    So I just moved, am I...

    Supposed to introduce myself to the neighbors on my street or are they supposed to introduce themselves to me? I'm not a people person and dunno what to do.

    I know my nextdoor neighbor but haven't met anyone else on my street besides a friendly wave when coming/going.

    With the covid and everything going on am I supposed to knock on doors and introduce myself?Do I shake hands? Fucking 2020 I swear...

    Avoid all introductions and try not to make eye contact.

        Say nothing, put out a BLM matters sign, Trump 2020, Build the Pipeline, Hang a rainbow flag above your USA flag and things will be fine, no introductions needed.

            Wait til they come over at 2am to tell you to shut the hell up with the impact, then give them a beer.

            We had part of a Slinky. But I straightened it.

              I believe protocol is to fire off a few rounds into the air, followed by a rolling burn out down the street- have to announce your arrival.

                It's usually the music and the grinder



                I have to turn the music up to hear it over the grinder

                  I'll preface my comments with: I'm an extreme introvert. I don't care to deal with many people at a given time.

                  My previous house was people coming by to introduce themselves as I was moving in. By end of day, I met about 8 neighbors. This was on a street where the lots were ~1/3 acre each.

                  My new house is in a "neighborhood" where my ~6 acre lot is somewhat small. Close to four years later, I know maybe 4 neighbors... one of them a Pirate member­čśÄ While I'm not known, my house is known; cool mailbox and concrete driveway plus the cruiser graveyard With that said, my wife knows more of our neighbors than I do.

                    I know my neighbors by asking if I can hunt their fields, telling them they cant hunt my land, or asking them to come drag out whatever I got stuck. I give away plenty of firewood to the cool ones. Everyone minds their own business, the way it should be.

                        I am not a people person so I mind my business. If they come over then cool I will chat but I usually keep to myself.

                        I have two neighbors about 50 yards on each side and both stopped by. One leaves me alone, the other just keeps coming over to B.S.

                          My nearest neighbor is right at a half mile west of me on the other side of the road. my house and trees are between him and my shop. I recently bought some Pyle outdoor karaoke speakers for the shop, Im trying to be all 2020 and sync my phone or whatever the fucking kids call it. Anyhow, It was loud inside the 40x60 shop but needed more bass. so I added a couple twelves I had in a box with an amp. Now it is dumb loud. One afternoon a couple weeks ago I was out running the planer which is plenty loud so the classic country needed to be just a bit louder. My neighbor walks in the shop, said he could hear Hank coming from up here and wanted to see what was playing that loud! Neighborhood music he called it.

                            I met my neighbors as the need arose.
