"The Old People are Back"
We get a lot of Snowbirds in this area. People who are usually retired and move down here for the warmer winter climate. Some of these people are wonderful! They are sweet and kind and they do this weird thing with their face... I believe it's called "smiling". Then there is the other group. They are grumpy and ornery and the world is a rotten place so, they feel entitled. Entitled to your respect. No matter how they treat you. Entitled to cut in lines. Entitled to yell at anyone who gets in their way. Entitled to complain when they are seated next to your family at a restaurant because you have CHILDREN (which appears to be a SIN to a lot of these people). Worst of all, they feel entitled to drive wherever and however they like. I've only been flipped off a handful of times in my life, but several of them have been here in California by little old men careening down the road at crazy speeds. I've decided that they need to put up billboards and big flashing signs that say something to the effect of "The old people are back. Please act and drive accordingly."
Now, I have to go out shopping and I fear for my life. If you don't hear from me again, then you can probably safely assume that a little old lady beat me to death with her purse because I had my 4 year old in Jo-Ann Fabric or we were side swiped by an old man on his way to play a round of golf. If I live to post another day, then you'll know that all Snowbirds we came in contact with were of the sweeter persuasion. Cross your fingers for me!
