You can’t escape them. They’re all around us. Neighbours. Do you get on with yours or do they give you grief? Our neighbours let their kids carry on in the backyard until all hours of the night – even on weeknights.
So you took the initiative to get to know them when you moved in? Did any of your neighbours bother making an effort? I said hi to one of mine, but she walked straight on by as if I hadn't said a thing. :|
There were a few that said a 'hello' as we moved. But not everyone is cheery and chirpy. And while I know who is in the zoo it does not go without saying that most keep to themselves. Just who they are I guess!
I'm a private person most of the time, and I have had a falling out with one lady across the street.
She was really nice, till she crossed the sticky nose thing.
There is always 'one' no matter where you go.
Our neighbours are pretty good. Both sides have kids about the same age as my daughter. We've been invited over for drinks a few times, but it always coincides with bed times. I feel really anti-social since our neighbours have made an effort to get to know us, and we just haven't been able to get together yet!
Yes, we make a conscious effort to be friendly.
Sadly there have been occasions when a neighbour does not reciprocate that mentality.
Noise is one of the main problems with neighbours, dogs that continually bark or wayward children.
Consider others always when living with neighbours - you will enjoy the benefits from better relationships!
