Neighbours, Does Everybody Need Good Neighbours?
Ask a Question
I live on a relatively quiet street where under normal circumstances, some neighbours chat and others mind their own business which is fine.
I have one neighbour though who has a voice that is not only piercing but also louder than a fog horn. He never seems to be happy to just get on with his life quietly and as a result, has various power tools and a motorbike to make noise while the rest of us are either working, on furlough or trying to relax. When his children play badminton in the street, I can hardly hear them. When he joins in, it sounds like Sloth from The Goonies playing at the final of Wimbledon.
On the flipside, I have a more immediate neighbour who put a note through our door to check we're ok because he hadn't seen us for a few days. This restores my faith in people when they do something so simple but thoughtful.
