Neighbors are the people who live near us. In your opinion, what are the qualities of a good neighbor? Use specific details and examples in your answer.

I think that my neighbor at least must be friendly. In the morning when I meet my neighbor he or she should greet me and wish me to have a great day. Also, it would be great if he did not smoke. I do not smoke and I do not like to smell a smoke from cigarettes in the morning in my bedroom if I leave the windows opened. A few years ago I lived in a small community. One of my neighbors smoked every morning in front of my windows while his dog was trampling down a beautiful lawn. It was really a terrible experience, because I did not need my alarm clock to awake any more. I was awake exactly in a few seconds after my neighbor began to smoke.

From my point of view, the ideal neighbor must always be ready to offer help. For instance, If I need to go somewhere he would offer me to baby-sit my children and borrow his car. One more thing, I think it would be great if he picked up my mail and watered my plants while I was on vocation.

Finally, I think that good neighbors are those who become friends.

From my opinion it is sufficient.

However, if talk about my “ideal” neighbor I can add some extra qualities. First of all, he should allow me to listen to loud music. I think it would be great if he did not call a police if I decided to turn on my radio fully in the late evening or in the early morning. Second of all, my “ideal” neighbor should allow me to use his backyard for my party. I understand that it is almost impossible to find such a good neighbor, but if at least half of my requirements are satisfied I will appreciate it.
