How well do you know your neighbors?
I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and I have lived in my current home for nearly three years. I recently realized how isolated our society has become when I realized that do not know my neighbors, not even the neighbors with whom I share a driveway (there are six homes on the driveway). We wave at each other if we happen to see each other, but we do not talk or know each other’s names. I left my door partially open and had a dead battery and so I needed my car jump started. If I knew my neighbors I could have asked one of them for a jump start, instead I asked a friend from the next city over to give me a jump. I am curious if you know your neighbors well enough to ask for favors?
