What is it about a polite note that is inherently wrong, and what about face-to-face is inherently right? The fact that you think it's a matter of "fear" indicates you're looking at this from the wrong perspective. This is not a conflict
. There is no "him vs the neighbors." It's a simple request.
On a related note, there's a guy in my neighborhood with a newer WRX with an exhaust. When I first moved into the neighborhood, I pulled a "I hear a Subaru! Where is it???" the first few times her drove by. I can hear this guy start his car 300 yards away, actually. Now, I suspect he thought I was eying him up, thinking he was driving too fast, and I think perhaps he might drive a little extra carefully as a result. Now, I actually wasn't
eying him up at all. I just thought it looked/sounded nice and it made me nostalgic for my WRX. But the point is, he was self-aware and made the adult
decision to act like he lives in a society
with other people
around, and made a small adjustment accordingly (even if unnecessarily).
