Say hello to your neighbor.
I don’t care if you:
- have agoraphobia,
- are socially awkward,
- are introverted,
- are annoyed by my children,
- suffer from a searing case of arm cramps after waving.
It shouldn’t take nine months to greet a new neighbor (and it seems to me that takes a whole lot of work to avoid them for that long, but that’s another topic.)
If you haven’t greeted your new neighbor yet, I encourage you to do so today. However, common human decency obligates you to say hello to neighbors you see coming and going on a daily basis. You don’t have to like them, or say anything more than,
If that’s too hard, then at least wave.
It makes the world a better place.
