Does your neighborhood do this? Mine does!

The majority of the people who live on my street have lived here a very long time. Most are the original owners (35+ tears). There are 7 of us who are very close. Throughout the year and especially during the holidays, if we see a package delivered to one of the houses, we will call/text the homeowner to see if they want us to grab their packages for them and hold them until they are home.

I just did this today for the lady across the street from me.

Do you and your neighbors look out for each other like this? We also let them know when we are out of town and if someone will be house sitting or coming by to check on the house. We also call for suspicious activities around their homes and I have keys to at least 3 of their homes. A couple have keys to ours.

No. I don't know any of my neighbors. All rentals, so no ones stays very long...except me.

No but I am taking a neighbor to a church on Wednesday so she can get presents for her kids. It seemed to make her day when I said yes

No. I wish. My neighbors spread rumors about us.

We live in an apt and a guy that lives above us (and parks his motorcycle by our door) picked up one of our packages one day and left a note on our door because he just happened to be working on his bike that day. There has been a theft problem in our complex recently so I thought it was really nice of him.

No, I don't like the people on either side of me.

That's super sweet! We are really far from our neighbors but I'd love that if I was in a development

We would probably do the we are out of town, please keep a watch thing but that is it. We are all friendly but we all keep to our own space for the most part. The kids interact and are all friends. The neighbor on our right has a boy two weeks older than our ds so we see him a good bit.
