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.
