Like a Good Neighbor

19 Jul

untitled (2)
We all share this world, and regardless of how much of a recluse we want to be, we will be living, working and playing near each other. That being said, there are some courtesies that we should keep in mind. Living in the city, or suburbs, or even the country side, there are some simple living manners we should uphold. Common knowledge things such as keeping the yard cut and clear of litter, keeping a volume cap on the noise levels, keeping guest’s cars parked in places that don’t hinder other neighbors’ way of life. Some other things are not as noticeably common. Things such as monitoring the comings and goings of different people around the neighborhood. Not to become that nosey window peeking, porch chair watching, over the glasses snooping old lady or man, but knowing when things don’t look or sound normal. Other things such as the cosmetic details that should be maintained, keeping the property value where it belongs. Living in condos, or apartments some things see a little less obvious. Keeping the noise at common, comfortable volumes, walking softly when you live above the first floor. Not running up and down the stairs, bumping the walls, or leaving trash outside of the door. Keeping your living space clean so that you deter common city rodents.

While we hope to live near people with these common courtesies in habit, good neighbors are far and few between. I’ve given up on apartment living. My next move is ownership. Sometimes this world can make us forget the good inside of us. Its our job to remember the little things that can help spread the love to others.

Just a lil of the TRUTH…

    So true…
    In last neighborhood we had a neighbor, term used lightly, whose friends and fam parked everywhere. When called on it would use same BS speech about serving his country, cut him slack. His naval service didnt trump my retired service, my wife’s active service, or the F-18 pilot down the blocks service, or the civilian who worked at DevGroup. I put him him on hard blast after awhile after hearing his rationale.
    I respect his service, but it doesnt allow him to don the asshat.
