You know you've been in The Villages a while when...
 
...you've seen a cart in a roundabout and a car on a cart path (both of which I saw last week). I tried to stop the car as I met it on the car path over by Mallory CC, but it didn't stop. She did pull back onto Odell Circle via the CC entrance.

(Please reply with your experiences...)

Seen a dog successfully pee on Fumar's yard without becoming "fragrant meat" in a Chinese butchery. :icon_wink:

Saw an SUV stuck in a tunnel. They had to deflate the tires to get it out. Gotta love folks who really think their vehicle will fit wherever they want to go.

Then there was my friend who went the wrong on the round-about. The worst of it was she traveled the circle twice before she could figure out how to exit (she was supposed to be following me).

Reminds me of the story of a truck driver that got stuck under a low rail road bridge. When the police came along and said to the driver... "Ya stuck under there?" the driver responded by saying "No, I was delivering this bridge when I ran out of gas!" :1rotfl:

...have seen a truck as well as several cars backing out from the tunnel across CR466 to Southern Trace Shopping Center. A dump truck had fallen over going too fast around the Tall Trees roundabout. There have also been a number of vehicles stopping in the middle of the roundabout for no good reason. A good reason would be an accident in the roundabout. In that event, you would have to wait your turn to go around the vehicles involved in the accident. This also happened to me.

Cars and trucks going the wrog way in the roundabouts is a fortunately rare occurrence but one I have seen a few times a year here in TV. Pedestrians in the roundsbouts is also a even rarer occurrence but one I have also seen. This is not counting groundskeepers.

On a beautiful, sunny 65 degree day you have seen a walker wearing a ski jacket and hat and gloves. The ski poles were the bonus!

As 2newyorkers said, on days in the high 60's or even low 70's, you might see the "natives" in coats or sweatshirts when those who don't live here full time, will be in shorts and flipflops!

....when someone blocks your golf cart in a parking space with their cart. I just knew I shouldn't have pulled so far forward into that space!!! :a20: And the blocker wasn't using a rental - their cart had the look of belonging to someone who'd been in TV for a while. Plenty of other places really close by for them to have parked as well. Such is life!! :)

Given their apparent lack of intellect for realizing we'd be blocked in, he/she was probably rather mystified as to why their cart was parked parallel clear at the head of the parking space when they returned...............

You wake up in the morning and wonder what to do.

you know "hand and foot" has nothing to do with fingers and toes.

When you start eating dinner at 4PM because you are actually hungery, not just because that's the only time you can get a table at the country club. :icon_hungry:

When you see a persons name on TOTV, you kinda know what attitude they have.
