Do you like your neighbors?!

Do you get along with your neighbors?

Do you tend to keep more to yourself when it comes to neighbors?

We have one that has gone crazy.  He has come over and yelled nonsense at hubby, threatened us because he claimed we kidnapped and killed his daughter.  The cops are always being called on him.  The other neighbors are fine.

There are fields in between me and my neighbors so I'm not that close to them. My husbands grandparents are on one side and a man who recently passed away was on the other. He didnt have any kids or anything and other then coming by a few times to use my phone and to ask for things I didnt see him much.

We don't really know any of them well but everyone on our street near us has been pretty quiet and we haven't really had anything to complain about. There was a kid who hopped our fence a few weeks ago to get a baseball and then couldn't figure out how to get back over (we keep our gate locked with a padlock and I don't thinke he expected that) and 6 other baseballs so far have been found in our yard, but in the grand scheme of how bad neighbors can be, it really isn't a big deal.

I've only met 4 houses worth of neighbors since i've been here. One is a stick in the mud all up in your buisness asshole. The others are pretty nice. We all pretty much keep to ourselves. we speak or visit a minute when we are outside or whatever. I can't say the same for all of their kids necessarily. One in particular.

Same here. Everyone around here seems to keep to themselves anyways. Me n hubby have become home bodies the last 8 months.

 i dont really know my neighbors. we wave hi if we are out at the same time, but thats it. I know if i ever had a problem and needed help, i could always go knock on thier door, but really, we all keep to ourselves

We're pretty close to most of our neighbors. Since we rarely go anywhere we're always the ones watching peoples houses.  I have keys for 5 of the neighbors houses as a matter of fact. lol  One of my closest friends lives 2 houses down and 3 of our kids are the same age.  I spend almost every evening in front of her house watching the kids play and yelling at people driving too fast down our street.  I'm pretty lucky with my neighbors, makes me feel safer knowing so many awesome people are always around.

Lol I am sure mine can here my kids too n sure they hate me by now. My son is so loud and when he gets mad he throws a fit and screams. Him n his sister fight about everything now.

Quoting Hannahluvsdogs:

They're ok. The neighbors on one side are weird and we don't really talk to them. The neighbors on the other side are nice, I chat with the mom sometimes but I keep a distance. Their DD is one of those kids who's adorable one minute and a holy terror the next, at least once a week she's in their backyard throwing a tantrum that I can hear from inside my house.

My neighbor on oneside is a vampire, works third shift it was 3 months after she moved in that I actually saw her will say hi and is friendly when out of an evening. The neighbors on the other side are cool help each other out. Know when my kids misbehave at school before they get home she works for the school. Like em their front door is away from mine so some time you hear them talking on the porch and we pop off into each others conversations or joke around about hearing voices again.
