They trust you with their keys
A lot of people leave a spare key with a neighbor in case someone in the family gets locked out. If you’ve become that safe haven for your neighbors, you can feel good knowing they consider you reliable—and the type of understanding person they’d want to call in an awkward emergency. Here’s why this man always keeps his keys in his ignition.
You keep the noise down
While no one would expect you to be a silent little mouse all the time, your neighbors will appreciate a bit of peace and quiet while they’re in bed. If you take outdoor parties inside by 11 p.m. or avoid mowing your lawn in the wee hours of the morning, everyone around will be well rested and more cheerful.
