State Farm can just go ahead and step aside as far as I’m concerned, because there’s no substitute for an actual good neighbor.

I mean, when Carol down the street brings me cookies she doesn’t charge me $80/month for it, just sayin.

There’s really nothing better than a good neighbor, as these stories from Reddit can attest.

15. The doggo

He slim. He trim. He real proud of him.

My 90yo neighbor hasn’t walked her dog in years so I volunteered to do it for her. So proud of Buddy’s weight loss!!! from aww

14. The sneak

A pair of star crossed lovers take their place…

When you do not have a doggo but your neighbor does… from aww

13. The Book of Sundays

Let the light stream in on you.

This is my 98 year old neighbor and friend. She is afraid to go to church so every Sunday I go over and set her up to watch a livestream of mass. Recently, I found the book of Sunday’s so she can follow along. She is such a blessing to me? from MadeMeSmile

12. The panel

Bear in mind, a lot of these are from the dark times of 2020.

My old man removed a fence panel so he can share a beer with his neighbour from CasualUK

11. The gift

This is my stick. Without me, it is nothing. Without it, I am nothing. There are many like it, but this stick’s mine.

Our 4 year old twin neighbours left a little gift for Fira. She loved it so much she carried it for her entire walk! from rarepuppers

10. The beer summit

If only Wilson could see. He’d be so proud.

These neighbors adjusted their fence so they could enjoy a beer together with social distance (r/pics) from MadeMeSmile

9. Cool people

Good to know there are some around.

Lovely note from my new neighbours! from MadeMeSmile

8. Check it out

When you agree to housesit but really you’re just crashing.

I’m on vacation for a week and asked my neighbor to go check on our cat. He checked on more than that. from funny

7. Giving thanks

No one is alone.

A neighbor I’ve never even spoken to saw that I was home alone all day on Thanksgiving and brought me this ? from HumansBeingBros

6. State of the art

Such a heartbreakingly beautiful sentiment.

My neighbor just passed away and his wife is still quarantined which means nobody can go over to comfort her. He was a public school art teacher so the neighbors got together and made this for her to let her know how much he meant to us and our community. from MadeMeSmile

5. A little bounce

Gotta keep the little ones happy.

We recently had a death in our family. In our family that usually means families will come over every day for a couple days, ALL DAY. This means at least 25-30 kids outside out of control and wild for the entire day. Today the neighbor rented a bouncy house for the entire day, just for the kids. from HumansBeingBros

4. Welcome to the neighborhood!

What an absolute legend.

This is Dick Paul. We just moved into a new neighborhood, and when I went to mow the front lawn, he was already at it. Said he does it once for all the new neighbors as a welcoming gift. Thanks Dick Paul! from pics

3. The treasure box

Man, that is so cool! Got some good games in there, too!

2. For later

The puppy looks like he’s intrigued by the offer.

1. Abgusht

Hard for me to say, DEFINITELY not hard to eat.

I had such a shitty day. Valentine’s day, husband away, alone with 3 boys and too busy to even make food for myself. My Iranian neighbor just brought over abgusht, a stew with lamb and chickpeas. Just because she thought I could be hungry. from MadeMeSmile

It’s always heartwarming to hear a good neighbor story.
