Trini Guide To Being A Good Neighbour
Trinidadian Guide To Being A Good Neighbour
When you live in a community you live among other people - you are not an island unto yourself. In small communities this is especially true because what you do can greatly affect those around you. As a neighbour you should be considerate by:
1. Do not blast the sound of your music or TV. Your music or TV set is for YOUR enjoyment, not for everyone else to hear.
2. Do not use your home as a mechanic shop by revving your engine constantly or making banging noises every day.
3. There is a good enough sanitary system in place by local government - you do NOT need to burn trash and leaves causing the smoke and fumes to enter the homes of others.
4. There is a difference between being observant, having a neighbourhood watch and simply 'mackoing' (Eavesdropping) - allow your neighbour their privacy.
