A man has left the Internet divided after hitting back at an angry note from a neighbour with many believing the neighbour's anger was actually justified.

The Texas-based man took to Reddit to share the note, which he says he received after leaving his dog alone for two hours.

The note read: "Next time you leave your dog locked in a room while you're gone, we're calling animal control.

"Your p***** off annoyed neighbours."

The man was very annoyed after receiving the note and decided to share it online, writing, "If you live in Stone Oak and left this note on our [door] let鈥檚 talk this out like adults.

"We went to the vet for our other dog and were gone for two hours.

"I鈥檇 love to explain since clearly it bothers you to hear noise at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon."

People were quick to share their thoughts on the note with one commenter writing, "They're supposed to find two hours of straight barking just... pleasant?"

"This is def an overreaction from the note person but I will also say no one wants to listen to your dog lose its s*** for two hours," another said. "So maybe you鈥檙e also culpable."

"I agree. People letting their dogs bark is super annoying," someone else added. "Especially if you work nights and sleep during the day."

"People think dogs are like kids and that they can just have one and one day it will learn to behave well or listen out of fear but the truth is they don't," another said. "They will be annoying and their owners just act like it's everyone else's problem. If you don't want to invest the time in your dog don't own one."

They added that the owner should "do something" about his dog, rather than complaining "about how mean your neighbours are".

Some were confused why the man's first thought was to go to Reddit, with one user writing, "Why not knock on your neighbour's door instead of trying to find them on Reddit?"

Another suggested that maybe the note writers were simply having a bad day and should be given the benefit of the doubt.
