Valentine's Day may be hanging in the balance for one lad who has decided to test his girlfriend's commitment with a cheeky note a fortnight out from the special day.
The boyfriend initially appeared to have his lady's best interests at heart by leaving her a cute note emblazed with kisses.

"Hey beautiful, check the mailbox 4 (sic) a surprise... Happy early Valentine's xx," it said.
Posted to Facebook just two weeks before Valentine's Day, the woman went on to post the second note, which didn't quite have the same ring to it.
"Just jokes can you bring the bins in pls."
The post stirred a reaction from commenters on social media who questioned the man's kindness.
"And he was never heard from again. Though the bins were a little heavier the following week," one person wrote.
"Easy way to save money on Valentine's Day. SURPRISE you're single now," another said.
