Wow. Just wow.

We thought we've been going through some shit, but clearly we have nothing on a Michigan antique store owner, who let it rip in a lengthy note to customers.

Apparently, somebody stole the brass spout of a ceramic water jug. But they didn't just steal the spout — the took something from the store owner that can apparently never be replaced.

"In stealing the spout, you have hurt and violated me," the store owner wrote, and it just spirals downward from there.

The note was posted to Twitter by "Dr. Death Metal," who makes metal music as The Unshored and clearly has an appreciation for the darker things in life.

"I encourage you to read this note all the way to the end," Dr. Death Metal wrote. "There is not a black metal song on earth that contains the absolute seething, pitiless hatred contained within this note I found at a Michigan antique store."

Well, we won't spoil it. You can read the full note, which is so dark it is simply a thing of beauty, below.
