Dear Abby: We have lived in a small apartment building for four years. The family next door has lived here a little longer. We get along well with our neighbors and respect each other’s things.However, I have a habit that I fear may be inappropriate, and I would like your opinion.Our neighbors subscribe to the local newspaper, which is delivered very early every morning, long before they get up. I’m an early riser and I always hear it arrive in the morning. As soon as it does, I reach over and "borrow" it.I read only my family’s horoscopes, the comics and, of course, your column. I never keep any part of their paper, and I always fold it carefully and place it on their porch before they wake up.Am I doing wrong by sneaking a peek from their daily newspaper? I hope to read your response in their paper.Sincerely, Sneak-a Peek Neighbor* What do you think? Is this writer doing anything wrong?
