I took homemade oatmeal cookies to my new neighbors 2 doors down a year ago. Haven't seen or heard from them since....no note, nada. So, if you lived around Casa Linda Forest, we'd welcome you.

And you are correct about knowing people. All of my husbands jobs have been all about who he knows on the inside. Unfortunately, none are in finance.

I haven't even gotten to the point to discuss money actually so that for a fact can't be the problem. I have no problem making less than I made on the east coast. I actually expect that. It does not impact my finances as cost of living here is so much lower.

I agree I am sort of busy to care about the fact that none of the neighboors have even tried.

How rude of those of your neighbors! If someone brought me over cookies (homemade or not) I would have made sure to invite them over for dinner or something along those lines. I guess common courtesy is disappearing all through the US.

Just because someone doesn't jump for joy and welcome new neighbors doesn't mean they are rude. Some people are simply very private and would prefer to keep to themselves.

BUT, to not write at least a thank you note, that is poor etiquette.

I didn't say that. I said that it was rude that someone would perform a gesture to welcome you to the neighborhood and you not show any appreciation.

I wasn't directing that towards you. I was just making a statement.
