Neighbor hood kids

 What is it with the neighbor kids.

They come here almost everyday asking for things.  Dont get me wrong I dont mind helping out, here and there but not almost everytime they ring the doorbell.  I am not a Kroger, I can not afford to help them out all the time.  It is getting to the point I dont even answer my door.

 This is why living out in the country is the best. Closest neighbor is 2 miles away in one direction and he is just a really really sweet old man, the other neighbor that lives in the other direction from our house is almost 3 miles away and they only have one child but he has physical disabilities and isn't allowed to go on his own.

Where are the parents of these kids??

I've heard people say before they have this problem. I've never had to deal with it. IDK maybe I look mean or something lol

What kinds of things are they asking for?  A cup of milk or sugar, an egg, a roll of tp?  I don't get it.  My neighbor has asked for an egg before or other ingredients when she was in the middle of making something and we garden share (I grow stuff she doesn't, she grows stuff I don't and we trade), but I don't expect her to provide me with all the ingredients for dinner.

 Some times it is mayo things like that. On Friday it was to borrow my laptop to do home work,  I told them no on the laptop.  Because my hubby would flip is lid.

 Maybe moving would be a good idea. But I can not afford that right now.  That is one good thing about living in the country

Dont me mad at the kids , where are these kids parents? I hope these kids really aint hungry. Because i know some kids do have food at home, but they still ask neighbors for food. Most kids do this, unless their parents teach them not too, because it could be dangerous knocking on people doors. Some kids are just greedy, they just being a typical kid. My kids do the same thing. I always keep fridge stock.

I would be bored out of my mind, living that far from civilization.
