Do You Know Your Neighbour?

Have we become too aloof, unfriendly, introverted or just never think about, who we live next door to anymore? I have not known my neighbour for years, even decades, literally.

What happened to (those days) when you introduced yourself to the person that just moved in, across the street, or the apartment that is a stone throw from yours. A simple ‘hello’ or ‘great to meet you’. Never happens, too busy maybe?

Now when I can’t find my friend in the house, I text her. No longer do I yell or persevere to look for them – I just pick up my smartphone, and type in what I need to know.

Crazy. So what has happened to the art of communication with our neighbours? Has this time expired?
