The Letter in the Pond

Yes, it’s a letter, from 2003. Found in the bottom of a pond.
Recently, a friend of ours, Simon, moved to Over, just North of Cambridge, UK. He was moving to a lovely property, with a nice garden and a pond.

Simon wasn’t so keen on the pond though. It’s not very child friendly, and with two young ones running around the garden, he thought it would be safer to get rid of it.

A few buckets and hours of sweating later, Simon lifted the pond lining to discover a laminated piece of paper sitting at the bottom of the gaping hole that once was the previous owner’s pond.

You’ll need to go to the linked story to read the entire letter, but I’ll let you know this much: the writer was not happy. Link -via Metafilter

Why do some people take everything so seriously. The letter is pretty tongue in cheek and the pond creator obviously knew that not everyone that lived there would share his same love of pond so why not leave a little note that will make someone smile after a long day of pond removal
