Passive aggressive neighbours' note


Just saw this by the front door and found it hilarious.

We are getting married!
On Friday 15.05.2020 so can we PLEASE have your understanding if we are loud.
Now I'm wondering what kind of party they're going to have (max 5 people, 2m distance?), or if it's just a warning for their first honeymoon night

Re: Passive aggressive neighbours' note

"Dear neighbours, congratulations. However I'd like to point out a little mistake in your friendly letter towards us, we cannot find the time we are expected to join the party, if we hear nothing we'll show up at 20:00, thx and looking forward to a great evening"

Kudos to them for not cancelling the wedding because of Corona!

Re: Passive aggressive neighbours' note

I think it's a great opportunity to save on the wedding, even the modest one may cost easily several tens of thousands, and doing it now you avoid embarrassing or making anyone angry.

Re: Passive aggressive neighbours' note

Actually, if the gathering limit is 5, then you cannot even invite parents from both sides, as it would be 6 then... I guess they meant a proper honeyboom.

Was there any strangely lightweight discreet package in the corridor lately?

They're not even from our building! No idea who they are (there are a few buildings in the neighborhood)
