Are You a Good Neighbour?

A had a conversation with a work colleague this week regarding kids in classes. While the following isn't related to the kids it is about how we so often think and behave.
The new owner  moved in and asked the next door neighbour what the people were like around here.
He answered, "What were they like where you used to live?"
"Oh", he said, "They were a pretty good bunch , we got on well, helped each other and enjoyed each others company."
The reply was, "Well I reckon that's how you will find them around here".
On the other hand if he had answered that he had not got along with them and that they rude and unhelpful, the reply would have been exactly the same!
