Tips for Old People on being Student's neighbors

Please, oh please, follow these guidelines if you've got students living next door to you.

1-- DONT LOOK DOWN AT THEM.
it only makes us not like you, and then its already a downward spiral.
2-- DONT KNOW IT ALL, EVEN IF YOU DO
Once again, we know it all (sarcasm) so you knowing it all makes us angry when it conflicts with our knowing it all.
3-- ESTABLISH CREDIBILITY
Try to show your neighbors that you were there too, but without reminiscing. Just say things like "thats cool you're building a half pipe in your back yard." (we really are!)

Those three tips might help you avoid being hated by your neighbors.

the end.

hey elder bennett this is marcy from highlands ward in lakeland florida. i stumbled onto your journal a couple of weeks ago and thought maybe i should let you know because, yeah, i've been feeling pretty stalkerish lately. so yeah, just saying hi.

ps. it's ok if you don't remember me, cuz i'm pretty sure i remember you but i'm not 100%, also remember jessica, the 16 year old you baptised anyway both her parents were at church last sunday. do you mind if i gave her a link to your journal. i told her i found it while looking for missionary stuff a little bit ago and she wanted to know how you were doing.
