Just wondering if you have a flower at the back of the roof of your car.

That is what those fake flowers are for. Right?

I realize now that many times when people do not quote who they are responding to, they are actually responding to the original poster in the original post. I think that is the case with this post that you responded to.

We had a single family home in South Florida for several years, in between Miami and Ft. Lauderdale. The homes were built with gang mailboxes and the gang mail boxes are still in use today. That area was much more populated than The Villages. I don't think it has anything to do with population whether gang mailboxes are assigned to a community.

My car doesn’t look like every other one on the lot and I do not have to identify it by a number that runs up and down instead of left to right which is challenging enough.

You think? Is that a guess?

Some might like it because it is cute or meaningful to them. It’s not on yours, so get your mail and move on. Don’t get your panties in a bunch. Some people love bumper stickers, some don’t, some antenna tie ones (scrunches or flowers), some not so much, go home read your mail and worry about real problems in life. Go visit a shelter, do help at a senior center, enjoy what little time you have left on this planet, and smell the roses. Live life to your fullest. The clock is ticking people......

If you have to bring them to postal station to show off villages need to get out more often.

Presumably.
Personally, I don't need a telltale to find my car, but my wife goes to any car of similar body shape and color. To her, it is just something that gets her from point A to point B, and "they all look alike".
