Today, after a week of rejoicing that my petty, passive-aggressive, bullying neighbours were moving away, I came home to find the "to let" board had been outside the wrong house the whole time. It's actually the people I really like who are moving away. FML

I'm sorry excuse my ignorance what do you mean "to let" board? Toilet board hahaha

Maybe you should invest in a "to let" sign so you can live somewhere peaceful.

I'm just going to assume it's something British (at least the name of it) and wait with you for one of them to clarify. Though based on the wording I'd assume it's something akin to a for sale sign.

It's for places that are up for rent

It's basically a sign saying "This place is available to be rented out". Why we call it "To Let" I don't know, but it's been that way for as long as I can remember and I hope it doesn't change due to Americanisms.

It shouldn't have to change #7 because there is some things we say and do in America that is different from another country. That type of stuff is what makes different country's unique(:

Let/lease, lease/rent (I know this has already technically been answered, but I'm giving the reasoning behind the wording)

How are your neighbors bullies?? Please follow up

I understand your mistake, but you didn't notice for a week?

Read it again, it was actually misplaced.

I'm guessing a "to let board" is a for sale/for rent sign

Why didn't your neighbors take down the sign if it wasn't supposed to be in front of their house? Were they not home for a week? Or are the homes rented and the landlord affixed the sign in a way they couldn't take it down?
