Default I’m Over It!

Is anyone else getting tired of being labeled “entitled”? It seems like every time I look at any of the various social media posts, someone is accusing me/us of being entitled. I used to think it was outsiders but Villagers are doing it now, too. Just because someone is choosing to do something you don’t agree with doesn’t make them entitled! For the most part, we are caring, giving folks doing the best we can to make the most of our senior years. It’s a stressful time for all of us and we don’t all agree on every issue but let’s please stop the name calling — especially that particular one.

So......what would you like to call those who do not adhere to the guidelines? Think of another word other than "entitled". OK.....GO!!!

Many villagers do have an entitlement issue. Basically why most of the surrounding area despises us. In the current situation many feel the general rules do not apply to them. Stay home is only if they feel like it. They’re sneaking out like children at camp to go make out while counselors are sleeping.

Better deal with it. The Chicken Little's have been breeding like rabbits for a decade plus. This is what I do, 5 miles out in the gulf, by myself. No other human even in sight including the mainland. No, I'm not staying inside like animal in a zoo.

OK, I get that SOME people are foolishly putting themselves and others at risk but it’s the broad, sweeping generalizations that are getting to me. There are thousands of us here with faults and shortcomings but I would sure hate to be called an alcoholic just because SOME here overdo it. Just tone it down with the name calling and recognize that MANY of us are doing everything we can. It seems to me that the word “entitled” makes the rounds about everyday now (as in “those entitled Villagers”). We’re all under a lot of stress and name calling doesn’t help the situation.

Definitely. There are plenty on TOTV that post like they are experts, some even work in the health care field. The problem is that they don't know what they don't know

Well, I can think of many names for that type of behavior - not people - and I think “entitled” is a very, very soft word in the first place.
