One father is publicly shaming a neighbor who reported his family’s tree fort to their homeowner association.

Fox News reports:

The dad, who goes by the first name Dave, printed out a scathing letter that condemned his neighbor’s tattling, according to a snapshot uploaded to Reddit’s “Facepalm” forum – a subreddit that’s dedicated to sharing “the stupidity of people online and IRL.”

Sporting a plastic sheet cover and two green tacks that were hammered into the offending tree, the open letter confronts the anonymous neighbor who reportedly tipped off the HOA.

“Dear Anonymous Passerby,” the letter begins. “Don’t worry, you’re safe now! Your act of casual cruelty was successful. The complaint you lodged with the HOA was heard. They had me take down the small treefort that I built on this location with my sons during the pandemic.”

Dave adds: “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. They are safely back inside now, watching television I’m sure. Enjoy the unobstructed view of my backyard. I will try to keep it up to code.”

According to Fox News, over 101,000 people have upvoted the Reddit post since its original upload on Monday, June 14.

Rule #1……NEVER live anywhere there is a HOA! You give up your rights to them.

I bet there wasn’t anything regarding a tree fort directly they used some other all encompassing rule . HOA are garbage and why anyone agrees to buy a home where you’re told what to do 24/7 is beyond me. These people always anonymous in their reporting since they’re cowards. Most people in these HOA’s are miserable, nosey and cowards.

A friend of mine had a tree fall on his house. He had a chainsaw and was removing the rubble off his house. The HOA served papers on him because he had not gotten permission from the HOA to remove it! Too many busybodies in these HOA’s with no common sense!

Maybe it did not meet HO/a guidelines. Apparently, the homeowner did not ask permission before putting up the fort.

‘Live and let live ‘ is no longer accepted in this ‘everything offends’ someone, and the ‘cancel
culture’ world we have become . Another reason why the ‘Greatest Generation’ was great.
After what they survived they knew what was important.
