The sheer pleasure of not living among cattle or in an unheated forest cabin in 2021 isn’t limited to putting 2/3 of your income (yes, both jobs) in rent. You also have the great advantage of not having to be alone. Ever. In principle, life in an apartment building is like an episode of «Friends» – but the cast includes a family with small children, a family with teenage children, a weird and probably sociopathic bachelor, a couple newly in love and a couple who has just separated but still lives together because they cannot afford two apartments. Just with very thin yet not noise-inhibiting walls in between. Moreover, hearing the lovely sound of the usual Wednesday party in the flat above you makes you feel like being in the good old pre-Corona times. Except, of course, that a potentially fatal and happily mutating disease is still eating its way through densely populated areas. Isn’t that fun? Well, at least you don’t have the following 12 neighbors.
Took in a parcel for my neighbour across the road earlier. I just went to his house to tell him, he opened the door and there was one of my cats, sitting on his chair all comfy.

The dad next door to our apartment in Brooklyn just took his small kids outside to let them scream as loud as they want for a few minutes before taking them back inside

My neighbour is moving out.
5 years ago when she moved in my husband met her before me & told me her name was Liz. For 5 years I’ve called her Liz, even written it on Xmas cards. Today I found out it’s actually Angela.
5 fucking years.

My neighbour’s 4-year-old has been learning Spanish since lockdown.
He still can’t say «please» though, which I think is poor for four.

One of my neighbors put up a Trump sign and the very next day the couple next door put up a massive Black Lives Matter flag next to a massive Pride flag and they are my new heroes.

My wife threw my new football over the wall as she thought it belonged to our neighbour’s 9 year old lad.
I’ve had to ask them if I can please have my ball back.
I’m 36 years old.

Why am I so weird?? my neighbour started to leave their apartment at the same time as me so to avoid talking to them I tried to quickly dash back in but my door had closed so they just saw me spin around and bash into my own closed door then turn around again 😬

Him: What are the neighbors’ names again? The couple next door?
Me: Duncan and Angus.
Him: Not the dogs, the people.
Me: Why the fuck would I know that?

Good morning to my neighbor who walked out on to his back porch, did a sun salutation, and then yelled FUUUUUUUUCK so loud that he startled the birds.
