Thank you, Chris, for reminding the world what it means to be a good neighbor.
It’s not clear where Chris lives or exactly who Chris is, but this welcome letter — if genuine — speaks volumes about its author.
It has been shared across social media, and though its origin is unknown, the story is universal enough to touch us all.
It seems a new tenant found a letter with helpful information on his or her door.
It included important phone numbers, tips about the apartment’s quirks and offers to help with maintenance issues.
It ended with a gift.
“I know getting settled can be crazy and time consuming, so dinner is on me,” the letter said. “I am enclosing a gift card so you can have an evening without having to worry about cooking. Happy house warming.”
Some wonder if the letter is a marketing ploy, as a restaurant gift card can be seen in plain view.
