One’s freshman year of college can be a confusing, awkward and lonely time.
This is true across the board, for anyone…
… whether or not one’s dorm neighbor is practically shaking one’s walls with the loud screams and moans of her never-ending sex life.
For Jenna Levine, however, a 19-year old freshman at Syracuse, the combination of being single and being reminded of how her neighbor is anything BUT single recently became too much to handle.
Levine has gone viral after she simply had to do something about yet another rowdy intercourse romp taking place close to her room.
The student chose to alert her neighbor to this uncomfortable situation by shoving a note under her her fellow freshman’s dorm door that asked her to please "make it nasty at a lower volume."
Levine then shared a picture of her plea on Twitter, along with the caption, “college is weird."
This is what the kind request said in full:
Please have sex a little more quietly please. Some of us are trying to nap and not be reminded of how alone I am … feel free to make all the love you want.
Just please, make it nasty at a lower volume. Thank you!
Perfect, right? Perfect and also sort of heartbreaking.
Incredibly, Levine didn’t just get a response from the girl in Room 338.
She got an understanding, gentle, sympathetic response that made us think there’s hope in this world for compassion after all.
First, the apologetic note in reply came with a candy bar…
Second, it read as follows:
I’m so so incredibly sorry about that. I didn’t realize how loud I was being, and ya know, sometimes having loud sex is low key kinda hot but obviously at your cost, which I apologize so sincerely for.
I’m so so sorry, hope this hasn’t been occurring too often, and thanks so much for the incredible and hilarious card.
I will for sure try to keep it nasty at a significantly lower level. And hey, don’t worry, you’re not alone forever. The right person will come along when the time comes. I was single for 18 years.
Haha. Once again, I apologize so sincerely and deeply.
Amazing, right?!? Especially when you compare this exchange to similar types of exchanges in the past:
As you can see above, asking someone who lives nearby to bang a bit quieter does not always work out well.
It can lead to an hilarious exchange, sure, but this time it lead to a heartfelt exchange.
And, we’d like to think, a lifelong friendship. Or at least something these two can laugh about in the bathroom one day.
Take a look below at the apologetic response message in full detail:
Seriously, please keep the faith, Jenna.
You will absolutely find that perfect someone. You clearly deserve it.
