Do you know yours?
I've lived in my place for 4 years and I pretty much keep to myself. I mean... apartment living is apartment living. But, Ilive in a 4plex so I guess there is no excuse to not know the names of ANY of my neighbors.
So, I figure I'll stop being a motherfucker and invite them all over for dinner when my new furniture comes in. It'll be a peace offering of sorts and sorta showing off to offset all the weird shit they probably hear coming out of my house. Who knows what they're expecting.
So if you got a cute lil invite from your neighbor for a building mixer and a night of food, wine, and winoes.... would you go even though that person hasn't so much as said hi to you in 4 years?
Don't ask me why I did that. But, I did.
If you sent me the invite, I would go. If my current neighbors sent me an invite I would not.
I would, especially if you were my neighbour, ah thank you, haha.
My past two neighbours absolutely hated me because I guess I am pretty loud but they would never say anything and just it fester until it sent them over the edge.
I just moved into this huge building, where I know no one ... but rarely, if ever see anyone.
It is creepy.
Like it is a practical joke being played on me.
Except ... I still get noise complaint letters from the management. But to be honest, I think I have seen about one or two people on my floor since I moved in December (there are about 20 apartments on my floor I think alone, haha).
I have that same prob. I say hello to mine but never have done the formal meeting thing. I am in a house, so I see them usually but not as much as if I were in a apt.
Always friendly but I think they shy away from me because of my appearance.
You haven't said a word in four years and suddenly you're inviting them over? Yeah, that's totally weird and no, I wouldn't come over.
4 years... Yeah, that could be a little odd.
"when my new furniture comes in"
That means they haven't said "hi" over the last four years either. They're as weird, if not weirder, than you.
4 years is not that bad, I mean they probably have not been the same neighbours the past 4 either.
Also ... it is like anything if you do not start out talking it just gets easier and more accepted to never talk.
This is a good way to break the ice, and probably laugh about the past few.
I wish Kramer lived across the hallway from me.
Oh Dobs you're such a flirt.
Oh I have done my bit of snooping though so I kinda know stuff about them.
The unit I share a wall with... his single and lives alone. He moved in with his wife and they were both in school at the time. Thats an expensive place for students so I suspect their parents paid for it. They were the type to be professional students... masters/doctorate kinda people. He is really skinny and alright looking and she was the fattest, ugliest woman I've ever seen. I thought they were sort of an odd couple but cool that they could make it work even though she was ugly as hell. They divorced. The only thing I said to him was "hey, you're moving out?" when I saw them carrying boxes out. He replied "No, but she is." I never saw her again. ooooooodrama
The upstairs (over the garage) neighbors are a cute gay couple with 2 stupid small dogs that bark a lot. I dream of the day those dogs run away.
In the middle are two girls. Sorta cute but really annoying sounding. they talk really loud when they pass my window. My neighborhood is super quiet. They're the type that laugh at all your jokes even if theyre not funny because they dont have any witty comebacks to say. They've only been there for a couple of months... and when i saw them i had no desire to talk to them. When they were moving in one of them skipped over to me when i was sitting outside and i put my phone to my ear and walked away. "OMG ARE YOU OUR NEIGHBOR?" ehhh...
... Well you paint quite the picture.
"This is a good way to break the ice, and probably laugh about the past few."
Truuu. And it is easier not to talk if you started off like that. The only guys who have been there almost as long as me is the gay couple. fabulous! Everyone else has been there a year and a half or less.
Yes _salisae.... what's wrong with that? If you were going to have a small party and you just hooked your place up you'd probably wait a couple weeks until your stuff comes in too. You're weird.
my neighbor is kind of goofy.
he's super into god and has a weird mustache and these two kids who run around saying please and thank-you and love to sing. a couple of future fruit cakes if you ask me.
in the morning he's like 'hi didly ho neighbor' and stuff. i always borrow things from him and don't give them back. my buddy and i shot his lawn mower full of nails with our nailguns last week. it was great. he's like 'oh no-didly' and ran off.
wait. no. thats the simpsons. nevermind.
neighbor parties are dope.
I'm watching my neighbor's cats.
We're friends, she brings over wine and weed. And i drink and smoke it.
lol at kona... I was thinking ned flanders as soon as I read "super into god..."
haha kona i was just about to say....
make sure to put a little LSD in everyones drink so they're sure to have a fun time
Start growing a crap load of plants on your porch like that woman in that Home Depot commercial. It will turn your neighbors into chatty white folks.
i purposely turn up the bass on my stereo to piss off my neighbors downstairs. they are bitches.
if my neighbor looked like you i be there.
do i ... or do i not break out the weed and assortment of pipes out for them?
