- #573100Absolutely nothing! In fact, everyday when I go downstairs in the morning to pick up my newspapers, I notice that my neighbour's eldest son is going through one of my English newspapers.

- #573114It depends on the neighborhood i.e. the area in which one lives. Generally, in a posh area, people never resort to such cheap practices as they buy their own newspaper. Sometimes, it happens that the neighbor goes out of station for a day or two and since the newspaper vendor is not always informed in such cases, the usual delivery continues. They throw the newspaper in the morning without knowing if the owner is available or not. In such cases, I personally find it very disturbing to see the newspaper lying on the ground as an orphan. It is better to pick such newspapers and keep it somewhere with or without reading that. I always inform my neighbor to take care of my newspaper in case I am out of the station.
Another scenario is that when any specific news or information is published in another daily which is subscribed by the neighbor. I such cases, it is better to borrow newspaper from them to refer the specific news/information instead to reading the same like a thief.
Let us encourage each other in sharing knowledge.
- #573124Normally now days such things are not happening, although I can not deny this is not happening at all. But I will not fight with my neighbor, if he/she just read my news paper before me. If there is any emergency so I might ask for him/her for the news paper if he/she has taken from my home. Or else there will nothing going to change in my news paper if I read after 20 minutes.
- #573190I think its wrong to read another person's newspaper without asking. It may not annoy at first but a quarrel starts after doing the same multiple times. I currently live in an apartment in which every family subscribed to their favorite newspapers. So, there is no chance of any such problem for me.
Let us continue learning.
