When you pretty well know that any of these things can get a fight started;

Dogs and where they poop.

How people drive and whether they should be ticketed.

Who speaks politically at the squares.

Moffitt

Kids living with grandparents.

How younger retired people view older retired people and how older retired people view younger retired people.

The quality or lack of, of the local Newspaper.

How safe or unsafe The Villages are.

Owning and carrying a gun.

Heated indoor pool.

FEEL FREE TO ADD YOUR OWN.

Disputes between walkers, bicyclists and golf carts ..... Walkers on the road when there is a sidewalk available. Walkers on the multi-modal paths walking three abreast and going 5 MPH with a stream of golf carts behind them.

On the other hand ... Driving around The Bubble in a golf cart feeling a surge of pure joy at the cleanliness and beauty.

When you see someone in a golf cart who looks lost. This time you're the one who stops immediately and asks where they are going. You know the way! You turn around to lead the way and get them headed in the right direction!

That's the day you know you're a true Villager!

Once on our Lifestyle Preview two years ago someone stopped to help us find our way. I have now helped several others find their way. Kindness is contagious. What a great place this is!

Default You know you are in the Villages

When you share a big sweaty hug with your foursome during Ladies Day when you sink a 25 ft. putt for double bogey....

You pretend to be talking on your cell phone while sitting in your golf cart so that people know you don't need help.

When every day you check the weather from the "old home town" to see how much snow they got and how cold it is. Then giggle so loud the neighbors come over to see what the fuss is all about.

In reverse we do that here.....see how much better it is in the Villages vs this lousy snowy crap we got up north. And watch folks dancing every night on the LSL or SS webcams knowing we are soon to be there.

You know you have been in the Villages a long time when you have to replace the tires on your golf cart.

You know you're a Villager when you no longer think anything about a truck riding along side you while you are in a golf cart.

You know you have been in the villages awhile when it's 50 degrees out and you cancel your golf and wait for a warmer day.
