I find most of the people living in my apartment building are mostly friendly, at least having the courtesy of saying hello or acknowledging me when they run into me. I am the longest renting tenant in the building, so I get some credit for that I suppose. Some are not native speakers, and yet they make an effort that is appreciated. I am a reasonably friendly person and I absolutely expect this courtesy of others. There have been a few oddballs over the years - one such person even took the same bus to work as me for years, but could not summon the courtesy to say hello. I really feel sorry for folks who are too shy, rude or so self absorbed that they can not engage with others in their world or at the very least their neighbors. I'm not bothered by unfriendly neighbors, but I certainly do consider them odd.

i have a separate folder of pics of all my rooms, appliances, and closets (including computer serial numbers) - i've been robbed once and carry renter's insurance - but thought in the event of some mishap, i'd have photo documentation on my belongings if i ever had to make a claim.
