If you go out to hunt a sheep that wandered in from a farm nearby and your buddy shoots you in the stomach by accident, you want to know he'll have the guts to finish you off if you ask him, rather than leaving you behind to bleed to death in horrible pain.
I...I think I'd rather know who is competent enough to not accidentally shoot me than if they have the cajones to finish the job.
Joking aside, where do I find neighbors cool enough to work out a zombie plan with? Did I say "joking aside"? I'm such a terrible liar.
I have some not so terrific things to say about my neighbors. Except for a single neighbor of mine, they all lack either common sense or a basic amount of consideration for the people around them; I probably would be better off in a group, but I wouldn't be very happy about it if they were it.
