A WOMAN who TWICE had her garden furniture taken by her neighbour dealt with it in the most British way possible – and politely asked for it back.
Lia Hatzakis, 29, spotted her brand new garden table set was incomplete – with two chairs mysteriously missing.
She initially thought they had been accidentally broken by builders and removed in the aftermath.
But then she claims she later spotted her neighbour sat on her garden chairs and her “jaw dropped”.
Their gardens are separated by a fence.
Her partner, Achillea Kyriakou, 35, retrieved the missing chairs through a shared alleyway, 她说.
But soon after, Lia, a YouTuber, noticed the chairs were missing for a second time and decided to record what happened.
在视频中 – posted to her TikTok 帐户 – Lia filmed herself as she discovered the furniture was in her neighbour’s garden for a second time.
“I looked in the garden and the guy was just sat on it!” 她说.
Lia, who lives near Warwick, ks。, can be seen asking her neighbour for the chairs back, who promptly agrees.
她说: “Hiya, excuse me, I noticed that my garden furniture is there, could I have it back?”
在视频中, the man claimed someone else had taken the furniture, and added: “I woke up one morning and they were just there.”
Lia said she decided to give him the benefit of the doubt.
The video went viral on TikTok, amassing over 2.5 million views. Lia says she has had plenty of people commenting on the polite interaction.
她补充说: “There were loads of Americans watching the video saying ‘this is the most British reaction I’ve ever seen to asking for furniture back.'”
