So the super in our apartment building quit about a year ago and was never replaced, till just now(well probably, if it works out). In lieu of a super the residents of my building ended up stepping up when things started falling apart.
We have a construction worker who skillfully uses a small bulldozer to plow the parking lot, a dude who knows how to do electrician work fixing various problems, a little old lady upstairs who feeds us all nice things randomly and I plunge everyone's toilets when they clog for no reason cause of the s@#*ting plumbing. What's weird is how it came about, in that as far as I am aware there was never a conversation about doing these things.
People just stepped up and helped each other out. It's strange how once one person starts helping you and your neighbors the positiveness builds naturally. For myself I hate plunging toilets but I'm good at it and my neighbors helped me out in so many ways so many times it just seemed like the thing to do.
I'm not sure it's a situation you can create on purpose but when it happens it feels great getting sucked up into other people's kindness and helpfulness.
Really gives me hope for humanity.
