Campaign Urges Neighbors To Greet Each Other! Kumbaya Nonsense!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Swedish housing company announced a $137,000 campaign aimed at encouraging neighbors to greet one another.

A pamphlet advises neighbors to prepare open-ended greetings and avoid yes-or-no questions. "



A brochure instructs residents on how to make small talk with their neighbors. I don`t need no stinkin` pamphlet to teach me how to make small talk to my moron neighbors.

I prefer yes-or-no questions to open-ended greetings that will give my neighbors an opportunity to bore me to death.

The only questions or statements I am likely to say to a neighbor:

*Is that your dog`s crap on my front lawn?

*Why the hell are you looking at me?

*Yeah, it`s a lovely day, now get the hell out of my face.

$137,000 down the crapper, what a wonderful world!
