I have classify my neighbor into 2 types: a)caring b)selfish My caring neighbor will always help me, such as inform me when it is going to rain and many others. Conversely, my selfish neighbor do not care of people health. They have a bad habit-smoking. Usually, the unbearable smell from smoke will spread by wind to many houses(include mine), the 'irritating' smell always cause me cannot breath fresh air in the morning, thus 'decrease' my mood to carry out daily activities.. What type of neighbor do you have? Thanks for sharing.^.^

We always have the naggy or annoying neighbor... and we have two. We also have that too-many-dogs neighbor, they annoy me a lot, all the chihuahuas barking at the same time. We also have that goody-two shoes neighbor. And of course, we have those great neighbors as well!

Well we also have two types of neighbours. On one side is an old couple who are quite nice and friendly. They usually make an effort to say hello, ask how we are etc. And on the other side is a family that we really do not get on with. They have always had something against us right from day one - they are always rude and always causing problems for us.

I have one neighbor who turned pervert on me, he was exposing himself to me every time I would walk from my kitchen through the dining room, it's a straight view from his front porch. I had to secretly videotape him to prove to my husband what he was doing. I told his wife about it and she wouldn't look at the video. She confronted him and he said I taped him peeing off the porch. I'm not a child, I know the difference. The wife and I are friendly, we chat often but I have nothing to say to her husband. I don't hate him anymore, I just ignore him. I have one neighbor who is the greatest. We were enemies at one time, for about two years. I prayed and sent Reiki to the situation and all of a sudden, one winter, he started plowing out our driveway and front sidewalk. I didn't know how to thank him so everytime I make a pot of stew or soup, I take over a huge container for him and his son. Being bachelors, they love the home cooked meals. Now we are all great friends. The neighbors behind us are great, they'd do anything for us and we'd do anything for them. In nice weather we are always on the porch chatting and watching their kids. Great people. Across the road, we have nice neighbors. We talk some, but they both work and we seldom see each other. This is a small town with the expected small town atmosphere, except for the winters here, I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

My neighbours some are quite friendly and polite. Whenever they wanted something from us like curry leaves that my mom planted, then my neighbours would ask nicely and in return sometimes, they may give us something to eat or try. On the other hand, one of my neighbour is very abnoxious person. But i can't blame her for being stubborn as she is very old and might have those old people sickness where they forget what they have done. She once said to us before that we throw leaves to her house whereby actually the leaves flew to her house passing by the winds. Then she will sweep the leaves and throw it to our area. That's kind of rude but my family could not scold her as she is too old and she is having problems and sickness too. Besides there is no sons or daughters who live with her as they have moved out of the house. Once in a while her sons and daughters will come and visit her. But it's quite irritating for her to keep sweep some rubbish and throw at our house.

Our neighbors are mostly our relatives. It is qite fun becuase every weekends we always have a get together affair wherein we eat outside of our houses. My non-relative neighbors are quite ok. I'm not really close to them, sometimes I just try to ignore them. We don't actually have any selfish neighbors.

I can classify all my neighbors into one category. CRAZY! Works well for all of us. One neighbor doesn't like the height of our grass from our driveway to their yard. They usually cut our grass on their side whenever they mow. LOL Our other neighbor put his trash on our car hauling trailer instead of taking it to the curb. He lived across the street. SEE? CRAZY!

The neighbor are my left is very nice and help out and when he is gone we help him by feeding his dogs. Now on my right noone lives there. Across the road I do not know very well and they are both teachers so I do not see them much. the few time I have talk to them they have been very nice even came to my yard sale and brought somethings this summer.

My neighbor is a considerate person who believes people residing close to each other should be in good terms. She will readily smile and help when it is required. And neighbors are perfect people to chat up to if you feel bored at your home.

My husband and I currently have two neighbors. The one neighbor is a single guy. He can be loud when he's home but he's barely home, so we deal with it! Our other neighbor is a single mom of 3 little boys. For having 3 children they tend to be rather quiet. We can of course hear them but it's nothing compared to some loud neighbors we use to have where we use to live! Truthfully I'm quite happy with my current neighbors.

i am not that close to our neighbors. they are a fence away and we always see them clean their frontyard. we just smile at each other and seldom get to talk to each other. but there was an instance in the past when the children were still young and i could not contact our landline. i made a request through a phone call to their landline, and ask our househelper to answer the call from their house. they gladly granted my request. the neighbor to the right is also a kind one. in the past, when we have to go to the province for an occasion, we always request them to keep an eye on the closed house. they gladly did. on my part, when the mango trees in my yard bear fruit, i give both neighbors some of it. it is always ideal and good to maintain a good relationship with neighbors. in times of emergencies, where can we seek help but them who are near us.

I have both knods of neighbors, some of them care and share and most of them do not worry about others. I believe that if somebody moves in those who are there for a long time should try to start a converstion which never happens anyway.
