FYI from your neighbors across the way

May 14th, 2012 · 42 comments

Nicola in Edinburgh woke up and opened the shades one morning to discover this message from the flat directly across the street. “After all my flatmates were questioned about what they have been up to last night, we decided it must be the flat next to ours,” she says.

2nd Floor We can see you shagging

    That provides excellent scope for multi-level, multi-flat note wars.

    “T.F.F. – GET A BATHROBE”

    “SECOND STOREY TOILET – PLEASE CLOSE YOUR BLINDS, OR IMPROVE YOUR WIPING TECHNIQUE (IT’S PUT ME OFF MY COCO POPS)”

    Let battle commence!

      Since the note doesn’t display disapproval or disgust, I would think the response would read something like “Sorry, we don’t do threesomes.”

    9.8; 9.7; 10.0 ;

    Well it’s good to see traditional rug-making techniques are alive and well in Edinburgh.

      I live in Edinburgh and have to admit, if you live in one of these tenement flats, you’ve definitely heard, if not also seen, your neighbours having sex. The walls are thin, the streets are narrow and you often look right into other people’s flats. Many of those people come home drunk and forget to shut their curtains.

      Stop looking? I live n them too and i’ve never seen (or heard) anyone have sex! (not all the tenements have the same shitty walls) but if you see a naked person look away, you perv!

      I’m not a perv to look out my window at night and happen to see naked people fornicating. It’s not as if I continue to stand there are watch their every move. Most tenements do have thin walls, as do all old buildings, and even if they’ve been remodelled, you still hear everything through the fireplaces.

      It might be a good idea to observe. One could learn something new.

      i think if someone is leaving their curtains wide open, there’s a possibility they want to be seen? it seems like the sign was made for the amusement factor more than anything else.

      Haha no credit needed. The subjects of the sign were the flat to your right. They were obviously loving the attention of regularly going at it (rather violently I might add) in front of their window. We were imagining the whole of our side of the street cheering them on. (Sorry to anyone who was enjoying the show by the way but we couldn’t resist.) We got a response sign from your side of the street too! Not from the couple sadly :( They saw it though, haven’t seen their wobbly exertions since.

    You Brits crack me up. :) (I love the word shag, it’s awesome).

    I’m also amused by the way the note writer writes; the Gs are written helvetica style with the tail in both directions.

    If that’s the same flat I think it is, then it’s in Montague Street. I was in the room when my brother saw one of the occupants (idiot student type) get his dick out while standing at the window and have a lazy wank; shat himself and ran away when he noticed my brother was standing at the window going WTF dude. They’ve got previous for putting up signs like that.

    I think this is on south clerk street, opposite the queens hall. Incidentally I live on the second floor, but I close the shutters…
