Neighbor leaves a note to mum asking that she remove her washing line from it because it “looks tacky”. But she replies with a scathing email.

  • After being told that her washing was ‘tacky’, a mum in Melbourne was left stunned.
  • The woman was asked not t dry her clothes on the line in her back yard.
  • She wrote a scornful letter to her neighbour in response. 

A mum vented her anger at a neighbour who asked her to stop drying clothes on the washing machine because it ‘looks tacky.

The handwritten note, addressed to the tenant, shocked the mother of Melbourne.

“Is your washing machine dry?” It looks tacky. 

But rather than removing her washing as instructed, the furious mother responded with a note.

A mum has unleashed her fury on an 'insensitive' neighbour who asked her to stop drying her clothes outside on the washing line because it 'looks tacky'

A mum has unleashed her fury upon an ‘insensitive neighbour’ who asked her to stop drying her clothes outside on the washer line because it ‘looks too tacky’

The note from the mum, which featured a Nicolas Cage meme at the top, asked the neighbour if their “humanity is broken”.

She goes on to explain to us that not everyone can afford clothes dryers and large power bills. 

She also pointed out that not everyone was able to hang their laundry, return it in, and then put it away within a reasonable time frame.

She wrote that her attitude was not only tacky, but also insensitive to the well-being of your neighbours.

She posted photos of both notes to Reddit, where people were more than happy with her approach.

Many were shocked that someone would complain about someone else’s washing machine. 

Others were less sympathetic, and said that many apartments had rules that prohibited washing outside. 

One man said, “I agree but, it isn’t a great look.” 

She hit back with a note of her own, calling her neighbours insensitive as well as tacky

She reacted with a note of her very own, calling her neighbours tacky and insensitive.

Another person posted an excerpt from an 1861s etiquette book that ‘explains’ why washing should not be done outside.

The guide stated that children exposed to unmentionables and hanging undergarments can have traumatic consequences on their lives and decrease their ability to be a desirable partner as they get older. 

Others suggested ways of ‘improvering’ the washing in order to make it less offensive to neighbours.

To make it more attractive, you could add flashing Christmas lights to your horse’s clothes and a wind chime. It’ll be soo much more appealing for them,’ one woman wrote. 

Another suggestion was to paint the woman and lie down on the grass screaming “I am a towel” at 30-second intervals.

They advised that they should quickly’sort out the problem’.

Others suggested she ignore it and continue to do her laundry as she wanted.
