Do you talk to your neighbours?

25 posts in this topic

I find it funny how you can live on your road for so many years... and not even speak to your neighbours

 

take a step back and look at the scenario... its pretty f*cked up

 

how weird are us humans

 

or is this just a london/uk thing?

Uk thing

 

not so sure,

 

back in the day the road I grew up in was predominantly white and most of them were friendly and communicable

 

Had street parties from time to time during them war memorial days and shit like that 

 

but then the Asians and blax started moving in then all that stopped lol. Nobody says shit to anybody no more

i looked out my window and saw an asian man come out his house and it just made me think that hes lives there im sure for more than 15 years and ive never spoken to him along with the other various people on my road

 

it would be kinda nice to go to neighbours houses and jam... u no what i mean

 

(couple years back a white family opposite our house 4 doors up gave us a christmas card saying come over)...

 

we never went over... till this day i remember that christmas card... such a par

I think this type of thing is more prevalent in London. You lot are anti social as fuck.

 

Everywhere I lived in Liverpool we knew most of the neighbours and spoke to them. Same in one of the residential areas I lived at in Manchester.

 

I do think it's probably a generational thing though and especially in London so much of it is rented properties so tenants are barely there longer than a year and different cultures that people have just become stand-offish towards.

I say hello to all my neighbours

Ethnic parents are referred to uncle or auntie at the end of each hello

Always say hello.

 

However if they stop collecting my deliveries when I'm out, I stop talking to them.

I've just always been on auto-pilot....like everyone else I guess...

 

Never even thought about how strange it is to walk past familiar strangers really..... but in retrospect... it is actually rude

 

 

 

I'm going to make an effort to acknowledge as many people on my road as possible over the next few days and see what happens

Funny you bring up the parcel ting.

 

I would rather my neighbours didn't take in my shit if its going to be a long ting getting it back.

 

One set of neighbours, it took near enough a fucking week to get my parcel, I actually called the company to say I couldn't get it, and how the people had stolen it.

 

Whenever I take in someones shit, im eager to get it out of my yard, therefore im constantly trying to drop it off to them, seems this isn't the norm as I've had to chase down diff neighbours for my stuff.

 

But deffo a London ting on the stiffness, just seems everywhere outside of LDN people seem more sociable

You know what I find more weird is how you can see someone in your bits, everyday and never ever speak or even nod to them... Then see them in a completely different ends just once and then greet them lol.

I know I can't be the only one, that has experienced this.

Honestly couldn't identify 50% of the people on my road if I had to point them out in a supermarket or any other type of busy location

It is quite weird tbh

Probably wouldn't recognise my neighbours if I was out and about but always stop and say hello and exchange pleasantries when I see them.
