16 People Who Know What the Drama of the Neighborhood Is All About
Neighbors are different — some greet you every day and make your shared staircase look beautiful, others are obsessed with revenge and play loud music every evening. And every time people see a truck parked in front of their house and unloading new furniture, they secretly hope that the newcomers are good people. However, we never know whether we will get the one who loves to listen to rock music in the morning or the one who is ready to share all their stuff with you.
We at Bright Side are sure that any changes should start with ourselves. That’s why if you want to have good neighbors, you need to become a cool neighbor for them first.
“Our neighbors store the things they don’t need near the common elevator. There are many interesting things, clothes, and books that can be found there. Those who need them, take them.”
