I see people not giving a s #^& about the guidelines trying to keep us all safe. Sure golf courses are open but I'm seeing two to a cart sitting on top of each other. I drove through Sumter Landing earlier this week and there were nearly 20 people under the canopies at the top of the boardwalk all close together another half dozen or so sitting within a foot or so of each other by the radio station.

Then I looked to the square were there were several groups congregating and having a good old time. Some were even using the plastic chairs set out by The Villages. You do know the virus lives on plastic and metal right?

Then as I drove up past Red Sauce and City Fire there was a group of four tailgating, tables, chairs a little wine and cheese party.

This is why the the entitled label is thrown around because many feel the rules do not apply to them. The longer people keep doing this and creating potential exposures to the virus the longer we will be in this situation.

I'm not thrilled about being at home all the time but I'm trying to do my part. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
Well said! Thank you for presenting your observations of noncompliant thoughtless behavior by "the entitled" that ultimately puts others at risk.

What is with these people who cannot or will not obey the rules to protect everyone?

I think it is because things like the block parties all week last week, the on going pickle ball games, the gathering of 15 golfers standing in front of Lopez, the tennis ladies gathering everyday, the way they just walk of the curb without looking and the attitude that they forget that they once worked for a living.....is where the “entitlement” comments come from. Don’t get me wrong there are wonderful giving people here some of the best people I have ever met......it like too much salt in the stew where you just can’t get passed the taste to eat the pot of stew.

wow

When I posted early in this thread, saying, “Dunning-Kruger Effect,” I thought the OP was talking about those people who refuse to stay put during these surreal times. Their behavior creeps me out.

Also creeping me out is the thinking of some who believe they are “entitled” to know the home addresses of Villagers who have the virus.

I wish I had never looked at this thread.

Just ignore it. the term is not accurate and is not worthy of concern. you know what they say about opinions.

RIGHT or WRONG:

Free thinkers, non lemmings, lacking in herd mentality, those who think for themselves … regardless of what anyone else thinks, free men, and (drum roll, please) people who have to venture out to earn a living/keep their businesses viable, in spite of edicts issued by politicians who occasionally might have the publics' interest in mind if it corresponds with "the agenda". Everyone else can just stay six feet away from them and "wash your hands"

However, what these folks do not acknowledge is the fact that being a male, white, heterosexual, Christian, tall, well educated has opened doors they knew nothing about.
Sorry but being a male, white, heterosexual, Christian, is more likely to get one persecuted these days than "open doors" that you speak of. And, to add salt to the wound, most of those doors have been "constructed" by the very ones who are now being "shut out" Not sure how "tall" opens any doors unless the door handle is near the top of the door

Totally agree. Yesterday I didn’t like the way my dishwasher cleaned the load. Got on my hands and knees with the light from my cellphone started looking around. The bottom of the dishwasher to say the least didn’t look so good SO I googled how to clean the model I have.
FOUND IT. step by step gotta say disgusting job (NEVER owned a dishwasher before) cleaning it and disinfecting it took longer than taking it apart and putting it together.
Most of these jobs can be competed with a little research, don’t even need any know how
Just saying, better than having outsiders in house right now

Many would think as I did, that the poster was wondering if the person who got sick lived on his street or the one over and wondered if he or his wife might have been exposed before we all knew what we know now. People are worried. I don't think the OP was wondering where the case was out of meanness, or pointing the person out like they were a "leper" but just wondering if they came to his woodworking shop or his wife's painting class. People are scared and this is just part of it. Wondering when it will happen to us or our near neighbors and friends. Boomer I know you value anonymity but many of us are not afraid to say who they are. If we got it, I would tell I had it and where I lived. Just out of information and kindness.

I love you Plato quote ... as long as we recall that most of what Plato wrote was the words of his mentor, Socrates. Even his "Republic" is a rendition of conversations Socrates was having with his students .. Glaucoma and someone else. Take another look at the Allegory of the Cave (Plato's Republic ... Socrates conversation).

IF you do not want to label people who are congregating without regard for spreading the virus .. the same people who forced the closure of the pools ... do you want to just assume they are "low IQ" people who believe the president? What's wrong with "entitled" or "inconsiderate" ... seems pretty polite to me.
