This is the neighbor that dreams are made of. He drove by, saw their porch on fire and casually put it out. Badass.

When my daughter was first born my wife and I were sleep deprived as one is when taking care of a newborn. One night I must have forgotten to close our garage door before going to bed. We wake up at 11pm to the sound of our garage door closing. Then I get a text from our neighbor telling me that he was taking out the trash and saw that our door was open so he used the keypad to close it for us. We're lucky to have good neighbors like that.

u/Blood-Money 1d ago

Growing up we lit off some bloom flowers in a friend’s backyard, ended up setting a bunch of tall dry grass on fire. The hose was wrapped up at the bottom of the fire so we couldn’t get it out or get around it to get to the spout to just turn it on and hope it helped.

Her neighbor hopped the fence from his yard to spray the fire down and then disappeared after. Never saw him again. Didn’t even stick around for a thank you or anything. Just told us not to be so stupid next time.

If you're playing with fire you better have a way to put it out.

And fireworks count as fire lol

u/Competitive-Ad-4822 1d ago

I've done this exact thing...except I was poor and riding a bike. Someone in the neighborhood put their cigarette out in a plant pot next to their porch and wooden upright. It was burning halfway up the beam and starting the grass by the time I was able to get there, knock, and pull their hose out. Their actual neighbor across the street though? On their phone watching a teenager do what they should've been

Do you watch your neighbors' houses 24/7 just waiting for one to go up in flames? If I happened to look out the window and saw flames/smoke coming from a neighbor's house of course I'd go alert them and call 911 and assume most would. I know America is far from perfect, but don't understand the constant bashing on here lol.

Go Google the bystander effect and see if you feel the same way after

u/Kennedys_Dad 1d ago

Bystander effect would be if a crowd of people was standing around the fire…… this was a fire with no one around.

9

u/MichaelKilo 1d ago

The term “bystander effect” was coined after the murder of Kitty Genovese. The bystanders were in apartments not in a group. They all claimed to have called the police. There weren’t any records of calls. It allowed the murder to return 10 minutes later and finish murdering her.

None of the bystanders were in eyesight of each other. You don’t have to be in a group to have the bystander effect take place. The term was coined when none of the bystanders were even in a group.

https://www.simplypsychology.org/Kitty-Genovese.html

21

u/PixelatedDread 1d ago

It still applies to this situation. Someone could be driving by and see the fire and assume the homeowner already knows or that a neighbor will tell them or another car already drove by and called the fire department or the car behind them is going to stop and help. It doesnt require a literal group of bystanders.

My neighbors are so awesome, I had to review the people that we are selling the house to. In the end we had to sell it for a bit less the highest offer, but gifting my neighbors with good neighbors is the least what I could do for them. They were so good to us, we became good friends as well. The buyers were so confused and happy that the husband and their daughter didn’t understand it for a good 15 minutes why we chose them instead of the offer that was way higher. They’ll know soon.

u/globalgreg 2d ago

What was wrong with the other people?

u/lightwhite 2d ago Wholesome Seal of Approval

They didn’t feel right. We had two old couples that had openly stated that they didn’t like children play around, another rich posh couple came and whined about all the toys and garden and the layout of the parking lot. The highest bidders Came from crowded cities with a ton of cash. They felt like those villainous people from the financial district. They wanted to strip a garden full of bee and butterfly sanctuary we build in the small patch of 8x5 meters for last 6 years. It’s a very kid friendly neighborhood. They love the bees and butterflies and tend those plants to get more each year.

Kids go in and out in any house and stay for dinner at any open house in the complex where they wish.

We asked the current buyers to have a chat with neighbors too and they seemed more like minded people with the neighborhood. So everyone happy. Their kids felt home right away in 15 minutes. While we were discussing things, they started to play outside together with ours and it felt good.

We all are the first owners of this newly built neighborhood. We got to know each other from our youth and start so it became community of sort.

Freedom of being able to choose whom you want to sell to was a great relief for us back then . We sold on time, because no one can buy any houses amore due to raised interests.

u/just-kath 1d ago

I agree. When we moved into this house 35 years ago, after some very difficult years for our family, we had really good neighbors. We looked out for each other, did little things for each other, it was so nice.

Then people died, people moved, and houses changed hands. My neighborhood is now one where if there are 3 people outside, no one talks to anyone. No one is there to help.

One house has a guy, his teenage son, and his mother. They are absolute nightmares. Police every week, the kid shot up my windows, siding and windshield of my car, a neighbors car and at a neighbor ( now moved away) that ran to try to stop him. He was 9.

More stories, but you get the drift. I wish we had more folks like you...thanks you for thinking of your neighborhood, OP.

46

u/ilikedirt 1d ago

Thank you for doing this. Someone did this for me, ten years ago, and they didn’t have to. We now live in a great neighborhood with great schools surrounded by kids and wonderful neighbors. Other buyers wanted to flip the house. We’ve made it a home and have invested ourselves into this community.

u/lightwhite 1d ago

Now it’s your turn :)

u/ilikedirt 1d ago

But I don’t want to move, I like my house and I have little kids 😆. I get what you’re saying though and we will absolutely pay it forward someday!

5

u/lightwhite 1d ago

Make sure you teach your kids how it’s done if they would ever want to leave it :) that’s the same for me . On my book, a good neighbor is more valuable than the estate, if I may be honest.

u/ilikedirt 1d ago

Teaching my kids the importance of community and service, at the expense of profit or personal gain, is essentially the core tenet of my parenting so hopefully we’re good there!

u/Kaarsty 1d ago

I’m glad you chose the buyers the way you did. We need more of that.

6

u/david98900 1d ago

That's awesome, was it a requirement of your sale to meet and vet the potential buyers?

I've never seen it done like that so just curious. I've seen written letters but that's about it.

6

u/lightwhite 1d ago

I requested explicitly to do a short interview after their visit to view. Quick checklist questions and their introduction about themselves and what they liked/disliked about the house and environment. We didn’t need a lot of visitations for bids and sale in March. It was a crazy train for house sales back then.

Our neighborhood was once exactly like this. Then one family moved, then another, and another. Now it’s an empty shell of what it once was. Rich old people moved in and it’s a ghost town where once kids roamed the streets and impromptu happy hours on the sidewalks once ruled. Good for you for making sure that didn’t happen on your watch.

Yes, and I believe it was part of one of their accreditations/certifications or something. It’s purportedly to prevent discrimination in the market.

7

u/lightwhite 1d ago

I told the real estate agent what we wanted. It took 3 agents to find one that honored our sales terms. Totally worth it!

12

u/HyperbolicModesty 1d ago

That's actually pretty good on one hand. But would likely have prevented the anecdote from happening. Tricky one, but I think eliminating racial/cultural bias/homophobia/classism etc. outweighs the latter benefit.

5

u/SatinSheets1 1d ago

Exactly. As feel good as the OC story was but it could just as easily been used negatively. Some ppl won't sell to ppl they think aren't the "right kind" of neighbors. Aka not the right race/religion/sexuality etc

I agree, although personally I think it made it more difficult for us. Doesn’t matter in the long run though because I’m in my house now!

Very much a "you'll understand this when you're older" scenario that teenagers (including myself at the time) hate with a passion. But Christ, a few decades later and I can't believe they let 16 year olds drive. Shit is terrifying.

I used to think thunderstorms and lightning were so fun and sexy or whatever - until my house got struck by lightning and started a fire inside the walls near the gas main that we would never have detected until it was too late if the firemen who responded hadn't been overly diligent in inspecting the aftermath.

The older you get you realize just how easily shit can go disastrously sideways in mere seconds and ruin your whole fucking life.

I always disliked fireworks unless you were in a more remote not dry place. We moved in this year and the neighbors across the street decided the middle of the street is a great place to launch since thier yard has tree coverage and they wanted big ones. They aimed it more toward our side and I was anxious the whole time between the possible fires from debris or them fucking up and hitting the house, the cars or the power lines directly! Fucking assholes.

People don't give a crap about livestock. I moved from the most wholesome neighborhood ever to what was supposed to be a nicer neighborhood. Like, tiger woods was my neighbor... And the shitty little teenagers would shoot fireworks at my horses starting a week before the 4th of July and extending a week after 4th of July.

My roommate's horses ran through a metal gate one time and i found them standing in the driveway freaked tf out. I found bottle rockets inside their stalls multiple times. Can you imagine being a horse not understanding wtf is going on and there's things flying in your stall(your safe space) and exploding? Who thinks that's fun or funny to do???? Psychopaths.

If you don't KNOW your roof isn't on fire, you better go check. It's the only way. Every second you can't see it's not on fire is a second it could be burning to your doom. You might have to move onto your roof now.

I realized on July 4th 2022 that I am officially an old. First time in my life I saw absolutely zero excuse for all the danger, noise, waste and pollution of fireworks. It didn't help I was feeling especially unpatriotic, but it was jarring. I've never been the guy with $1000's of fireworks, but I've also never before had none.
I'm just so over it. Fireworks are like drunk driving and Napalm Death. I sure thought they were cool once upon a time but the reason why is now totally lost on me.

A couple decades ago my friends and I were walking through a neighborhood on our way to set off some fireworks of… less than legal origin, and we came across a hedge on fire. We grabbed hoses from all the houses around, banged on their doors, someone called 911, and we held off the fire until the fire trucks came and put it out for real.

We split ASAP, didn’t need questions about the contents of our backpacks, and went on to have a lovely time being pyros in a big empty lot. Man we were dumb but at least we weren’t the idiots that set someone’s hedge on fire!

Stranger, who put out fire is exposed to the internet.

Why would you put up a fly strip outside?
