Your book seems to point out and emphasize the sleaziness of some people. these people would behave this way anywhere they live. I wish you would have spoken to the typical Village resident. They are enjoying life by participating in good healthful activities: golf, shuffleboard, pickeball, cards, mah jongg, etc. making good friends and doing lunch or dinner with them is a major part of life. It is truly a life that can only be compared to life on a vacation resort!
It is an active, vibrant and very wholesome lifestyle for MOST people!!!
A Village resident for one year!
Did your copy of the book not include the part about my low key neighbors, Sassy the clown, the hospice volunteer, Ellen and her friends who play cards ("hand and foot") together, the clean cut Boomer club members, the friendly folks at the wine club, or Sheldon's Stompers? If not, then I'd ask for your money back.
As for Mr. Midnight, I like how he challenged stereotypes of older people. I don't think he's sleazy.
I hope you enjoy your retirement and your time in The Villages. There are certainly many good people down there to share it with.
