy roosters.

Warning For The Rooster

Warning For The Rooster

This note was a pre-warning to a rooster owner. It stated that if they were unable to tame their roosters, then the worst would happen. It’s really dark if you ask us. We can’t help but wonder if that rooster is still around…

Good Fences

We all have that one neighbor who reminds us constantly to tend to our overgrown lawn or trim the branches of our trees. It’s even worse when they threaten us with sanctions for all these neglected elements.

Good Fences

Good Fences

This person clearly had it with their neighbor Bob who kept telling them to paint their fence. Well, we agree that their fence could use a fresh coat of paint. All the same, we’re sure Bob would still argue that it was done badly.

Ice Cold

Some people really have some nerve! If you find yourself saying something along those lines to yourself, you might be on resident 301’s side in this case. All they wanted to do was their laundry in their apartment building.

Ice Cold

Ice Cold

Someone decided their laundry was somehow more important and took out 301’s clothes in the middle of the cycle to put in their own. When 301 got back to check on their laundry, they chose to get revenge.

A Life Lived Out

On the other side of the coin, some neighbors load the dryer and then leave their clothing inside for a ridiculous amount of time. Max here from 3F had to move someone’s clothes for that reason. He was nice enough to explain his actions, however.

A Life Lived Out

A Life Lived Out

We very much admire Max’s creativity with this carefully crafted note. He even went so far as including some cool little drawings at the bottom for an extra touch. His description of the amount of time he’d waited to use the dryer is nothing short of hilarious.

Falling Short

Judy seemed to be a very angry woman. Her anger must stem from having to endure the consequences of Peter’s actions. All she’s asking him is to be more mindful and stop using his washing machine! It shorts out all her appliances.

Falling Short

Falling Short

We can understand her problem, but we have to ask: why should Peter not do laundry? If it’s a wiring problem, then Judy’s note should be sent to the building’s superintendent instead. The first note was clearly not enough for Judy as she went ahead and put up a second one. This time, she claimed that this complaint was from everyone in the building, not just her.

No Feeding Squirrels

If you happen to be a homeowner, then you know just how much there is to deal with when owning a house. This includes tiny intruders who wreak havoc on gardens nearby. Since squirrels are adorable, no one can really resist throwing them something to nibble on occasionally.

No Feeding Squirrels

No Feeding Squirrels

This person posted a note warning others not to feed the squirrels since they make their way into this person’s garden every single time. We wonder if it would be so bad if the peanuts buried in the garden would sprout into trees. What do you think?

Trash Day

Trash days are on Friday – not Saturday. At least that’s the way things are in this person’s neighborhood. Unfortunately, there are neighbors in his area who didn’t really get the hang of things when it comes to trash pick-up. They simply leave their trash outside from Saturday to the next pick-up day.

Trash Day

Trash Day

The one who wrote this note went a step further in explaining and included some drawings to specify all that could go wrong when a smelly pile of garbage would sit out. Doing so would sit out and attract different animals, including hawks. Apparently, hawks abduct small dogs. Protect the dogs.

Bad Vibrations

Pretty much everyone has thought of the idea of making it big and becoming famous somehow. These ambitions start from garage bands set up in the neighborhood at times. For the most part, these bands don’t make it very far. They just end up being a nuisance to the neighbors.

Bad Vibrations

Bad Vibrations

No one wants to hear about how bad their playing is. However, the person who wrote this note was nice enough to suggest ways the band could improve their sound and get better at what they do. At least that.

Going Into Labor

There’s no doubt that we’re all noisy neighbors at some point or another. The weird noises that come out of neighbor’s apartments tend to pique our curiosity every once in a while. All the same, it can get annoying.

Going Into Labor

Going Into Labor

Daniel just wanted to get ahead of things, so he wrote this note to explain the source of the questionable sounds that will be heard from his apartment. Honestly, that only makes it sound creepier. The neighbor who got this note called the police just to tell them Daniel’s side of the story.

Very Creepy

As a society, we tend to be rather paranoid. This van parked outside certainly does not help the situation. Just imagine if this van parked right in front of your house. You would have every right to try and have the owner move it somewhere else.

Very Creepy

Very Creepy

Even though they tried not to come off offensive, this person doesn’t beat around the bush, they get straight to the point. They simply told the van owner that the car creeps them out a lot in a direct way.

Cold-Hearted

The Grinch might just be living next door to this person. In this case, they might just want to put a damper on every single joyful thing in the world. That’s what we think after seeing the note that they wrote.

Cold Hearted

Cold Hearted

It’s rather difficult to imagine anyone who would complain about the joyful sounds of kids playing, but there’s always one. We have a feeling that the police wouldn’t side with this guy if it did get to that point.

Mixed Signals

After garage bands, living next door to someone who has a drum set is one of the most annoying things you can deal with. Drum players seem to think that the louder the play, the better their music will sound.

Mixed Signals

Mixed Signals

One neighbor in this apartment had an issue with the loud drums and spoke up about it. However, another neighbor who had no problem with the drums encouraged the drummer to continue playing. Now it’s up to the player to decide who to listen to.

Coming For You

We can’t imagine a church being the scene of a crime. It just seems like such an oxymoron, wouldn’t you say so? Church-goers are typically a certain type of person in our eyes. And that type of person wouldn’t do something like this.

Coming For You

Coming For You

This church-goer was not about to forgive the culprit who stole their grey bike. We have a feeling the clergy at this church would really approve of this author’s choice of words. All the same, everyone has their limit.

Getting The Point Across

No one wants to lose sleep or even be irritated by the sound of a dog that simply will not stop barking. Anger can really cause people to act irrationally at times. Well, this guy really had enough and did something about it. He wrote it out on his neighbor’s house.

Getting The Point Across

Getting The Point Across

While it’s a funny way of expressing his anger, we have a feeling that the homeowner won’t get the joke as much since they’ll have to clean it up. Either way, this message is one that’s hard to ignore or brush off.
