Couple Finds Hilarious Note From Previous Homeowner During Bathroom Renovation.
Some individuals truly know how to make a lasting impression. Alex and Jess Monney, a married couple residing in the San Francisco Bay Area, gained widespread attention on Twitter recently due to their decision to renovate their bathroom.
While bathroom renovations are usually unremarkable, this particular project became instantly remarkable when the Monneys stumbled upon a delightful hidden time capsule behind a wall, causing them to burst into laughter. Although the bathroom appeared decent in the photos Jess shared, it had been untouched for about two decades. Despite being eight months pregnant, Jess expressed her love for renovation projects and both she and Alex were excited to witness the transformation.
During the demolition process, their contractor discovered a handwritten note on the wall, along with photographs of the previous inhabitants of the house—the Shinseki family.
The Shinsekis had remodeled the same bathroom back in 1995, and Mrs. Shinseki seemed displeased that their hard work was being undone for another renovation.
The note humorously exclaimed:
“If you’re reading this, that means you’re remodeling the bathroom again. What’s wrong with the way we did it?!?!?”
Alex and Jess found this note to be incredibly amusing, and it provided them with laughter throughout the day. Mrs. Shinseki even included a picture of their pet bunny rabbit, Cassie, adding an adorable touch.
When Alex shared their discovery on Twitter, it quickly went viral, garnering thousands of likes and retweets. People were inspired to investigate their own walls for hidden messages and artifacts left behind by previous homeowners, sharing their own fascinating stories.
Some individuals happily shared what they themselves had left behind for future homeowners to find. Despite attempts by internet sleuths to locate the Shinseki family, they have yet to come forward and accept the praise for their humorous gesture. If given the chance, Alex would express his gratitude and admiration, saying:
“Your bathroom and home are lovely. They have given us countless beautiful memories, and we can’t wait to raise our baby girl here. We apologize for changing the bathroom, but the shower is too small for me (being 6 feet tall) and my wife (being 5 feet tall) to comfortably fit in. Thank you for the amazing surprise!”
The Monneys extend their appreciation to the Shinseki family for the laughs and hope that they, along with their bunny, are doing well. If Mrs. Shinseki’s message brought a smile to your face, please share it with others!
