A bizarre neighborhood dispute has broken out in the northern suburbs of Perth.
And it’s because of the smell of food…
On behalf of his vegan family members, a Burns Beach resident wrote to his neighbor asking him to close the window when he cooks his “disgusting” meat, reports PerthNow.
The upset writer presented the letter with “PLEASE TAKE IT SERIOUSLY” written on the front of the envelope that contained the request.
The letter sent to Hey Perth on Facebook begins: “Hello neighbor, could you close the side window when you cook?
“My family is vegan, we only eat plant-based foods, and the smell of the meat you cook makes us feel sick and upset.
“We would appreciate your understanding, thank you. Sarah, Wayne and the children.
The letter has generated hundreds of reactions from users on Facebook, mainly stunned by what they have read.
“I bet her mouth waters when her old buddy mows the lawn and she smells that deliciously freshly cut grass, but!” one user wrote.
“I am offended by the smell of kale that she always cooks,” wrote another.
Others said it was time to bring out their barbecues despite the menu.
“Oh man… I’d be firing up the barbecue and inviting the whole street,” said one.
“I’d fire up the smoker and make a 12 hour brisket, with a lunch sausage sizzle, titled a lot,” said another.
