this family of five lives two houses down from me....but we didn't meet the good old fashioned way of chatting to our neighbours. nope. i met the dad when he had applied for a position at a company i was working at. it was funny because my colleague at the time looked at his resume and said - "oh, this guy is from coquitlam...you must know him." to which i snapped back "coquitlam isn't that small" - then i looked at his address and saw that he lived two houses down from me...and that maybe, if i was neighbourly, i would have known him and his family.
