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.
14. The sneak
A pair of star crossed lovers take their place…
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.
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.
10. The beer summit
If only Wilson could see. He’d be so proud.
9. Cool people
Good to know there are some around.
8. Check it out
When you agree to housesit but really you’re just crashing.
7. Giving thanks
No one is alone.
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.
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.
