An Australian woman made a rather interesting request of her mailman.  

An unidentified mailman posted an image of a letter he received in a woman's mailbox to file sharing site Imgur, the Daily Mail reports. The letter is a plea from the homeowner for the mailman to please kill a spider that is living inside the mailbox.  

The letter reads: 

"Beholder of parcels, bringer of utility bills, I write to you on this day to ask a simple task of you. Living on the right side of my mailbox is a spider, seemingly holding my mail hostage.  If you could remove him for me, either by relocation or brutal murder, I would be forever in your debt."

The letter is signed "Resident," and a crude drawing of a spider is on the bottom right corner of the letter.

The photo of the letter has gone viral, racking up more than 600,000 views on Imgur in less than a day. 

No word yet on whether the mail carrier killed the spider, or whether the resident has been able to collect her mail.
