Spring is a time when children love to play outside in the garden, and who would begrudge them a little frolicking in the sunshine? For one angry neighbour in Arizona, outdoor play and laughter is awful enough for them to consider it a criminal offence. Take a look at this anonymous letter that was shoved through the door of a US parent and later shared on Reddit.

“Dear “Neighbour”

You just moved into this neighbourhood a year ago, and I wanted to give you time to correct this problem on your own, but you are apparently too inconsiderate to do so.

Every day this week, when the weather has been nice and windows are open, you proceed to let your small child run free in your backyard and laugh and giggle and carry on without end.

This is very disruptive for my two dogs and my bird who sits next to the window and likes to look into your yard.

Perhaps you could ask him to tone it down a bit, or at least limit his outside time to 15-20 mins a day so my dogs can be outside without seeing him running around.

If this kind of behaviour persists, I WILL CALL THE POLICE!”
