Read Google’s brutally passive and aggressive review of a ‘party’ gym after their neighbor slammed them for having ‘incredibly loud’ meetings every night
- A gym in Brisbane threw a party with dance music that rocked the streets from the windows
- A neighbor complained to the gym asking them to be a little more considerate
- The gym owner finally responded with an incredibly passive-aggressive note
An Australian gym has written an infuriating passive-aggressive response to a neighbor’s complaint about its extremely loud parties on the residential street.
The owner of Stones Corner in south Brisbane said the boutique gym regularly hosts ‘incredibly loud parties’ outdoors behind his building, with music at ‘festival level volumes’ with their latest weekend Christmas party.
“The music and shouting over it was fully audible on the streets through the closed windows…not wanting to relive that, we contacted them via Instagram and Google Chat,” the resident said on social media on Monday.
“People were screaming for them to refuse…they were asked to think of others,” they said, adding that they had not yet received a response and assumed they were being ignored.

But they updated the post later that day saying the gym owner responded with an incredibly selfish response.
‘Hi. Yes, we had a wonderful evening celebrating with all of our customers and their incredible accomplishments over the past year,’ the owner wrote in his response.
He then listed some of his clients who won awards such as ‘Wendy and Bruce’ who were band training clients of the year and Sarah G was inducted into the ‘hall of fame’.
‘Ken won the annual beer pong championship. Congratulations to all our winners.’
The owner explained it was to see so many people coming back after Covid ‘over a few drinks and dancing music’.
“We’ve been at Stones Corner for 19 years…we’re really excited about what our 20 year celebration will look like.”
The owner then ends the email without even bothering to acknowledge the concerns of other residents on the street.
“Once again our year-end party was a hit with all of our guests…now we have to get back to our exercises and shake off that festive cheer.”
‘PS – Unlimited group training with us is only $39 per week.’

Commenters on Reddit, where the neighbor shared the response, overwhelmingly agreed that he was self-centered.
‘The answer alone is enough to make me despise this company. Without even referring to the complaint. Nobody cares who won their awards,” one person said.
‘Also $39 a week? The gym around the corner is much cheaper, plus they don’t keep me up at night with their self-involved shenanigans,” another said.
“It’s always noisy there on a normal day on my way to Aldi. I can imagine how loud they would have been at a celebration. It’s the kind of gym a trainer yells at you on top of excruciatingly loud electronic dance music,” added a third.
The neighbor declined to say exactly which gym was involved – there are a number of fitness studios in Stones Corner.
According to Queensland Police, neighbors can report loud parties to police who will then attend the scene.
If officers agree the noise is excessive, they can enter the property without a warrant and give the host a formal direction to stop the noise, which lasts for 96 hours.
If they are called again during this window and find that there is again excessive noise, they can issue fines on the spot or a notice of court appearance.
They can also temporarily seize equipment used to make noise, such as speakers.
