A frustrated father has hammered a “Karen” who filed a complaint with his homeowner’s associations, which made him destroy a treehouse he worked for his children.
According to indy100.com: “Don’t worry, you’re safe now! Your act of casual cruelty was successful,” the disappointed parent, who marked his name Dave, wrote in a plastic-shrouded note he stuck to a tree.
A photograph of the note was posted on Reddit, where it turned into a web sensation on the r/F—YouKaren and r/Facepalm subreddits.
Here is the picture of the post:
The post reads:
“Don’t worry, you’re safe now! Your act of casual cruelty was successful. The complaint you lodged with the HOA was heard. They made me take down the small tree fort that I built on this location with my sons during the pandemic.
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,” his sarcasm-laden message continues. They are safely back inside now, watching television I’m sure,” he adds. “Enjoy the unobstructed view of my backyard. I will try to keep it up to code.”
Reddit users plainly thought the individual who filed the complaint was looking in the wrong place — as they shared similar run-ins with HOAs.
The post received thousands of response:
One said: My wife was HOA president for the last 2 years and got called a dictator for the HOA restricting pool hours and capacity during a pandemic.
A second one added: This HOA shit you have in America sounds like some authoritarian shit. I can’t believe that happens to you on your own property. I would piss all over their requests. My home, my fucking decisions as to what I do on my property
while a third one said: Dave, Fight back. Don’t let the Karen win. Take over the HOA and change the rules. Work from inside the system if you must. Don’t let the children down. I really really need to know you didn’t let this idiot have her way. Let me know if you need help. Dave’s of the world UNITE!
