‘I woke up at 8:30am so they must have come early to make sure I was asleep.
‘I was rolling on the floor laughing while reading it, I was mortified.
‘At first I thought it was about something to do with the close. My pals told me to buy my neighbours earplugs.
‘I just don’t know which neighbour sent it and I don’t really want to know to be honest.’
The note reads: ‘Dear neighbour, just a friendly note from your neighbour to remind you the walls in these buildings are thin and sound can travel.
‘While we appreciate that it is inevitable that we will hear neighbours at times, we want to make you aware that we can hear more than we should.
‘I’m sure you will agree that we all must be considerate and respectful of our neighbours, we don’t want to be sharing your intimate and private moments with you.
‘Therefore we politely ask if you could please keep the noise down at night. Please be mindful that you have neighbours in a building where sound travels.
‘Thanks for understanding.’
Stephen shared the note on Twitter with the caption: ‘Not me waking up to a “have sex quieter” note from my neighbours. Mortified.’
‘I sent my boyfriend a text immediately,’ Stephen added.
‘He just laughed though and over the course of the day with everyone commenting and laughing on Twitter I quickly got over the embarrassment.
‘I moved in last September to the block of flats. It could be upstairs, downstairs, left or right that are complaining. Whoops!
‘Anytime I’ve met any of the neighbours they’ve been lovely though and the letter was very, very polite.
‘I feel like it took them a while to word it properly which is nice.
‘There’s no hard feelings, I understand people don’t want to hear all the details but also everyone does it.’
