PHOTO: You Won't Believe What This Woman's Neighbour Wrote To Her...


Published at 10:23am 17th May 2016.

A note left for a neighbour has gained the attention of millions.

It is after a man named Malcolm left the note which said: “Think you might have had a parcel delivery left by your side gate. Saw some gypsies pinch it. Would have stopped them if you had been nicer neighbours. Malcolm.”

It appears that the neighbours may not see eye to eye.

The photo was posted on photo sharing site Imgur and Reddit where it has been viewed more than 2.5 million times.

People have taken to the comments to find out more about mystery man and what could possibly be wrong with his neighbours.

One said: “Are all British people passive aggressive?"

Another Imgur user thinks there’s a hidden meaning in the note: “If Malcolm really didn’t care, he wouldn’t even have put this note up. Malcolm is reaching out; take his hand in the friendship he offers.”

On Reddit however, the story gets unravelled.

One user commented: “Right. Just to clarify and confirm that Malcolm isn't a d***, really. They have quite a good relationship, love-love kind of relationship. Malcolm was messing around."

"There was no parcel by her gate. Although now I am thinking he might be a bit of a d*** after all - got her all excited for nothing."

The user later returns with an update: “Found out that Malcolm and his wife are actually quite a funny couple. They are retired and apparently spend their days tormenting my friend for their own pleasure. I have asked for more stuff by Malcolm.”

After the update, many are now claiming they’re in the Malcolm fan club.

Nice one Malcolm.
