I’m so sweet to my neighbors. Especially when they are out dove hunting along the fence line and their gunshot falls on me while I’m out in the yard. I yell over to their property, in my most sunshine-y voice: Hello, I’m over here! (I can’t see them because they are hiding from the doves.)
No reason to get snippy, right? Especially since they are the ones with the loaded shotguns pointed in my direction.
