from home has its set of ups and down but does that mean you start bullying
Amy Yeh, a Malaysian-based mother, was asked to keep her crying baby’s voice down
the other day as it was a reason of frustration for their next door neighbors.
These neighbors have been very kind during this pandemic as they personally
visited Geralyn’s house to complain and scare them off. If that wasn’t it,
they left a note in which they asked her to be a bit more “considerate”.

course, Geralyn was shocked but she wrote back an amusing letter, and honestly,
we’re fans. The reply was witty and on point! She also posted it on Facebook

quite understood it, but she did look serious after hearing it and gave a pity
she promised to keep her door closed most of the day but gave a fair warning
that it might make the baby “cranky”.
She didn’t stop here. She left them an advice and suggested them to put on
headphones to block the excessive noise.
concluded the letter with this: “I
would appreciate you not to come over to shout or scold my helper as your
behavior has scared her and my baby (sic).”
