The man behind me was hysterical and said he couldn't believe the behavior of many Villagers. Some are truly obnoxious.
I had an equally funny experience at Colony Publix. I was in the bakery and I walked up with a 6 pack of hamburger buns and ask the lady behind the counter to just give me 2 from the package and when I turned around I realized that there were 2 men waiting. I appologized and said, "Oh, these gentlemen were ahead of me." To which the bakery clerk said that they had already been waited on. I stepped back to wait for her to repackage my buns when one of the men waiting for his order said, "I know you aren't from Brooklyn!" I chuckled and said, "No I'm not." A few seconds lapsed and I asked him where he was from. He replied, "Brooklyn". So it must be true. There are rude people everywhere and they all visit The Villages

She left it all in the room, all over the bench, on the floor and did not put anything back on a hanger. Seriously...... There was nowhere for me to hang my stuff. Why do some old ladies in the Villages think they are better then everyone? Weren't you raised better then that? Just remember this, Carma is a BI#@H and it's going to get you one day. Find your RESPECT for others. You may think you know your future but....you may need a job one day. I hope it's soon.
If that person, maybe Villager, maybe not, left the clothes all over the bench and the floor, I would think you had plenty of room to hang your stuff because the hooks would have been empty.

The woman described by the OP might and might not have been a villages resident - but - for sure, she is simply a slob and thinks she is one of the entitled. I wonder if she is the same woman who cut me off at the cashier in Michaels...hmmmm...........
Boy, that can temporarily spoil your day. I need to ask you what is a "k" turn? Thanks.

Of course, not all of us are like that, and you hate to see everyone judged by the actions of a few, but the behavior is so prevalent, its hard to escape scrutiny.
Perhaps they should stay in Leesburg where they are safe.

It's the one in between a "J" turn and an "L" turn. Although they are not nearly as popular.

Can I get to read that Facebook thread without have a Facebook account? Can you give me a link to lurk there? I think I would enjoy it.

No it's a closed group. You have to ask to join.

Perhaps the senior tried on one item, hung it on a hanger in the dressing room and exited. Why assume everything in the dressing room was her making? The OP assumed the worst possible scenario of this woman. Sounds like the OP has a chip on their shoulder or just looks for problems.

Do we live in the same community? Yes, there are rude people but in my world there are far more kind, loving people than nasty ones. When I'm out and about I've witnessed people rushing to help people in distress and I feel blessed to live among these kind "old" people. Recently I witnessed a man trip and fall, by the time the paramedics came they had to ask people to step aside because so many people were tending to the man and his upset wife. The love and care given to lost and abandoned pets here in the Villages is phenomenal.
I'll stop here but acts of true kindness far exceed random nasty situations, at least in my world.

I agree. If nasty acts are what one is looking for, nasty acts are what one will see. I prefer to try and bring out the best in people when I can. It is said that you get back the same energy you put out.
