Normally I subscribe to the "mind my own business" philosophy of life. That means I don't really pay attention to what my neighbors are doing unless they are super loud or doing something that just doesn't seem right.

So, when you see your neighbors doing something that just seems 'off' or you get that feeling in your stomach, or maybe the hair on your neck stands up and you don't really know why? If that is your 'sixth sense' or whatever you call it, should you tell someone about what you think your neighbor is up to? Or go back to minding your own business?
