Because I can

Funny ain't so funny right now.

And so it goes.

Humbly waiting

At the risk of offending the delicate sensibilities of our visitors from the north:

The two seasons in Southwest Florida ARE NOT 'Waiting to Humbly Serve You' and 'Humbly Serving You'

While we do like your money, it'd be just fine with most of us if you left your damned entitled attitude in the north next year.

You ARE NOT entitled to be treated like royalty. You are NOT royalty.

You ARE NOT entitled to go to the front of any line, to butt into queues or to be waited on first. We are not here just to serve you. To cater to you. To kowtow you and worship you.

No, we're not gonna change the rules for you.

You expect us to be polite. How about being polite in return?

I know you're lost while driving most of the time. Could you manage to be not lost at something more than 20 mph? Or how about pulling over, looking at a map and then proceeding at the prevailing speed?

Because, face it, folks, no matter how much damned money you have or how much you spend down her, IT IS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU.

If you want to know the truth, the two seasons in Southwest Florida are: 'Enjoying our Lifestyle Without the Snowbirds Around' and 'Waiting for the Snowbirds to Leave.'

We are well into the latter. Can't wait.

Spend all you want folks, just don't think it makes you royalty. Unless you mean a royal pain in the ass.

And so it goes.
