A dad wasn’t here for a “Karen” who complained so much to their homeowners’ association; he was forced to tear down a treehouse he built for his sons.
The dad, known as “Dave,” wrote, “Don’t worry, you’re safe now! Your act of casual cruelty was successful.”
He then placed the plastic-covered note on a tree. A photo of it was posted on Reddit, going viral on the r/F—YouKaren and r/Facepalm subreddits.
“The complaint you lodged with the HOA was heard. They made me take down the small tree fort that I built on this location with my sons during the pandemic,” he wrote.
“No longer will its presence offend your walk past my house. Please enjoy your stroll free from the sound of my children’s play and laughter,” his sarcasm-laden message continues.
“They are safely back inside now, watching television, I’m sure,” he adds. “Enjoy the unobstructed view of my backyard. I will try to keep it up to code.”
Reddit users responded to Dave’s note in support.
“I know we’re all joking here, but the beauty of this is that it’s preserved in a plastic sleeve, so it’s not ‘garbage,’ and it’s just a paper sign, so it’s also not some kind of new ‘structure’ so likely the HOA can’t say s— about this unless they write some new rules,” one user wrote. “Dave even hung it with the sleeve upside down so water can’t drop into it from the top.”
