I would never enter grocery store sweating profusely. I would of towel off, till I cooled down, then if it was emergency 🚨 entries the store. Maybe the were being polite not wanting sweat dripping on the items?

I am aware of several reasonably good looking athletic single men in their 50s and 60s who would verify this sort of thing happens to them quite regularly.

I believe you, Manaboutown. Hubby was dressed in his best “I don’t give a s*** what you think” outfit at Publix. Didn’t stop the cart pushing woman. I don’t know how common this predatory behavior is. Not used to going to red light districts anywhere.

As far as widowers being inundated with casseroles as compared to women subjugated to leering and catcalls.... casseroles vs catcalls now which would I prefer? Such a difficult decision.

Agree, that was very inconsiderate of him. If you are going to run and sweat like a pig carry a protein bar with you and eat after you get home and shower. Gross.

Truly sorry for your experience, but I couldn't resist!

Good movie. I lived in a development in Boynton Bch. across the street from where it was filmed.

Upon entering into the Publix, still perspiring profusely and still wearing my running gear (clothes), I was immediately accosted by two older Villages ladies who were also shopping at the Publix.

One lady approached me and offered to “bend-over” in front of me and help me select an item from the lower shelf. Yet another older female shopper noted that I had a stain on my running shorts and she offered to meet her back at her house in order that she may wash my running shorts.

My question; What’s up with some of the older single / married female residents of The Villages? Is it possible that there are so many female residents here that are just so lonely?
"Accost" seems the wrong word here. Maybe "greeted"?

Definition of accost: "approach and address (someone) boldly or aggressively"

The OP described his accosters as "two older Villages ladies"...so...I interpret his politely written statement as "I was hit on by two cougars".
