Seven students were shocked to discover their frosted bathroom window was actually see-through - after they received a note from their neighbours.
A family living across the road from their terraced house in Hanover, Brighton, posted the handwritten message through their letterbox.
It read: “We thought we should just mention something that has become apparent to us.
"The frosted glass in the bathroom at the front of your house does not give you much privacy. Hardly any at all in fact, especially in the evening when the light is on.
"Therefore, we wanted to suggest that you ask the landlord to install a blind for you.”
The anonymous note to the University of Sussex second year undergrads ended with: “From your friendly neighbours in the houses opposite.”
Geography student Gabi Abadi, who lives at the house, said the message was “hilarious” and revealed that she and her friends now hang towels over the window to save their dignity.
“We’re a group of seven students living in the house but it’s a family who live opposite us. If their kids are young we should definitely do something about it,” the 21-year-old said.
“We might message the landlord but they probably won’t do anything about it anyway. We might have to hang a towel over the window.
"I’ve honestly never heard of anything like this before. It’s a bit of a stupid design to be honest,” she added.
