My Fastidious Neighbor


That sidewalk looks pretty clean, doesn’t it? You’ve no idea. This guy lives two doors down from me. I know neither him nor anything about him except that when it snows he’s the best neighbor in the world.

He first brushes all the snow off his front bushes. He then clears the snow off his garbage cans. This is when the fun starts. He shovels and shovels again and again and again. I just watched him go for over an hour nonstop. He’d shovel one end of his sidewalk and then the other end and then go back to clear away what snow had since fallen on the first end.

Finally satisfied, he turned his shovel upside down and spent several minutes cleaning it with a small brush. I’m not kidding. He then got out a broom and swept for twenty minutes, including underneath his garbage cans.

    You should know your neighbour because you are out there with him, cleaning the walk.
