Whether they're next door, across the hall or across the street, we all have neighbours. Uni might mean couple of late nights here and there, but you always need to be respectful.
So, take note from our fave on-screen characters to become the perfect neighbour...
- Introduce yourself
Go knock on their door and introduce yourself if you don't already know them.
- Don't be a grump
Greeting them with a frown and an hour long rant about your other neighbours, the uni, or your course is not going to help make friends...
- Always greet them in a friendly manner
- or at least like Penny, be tolerant...
- But don't forget to knock.
Even if they're your best friends or you've known them years, don't just barge in. Respect their privacy, like Sheldon...
(although knocking once is enough!)
- Always ask if you want to borrow something
Just because they let you use their last egg once doesn't mean you should expect them to do it all the time, be polite and always ask first.
- Stick to arrangements
If you make plans to meet up with your neighbours, try not be late. Next time they might not let you in...
- Be considerate
You wouldn't want to be woken up at 3am by next door's conversation or Spotify playlist, so what makes you think someone else would?
- Keep it down
If your neighbours do ask you to keep it down, respect their wishes and keep it quiet.
Whether you're always spending time with them or have the odd disagreement, neighbours will always be just a knock away. Get to know them and it could be the start of a beautiful friendship...
