Kitchen fitter finds message and gift from previous tenants hidden under the floor

A kitchen fitter carrying out renovations stumbled across a handwritten note underneath a kitchen floor – and a kind gift.

He shared the surprise on TikTok where he explained: “So we’re stripping out a kitchen and we found a message under the floor.”

The note written in felt tip said: “Jack and May lived here – three kids and a dog. Kitchen done up during April and May 2001..

“All the best, have a drink on us.”

The previous tenants thoughtfully left a small bottle of Glenkinchie whiskey tied to the wall.

While the note isn’t the most exciting message, it’s always nice to learn more about former tenants – and the bottle of booze is a nice touch.

The video racked up thousands of views on TikTok after being shared on the video platform.

One person commented: “Awww that was so sweet.”

Another said: “How lovely is that. I might do that when mine eventually gets done.”

Others pointed out that the whiskey might be worth something if they hold on to it for a while longer.

One viewer advised: “Potentially a desirable whiskey, could be worth a wee bit.”

Meanwhile, another person shared how they had a similar idea when refitting their kitchen – but the end result was much less mature.

They joked: “I did this in my kitchen when I refitted it, except I drew [genitals] and the date instead,” along with a laughing emoji.

Not quite as meaningful but it would probably raise a smile when discovered years later.

Meanwhile, a woman left people in stitches after revealing she’s had to cover a tattoo for a year because it has taken on a different meaning.

Leah Holland, 25, from Kentucky, U.S, got the tattoo at the beginning of March last year – just before a lot of people started taking the pandemic seriously and countries globally locked down.
