I believe that in every community very special relationships occur between neighbors. After our family and friends, neighbors are the closest people we have around us. In my opinion, the qualities of a good neighbor are helpfulness, tactfulness and lack of unsound curiosity.
To begin with, many people expect their neighbors to be helpful or to do them a favor when they are in trouble. In my opinion, a good neighbor would not refuse to keep an eye on our house or apartment when we are away. What is more, good neighbors would never leave us outside in the rain if we have lost our home keys. In addition, they would always suggest using their phone if ours is disconnected. Or they would never refuse to lend us some sugar for our morning coffee.
Apart from latter mentioned, I consider that tactfulness is a quality as important as helpfulness is. I would expect that my good neighbor would not tell every one what the color of my dressing gown is. Neither he nor she would call the police because of loud music on my birthday party, for example.
Finally many people believe their neighbors display a lot of unsound curiosity. What does it mean? These people feel that their neighbors try to spy on every step they make. To be watched twenty-four hours a day is not only uncomfortable but also very irritating.
Sometimes many misunderstandings occur between neighbors. As a matter of fact, to have a good neighbor around you could be a real bless. And if we are polite, helpful and if we show required respect to our neighbors, I believe that sooner or later they would treat us in the same way.
