I feel your pain, but I'm not sure if I want 85 year olds driving 60 mph either. I think this is a no win situation unless you get them off the road.

When I retire I’m moving north. My entertainment will be driving at rush hours 23 MPH in the fast lane with a blinker on!

Ain't it the TRUTH! Unfortunately the ones who go 40 in the left lane are probably the same ones who don't spend a dime more than absolutely necessary. The older snow birds driving fast cars and don't get in the way are very likely the free spenders contributing to the South Florida economy.

Ah watched a van with Illinois plates stop at the sign, look both ways, turn on the signal, look again, and PULL RIGHT OUT in front of 2 lanes of traffic. I mean you couldn't have called that anything but a WTF moment. Cars fish-tailing, horns and fingers flying. Fly north snowbirdies!

i tend to focus on the middle aged and or mature women of Floridian season...

Me, I cant wait to get back to poke-poke-villa mode,this rocket speed west coast, everyone high on cocaine or runners high going Mach 1 in San Diego Cali and all its hostile, competitiveness (like south beach crowd) won't be missed by me as I've been living-it since after the Irma devastation...

While in Coronado I totally took the famous new yrs "I'm gonna hit the gym" Seriously & been working on myself/my fitness in the "wetter-colder-harder" (naval amphibious base Coronado saying) mode & it has done me justice, lost 30Ibs, back into 34waist/sz medium shirts...

Yup, no booze hound/cigar stink keys disease fat slob mode while in Coronado SoCal, been swimming, bicycling & hiking & eating right getting it together so I can project all that Floridian humble pie "aww shucks" charismatic b.s. Marina chics & 50something wealthy widows in A1A skyrises eat up...

Yup, male version of a gold digger here...made that rule for myself when I divorced the exwifie 22yrs ago, "NEVER DATE WOMEN WHO MAKE/HAVE LESS THAN I"
Tried to teach my godson this, his mother hates me for it...

I think the politically correct term in 2018 is: Men who are in touch with their Feelings

If it weren't for the senile old snowbirds Florida would have to have an income tax. Then you'd really hear them crying

I've cooled off a bit now I was steaming mad in traffic today trying to get somewhere before they closed and some people just drive like there looking for someone to do a magic trick in front of them. Its like I have nothing to do so I'll just go clog up traffic in my Suburu. I mean really 25 mph in a 50 for no apparent reason other than to jam up traffic.
Oh we have our local idiots too don't me wrong its when you combine the 2 together. I am used to it. But its fun to bitch about. 1st world problems
