Everybody needs good neighbors
With a little understanding
You can find a perfect friend

Should be there for one another
That's when good neighbors
Become good.. friends"

At least, that's how it should be. But apparently, it's not the case here in Oman.

Our fine neighbors behind us have decided to blow out their steam - or whatever it is - in their own fashionable way. With a bang.

It was around 5pm when I had left the house today for some errands and coming back home at around 10pm, to my surprise, they were partying, like it was 2999.

You'd think there be some sort of decency because of the type of neighborhood and culture that we adhere to here in Oman and that the people who live across you would ask you about such things. But this is very uncommon.

Perhaps their foreignors. Then again, maybe not. That's the not the point here.

Courtesy calls for respect in all manners of life. Especially in neighborly relationships.

I guess no one thought about that when they started building that flat apartment behind our house that these kind folks are now partying in.

Now tell me that this has nothing to do with Muscat Municipality or the Ministry of Housing's plans.

but then again - these are modern times when quotes such as the one you mentioned, wonder carelessly into the wind.

How unfortunate.
