Couple finds hilariously sassy note from previous homeowner while remodeling bathroom
Whenever anyone moves into a new house, it's pretty normal to wonder who lived there before you. Who were they? Where did they do? Were they happy living there? Why did they move? Why on earth did they choose that wallpaper?
For most of us, these questions remain unanswered, and we are left to create new memories, making the space our own and forgetting that the old owners ever existed. But for the Monney family, they were given a hilarious reminder of the old residents when they decided to remodel their house.
While they were renovating, Alex and Jess Monney found a message left behind by the previous owners. Alongside a picture of the couple who used to live there, it read: "We remodeled this bathroom summer of 1995. If you're reading this, that means you're remodeling the bathroom again. What's wrong with the way we did it?"
In addition, the note had a picture of the couple's "potty-trained pet rabbit", with the text next to it reading ""Hi! I'm Cassie the Bunny Rabbit. I lived here too! (I'm potty trained)". "I'm going to be the next Cadbury Bunny," a further text bubble read.
Posting it on Twitter with the caption "We’re remodeling our bathroom and our contractor just sent us this@Jess_Monney," Alex's now-deleted tweet went viral, receiving thousands of likes, and attracting attention all over the social media network.
Many people across Twitter's main focus was the bunny rabbit, with dozens being left amazed that it was potty-trained. "This is so good. SO GOOD. A bunny lived in your house that was house trained?! that is so good," wrote Twitter user @craigums, while @alexmonney pondered "how the hell" you house train a bunny.
Furthermore, one Twitter user decided she knew where the rabbit was living now, and if she's right, it sounds to us like it lived a good life. "I’ve heard the bunny is living out his golden years in the U.K., where he is currently working on his memoirs. He’s quite cozy in a little smoking jacket, with a tiny glass of brandy and a wee little fireplace to snuggle near. #bunnyretirement," commented @Nikki71.
In addition, many other house owners were inspired to take to Twitter and share their own stories of finding messages from old residents. Hilariously, this included a stack of Playboy magazines, a Lone Star beer, and a note that read "Welcome to the house of bodge. You should have seen it before! ... This bathroom took 2 months of hard work!"
Of course, some Twitter users were keen to see how the old family had decorated the bathroom. They were rewarded when they found an old post of Jess Monney's showing a picture of the bathroom before the renovation. Upon seeing it, a lot of Twitter users claimed they understood why the Monneys wanted to change it.
Amazingly, the couple have reportedly claimed they want to keep up the quirky tradition by writing their own time capsule message. What will they write? Well, we'll probably find out in a few decades.
