Homeowner leaves postman hilarious note about spider that is ‘holding mail hostage’

There are a number of things we just cant deal with in life and are pretty scared of – from creepy clowns to snakes.

But top of that list will always be spiders, no matter how tiny they might be.

And it seems we’re not the only ones with this fear, as a viral social media post has recently shown.

A post on the Instagram account, @neighborsfromhell has shared a hilarious letter a resident left on their mailbox for the postman.

In the anonymous note, the writer explains that their mail has been held hostage by the insect and they are hoping the postman can help them out – by taking any means necessary.

The letter reads: “Dear Mr. Postman!

“Beholder of parcels, bringer of utility bills, I write to you on this day to ask a simple task of you.

“Living on the right side of my mailbox is a spider, seemingly holding my mail hostage.

“If you could remove him for me, either by relocation or brutal murder, I would be forever in your debt.

“Signed, Resident.”

In the bottom right-hand corner of the letter, there is then a small drawing of a spider with an annotation that says: “Spider looks like this”.

Just in case they’re having trouble figuring it out.

More than 13,000 people have since liked the Instagram post, with hundreds taking the time to comment and many found the letter relatable.

One person said: “The drawing of the spider is just so vivid…”

Another wrote: “Love this.”

“Get a broom and do it yourself,” proclaimed a third.

Someone else replied: “I would do this in a heartbeat.”

“100% would do the same thing,” admitted a different user.

A sixth added: “I feel them, not sure I would have the b*lls to ask my postman to commit a murder for me though.”
