A person’s land is their kingdom. Their house is their castle. And if they’re not harming anyone, it’s their — and only their — business to run it however they want. However, this simple concept is apparently too difficult for some to understand.

Three days ago, Twitter user @goldenstef posted a picture of a disgusting letter her grandpa had received. In it, his neighbors ridicule his house decorations, saying they’re ‘excessive’ and ‘bad taste.’ The senders signed it as ‘decent, middle-class people’ but the contents of the letter clearly show they’re anything but. I mean, how self-conscious and insecure they must feel if the only way they can raise their self-esteem is to diminish others?

The perfect example of how to a trash human being went viral on Twitter, generating over 236K likes and 5.4K comments, many of which are sending the elderly man their best wishes. Let’s hope they will cheer him up!

Here’s the full letter

After the letter went viral, the Internet got to see the house, too

The granddaughter of the recipient said they think the decorations aren’t bad at all, and many agreed with her on the Internet. “We’re still looking for the people who sent it and when we find out who…” she added. “I’m so mad and sad at the same time and they didn’t leave a return address.”

Even if the man and his granddaughter were to ask around, trying to find out who could’ve written the letter, chances are, they would run into some trouble. According to a 2018 Pew Research Center survey, the majority of Americans (57%) say they know only some of their neighbors; far fewer (26%) say they know most of them.

And everyone thought it was anything but embarrassing
