Unfriendly Neighbors Story
I just love reading about neighbors and since this has been bugging my DH & me for awhile thought I would post and see what you thought. We moved into our neighborhood which consist of 68 homes 4 years ago. At the time nobody welcomed us and to this day the same neighbors that are still here ignore us. I use to wave hi and they would just stare. Pretty strange I thought but oh well. Two years ago a young couple who are teachers moved in. I made banana bread for them and welcomed them to the neighborhood, they accepted the bread, said thanks and haven't spoken to us since. They completely avoid any contact with us. The 2nd couple (2 older females) had a house built recently next to us and last week we bought them a beautiful ceramic basket, filled it with fruit and took it over to them. The one woman was on her cell phone and the other just glared at us as we introduced ourselves and welcomed them. The one continued talking on her cell and the other never said Thanks, kiss our ass, NOTHING. Has "thank you" become passe? Although I have made friends blocks from us our closet neighbors are just downright rude. We're just two normal people who work hard for a living, maintain our home and believe "do unto others". I just bought a book "Talk to the Hand" about rudeness in the world today. Maybe after reading it I won't give a crap about any of these neighbors & just forget about their behavior all together.... Boy now I feel better...thanks for reading.
