- Neighbor has caused indignation after sending an anonymous letter to a mother
- Letter told the mother of Queensland that her neighbors would keep “noise diary”
- Threatening note said “high squeaking and screaming” had deteriorated
- The furious receiver said after reading the note that she had trouble keeping her cool
A fed up neighbor caused indignation after she sent an anonymous letter to a mother about the constant ‘high squeaking’ of her disabled child.
The threatening letter told the Queensland mother that if she couldn’t get a hold of the screams, the neighbor would keep a “daily noise diary” that would be sent to the council.
“Although we understand that children can sometimes be noisy, screams have gotten worse for many months,” the letter sent earlier this week said.
A mother from Queensland has shared a letter alerting her to further action if she does not prevent her disabled child from ‘squeaking’
The letter that was simply quoted from “your neighbor” said the situation had deteriorated and caused fatigue among fellow residents and also affected their daily lives.
“The policy on noise complaints from the Council outlines that it is appropriate … this problem and this complaint are brought to your attention to improve it,” the neighbor added.
‘If this does not happen, then the council will ask for a daily noise diary, with sound dibels sent to them as part of this noise complaint.
“They will contact you and may cause a fine.”
The letter, simply addressed to “your neighbor,” said the constant screeching and screaming “had an impact on daily life” and left them tired
The furious recipient shared the letter online and asked other members of a Facebook support group how to keep her head cool in response to the complaint.
“Give me an idea how to respond correctly to this letter without using the colorful words I think of,” the mother said.
Many users of the group where the letter was published chose the side of the mother and said she could not be expected to check her disabled child.
Another added: “I would respond with the Disability Discrimination Act. Print it out and put it in an envelope and put it in mailboxes. People are terrible. “
A social media user said it was not her neighbor’s business to know the details of her child’s disability and to call the municipality itself.
“They don’t care unless you want them to know,” they said.
