NEIGHBORS

A house was just put up for sale and a man in a car was driving by when he spotted the sign. He stopped, backed up, parked his car and got out. He walked around the house and got ready to get back in his car when he spotted an elderly gentleman sitting on the porch of the house just next door.

The man walked up to the gentleman and said, “Hey, what kind of neighbors do you have around here anyway?”

The old gentleman said, “What kind of neighbors do you have where you’re living now?”

The man said, “Hey, the worst kind; they borrow my tools and don’t bring them back, they steal my morning paper; they gossip all the time about me. They’re just the worst.”

The old gentleman said, “We got the same kind of neighbors here.”

The man said, “Boy, I’m glad I talked to you; I won’t be moving into this neighborhood,” and he got into his car and left.

A little while later another car stopped, backed up and parked. A man and a woman got out, read the sign, and looked the house over. They too spotted the old man on the porch and walked over and asked the same question the first man had asked, “What kind of neighbors do you have around here?”

Again the old man replied, “What kind of neighbors do you have where you’re living now?”

The man said, “Hey, the best kind; they borrow my tools and bring them back in better condition than when they borrowed them; they share their morning paper with us and we split the paper bill to save money. They’re just the best.”  The lady added, “We even swap coupons and baby-sitting to save money.”  They’re great.”

The old gentleman said, “We got the same kind of neighbors here.”

The man said, “Boy, I’m glad I talked to you. We like the house; I think we’ll buy it.”

The old gentleman said, “Well come on up on the porch and I’ll ask the wife to bring out some lemonade.
