Like many of us, Jess and Alex Monney wanteded to renovate their bathroom. During home improvements, we may never know what we will find once we start to scrape wallpaper, remove flooring, but the Monneys made a very surprising discovery from the home’s former owners.

While their contractor was gutting the bathroom, he saw a note scrawled onto the walls. “Hi! We’re the Shinsekis!” It began. “We remodeled this bathroom summer 1995.” Then comes the unexpected part: “If you’re reading this, that means you’re remodeling the bathroom again. What’s wrong with the way we did it?!?!?” The Shinsekis also incorporated a portrait of themselves and a note from their rabbit, Cassie, who had ambitions of being the next Cadbury bunny.

The strange message amused not only Jess and Alex but the whole internet. Alex uploaded the pictures to Twitter and it quickly became famous. Internet detectives tried to find the Shinsekis to tell them that their correspondence had been not only received, but also very known. Alex and Jess want to keep the tradition of note writing by composing and leaving their own message inside of the wall.

The Monneys never met that family, but Alex has a cool message to give them. “Your bathroom, and home, is lovely,” he relayed online. “It has given us a lot of beautiful memories and we can’t wait to raise our little baby girl here. Sorry we’re changing the bathroom, but the shower is too small for me to fit in (I’m 6′ and my wife is 5′). Thank you for the amazing surprise!”

This is Alex and Jess Monney, a couple who lives in the Bay area and decided to remodel their bathroom.

As their contractor was gutting the room, he discovered a hilarious hidden note written inside of the walls.

To continue the tradition, the Monneys will write their own note and will leave it inside of the walls!
