Yes, by all means, welcome the Snowbirds to the area. Sorry, but unless you are a business owner or Walmart or someplace where Snowbirds spend their money, you may feel as I do that the Snowbirds cause more grumbling that even the spring breakers do. I expect teens to be rude and obnoxious. I expect grownups to be above that. However, the vast majority of Snowbirds I have encountered here on the beach, more especially at Walmart and Publix have been anything but kind and considerate. There seems to be a sense of entitlement among many, like we should be grateful that they are here. As I said, unless you are a business owner that reaps the benefits of their dollars, I would just as soon they go home and stay. And no, I do not believe they help keep business open or prices down, as some have suggested. Shopping as though they are the only ones in the store, won’t move out of the way even with a polite excuse me; park even in spaces not designated as parking spots; stopping in crosswalks to let someone out of their car or worse, sitting and waiting for their passenger to come out (not even inclement weather) and no police around, typical, to enforce the laws that say no parking, unless I tried it. Cutting in front of a line, pretending not to notice the multiple shoppers waiting in line, assuming that because they only have a few things or because they are older and need to go sit down, they should go ahead. They drive horridly. They will walk out into a crosswalk area without even looking (hey, sometimes a car is halfway through and then one of them just steps out; who can stop on a dime?) but when I am waiting to cross, they just keep going, not heeding the signs that say stop, let alone slow down. They drive like crazed deer everywhere. I have no use for these people. Go home and stay there. However, many will not agree with me, but I don’t care. This is how I feel.

I agree. They also take all the condiments off the table at restaurants and are horrible tippers . . . . .if they even leave a tip. On a good note they do however help our economy. They rent condos for a few months and keep them neat and clean. . .unlike spring breakers.

Maureen, if you are lucky enough to reach old age some day, I wonder if you will still feel the same way about older, distracted people. I wonder if you will retain your memory of feeling this way. Even more, I wonder if between now and then will life teach you compassion?
