The hidden message a couple found scrawled inside their bathroom wall.

Most stories about people finding things inside the walls of their home don’t end well. We’ve all seen enough crime dramas to know that.

But for American couple Alex and Jess Monney, the discovery was anything but Law & Order material.

The pair were renovating the bathroom of their Californian home when a contractor found a sassy message from previous owners scrawled on the chipboard.

“Hi! We’re the Shinsekis. We remodelled this bathroom summer 1995. If you’re reading this, that means you’re remodelling the bathroom again,” the message reads.

“What’s wrong with the way we did it?!?!?”

Pinned alongside the note was a photograph of a man and woman, as well as one of their bunny, “Cassie”.

“Hi! I’m Cassie the Bunny Rabbit,” the caption read. “I lived here too! (I’m potty trained!)”

(Yes, apparently you can toilet-train a rabbit. We googled it.)


Jess Monney wrote that the discovery made her day, and her husband confirmed that they too will include their own note within the wall before their reno is complete.

In the meantime, the search is on for the Shinsekis. I mean, after the shade in that scrawl you can hardly blame the Monneys for wanting validation on their design choices.

And if the following reply is accurate, they may not have to wait all that long.

Fingers crossed they like what the Monneys have done with the place.
