These people just demonstrated the worst possible way to welcome new neighbors.

Dear people of the world,

I know we’ve had this discussion before, but apparently it still hasn’t totally caught on:

Anonymous notes are a no-no. Always. No excuses. No exceptions.

If you can’t say something to someone’s face, you shouldn’t say it all. Or, at the very least, you should just bitch about it behind their back like a normal, respectable person.

Who do you think you are?

If you need (yet another) example of why passive-aggressive behaviour always ends in tears for everyone, let the following case act as a cautionary tale.

A local man was angry because a car he didn’t recognise stole his parking spot.

Fair to be pissed off? Yes. Fair to leave a note? No. (See? We’re learning!)

The man decided to leave a note anyway, because he had not read this helpful guide to being a functioning member of society.

"You don't live here," the note read. "Don't f***ing park here!!!"

Note the three exclamation marks, because the local man was very passive and very aggressive.

Unfortunately for the local man in question, he was wrong: the owners of that car did, in fact, live there - they'd just moved in next door.

"Nice to meet you!" They wrote back. "I'm your new neighbour!"

Full marks for a sassy response, neighbour, and an excellent example of the only time it's acceptable to write an anonymous note: when someone else did it first and you want to demonstrate on social media what a loser they are.

The moral of the story? Don't be an anonymous bully, people of the world.

You're so much better than that.
