“We Sent A Letter To Our Neighbors Politely Asking To Make Less Noise… This Is How They Replied”

A yellow envelope that reads, "To neighbours."

When these Londoners sent their neighbors a letter requesting that they keep the noise down in the mornings, they weren’t expecting such a sweet reply! Martina Panchetti, an Italian woman living in England, shared the cutest video on social media. In it, she showed her followers the message she received in response to her mild complaint. It was way too cute!

“We sent a letter to our neighbours politely asking to make less noise (they’re a family with kids) and possibly avoid playing piano too early in the morning,” wrote Martina in her caption. “This is how they replied.”

She proceeded to show some pictures of the apology letter her neighbors replied with. First of all, Martina held up the envelope to demonstrate that it was embellished with a really cute planet Earth sticker. Then, she opened it up to reveal the contents. It turns out that the neighbor family’s small kids actually wrote the note!

These neighbors had the sweetest reply.

“Dear neighbours,” the letter read. “Thank you for your kind message. We realise that sometimes we can be noisy and naughty. We started learning piano and our teachers tell us to practice every day. But we sincerely apologise not considering the times of day and the weekends.”

The kids also admitted to disobeying their mother, who had been asking them not to play the piano at those times.

“We promise YOU and we promise our mommy to try to be more considerate,” they continued.

However, this adorable letter wasn’t the only apology these thoughtful neighbors sent over. They also included some treats from their country! Martina was truly touched.

“On our way to cook some Italian sweets for them,” she wrote in the caption of her video.

What a wholesome way to respond! If anything, this exchange has probably strengthened the bond between these neighbors.
