Dorm life can be rough. You’re randomly thrown together with a bunch of strangers during the most confusing, thrilling, drunken, and stressful periods of your life. And sometimes, inevitably, your neighbors are going to have uncomfortably loud sex while you’re trying to study or sleep, and it’ll remind you just how alone you truly are.
Jenna Levine, a student at Syracuse University, did the only polite thing she could think of when confronted with that particular problem: She left an awkwardly sweet note to her neighbors asking if they could keep it down a little—and she documented it all on Twitter and Snapchat.
The neighbors in room 338 actually wrote back and, in a genius move I’m filing away for future reference, wrote part of their apology on a candy bar.
The full note reads:
I'm so so incredibly sorry about that. I didn't realize how loud I was being, and ya know, sometimes having loud sex is low key kinda hot but obviously at your cost, which I apologize so sincerely for. I'm so so sorry, I hope this hasn't occurred too often, and thanks so much for the incredible and hilarious card. I will for sure try to make it nasty at a significantly lower level. And hey, don't you worry, you're not alone forever. The right person will come along when the time comes. I was single for 18 years. Haha. Once again, I apologize so sincerely and deeply.
Sorry, Room 338
Somehow, despite all of the attention their exchange received on Twitter, the neighbors have still yet to meet.
“College is weird,” Levine wrote on Twitter, recapping the whole ordeal.
You don’t know the half of it.
