What's the weirdest thing you ever did to a neighbour or they ever did to you? Okay, it'd be pretty weird if a neighbour knocked on my door and asked to borrow some sugar...just cos we're in the city and I'd tell them to just go down the road to the shop or all hours convenience store!
When I was a kid growing up I remember my neighbour locked themselves out of their house and they asked my brother to climb in from our balcony onto their balcony...gee they are so lucky my brother didn't fall doing it!
This year my smoking neighbour also locked themselves out and asked for access to my balcony so they could climb into theirs...
it was good timing cos shortly after when they were pissing me off with their cigarette smoke at 1am in the morning I could yell at them and tell them off and they haven't smoked in the vicinity since!
In any case often I go down the stairs or even just open my door and hear great music...after standing there for quite some time to work out where exactly the sound was coming from, I isolated it to a particular unit. Cos the owner didn't respond to my knocking I left a note under the door asking for identification of the music and could he leave a note under my door to let me know...cos of course I just had to know!!!
Fast forward a few months on...and the same thing happened again! This time I left a note under the door again but with my email instead thinking it would be easier for him to respond...in anycase to cut a long story short tonight I picked up the two cds I had left in his mailbox....*sigh! so nice...now I am listening to gypsy flamenco type guitar or something....like that relaxing stuff you hear in open air malls and markets on Sunday afternoons...good stuff!
Oh yeah the other weird thing that happened this year was I was wishing for money and a visiting neighbour knocked on my door and handed me some cash to borrow my garage for a few days that same day :)
On another note...how jinxed am I! I was already preparing for the apocalypse cos my 11 friend is leaving in November and E is leaving in September...today I also found out D is ditching his studies here and going to start the entire thing again but in China! Sheesh...now I see why I'm a hermit- this endless cycle of friend exodus is getting tiring...:p Conclusion: no point getting attached to anybody...some people were supposed to be an island I think LOL!
