A woman was left mortified after an anonymous neighbor sent her a note warning her that they could “see everything” when she was in the shower.
Sarah Yates, 26, of Stockport, received a letter from a stranger on Friday telling her that the new light fixtures she had fitted in her bathroom meant they could see her shower. Manchester Evening News reports.
The note, posted through her letterbox while on vacation in Rhodes, Greece, explained that the neighbors decided not to knock on the front door to let them know they would not be embarrassed.
It said, ‘Hi, you need to put blinds in your bathroom. When you shower, you can see everything. I didn’t mean to embarrass you by knocking, thank you.’

The property is Sarah’s first home, which she shares with her cousin, and she recently had the bathroom redone, including new lighting.
She assumed the frosted glass window in the ground floor bathroom would provide enough protection to prevent people from seeing in.
To make sure people couldn’t see in, Sarah said she even stood outside in the yard to see how many people can see in when the lights are on.
But her neighbors clearly saw more than she realized.
Sarah recently bought her first house and had the bathroom redone, including new brighter lights that seem to make her more visible when she’s in the shower. Pictured: The bathroom window from outside (left) and inside (right)

Sarah said, “The previous owner had an old bathroom and a dimmer switch, so they must not have seen them shower before.
“I’ve put in a new suite and installed spots that are quite bright, so it must have made a difference to what they can see.
“It’s only our contours that you can see, but of course they don’t want to see that through their window.”
Instead, she now plans to put some plants in front of the window to block the view in the shower.
