Civility


We currently live in the most densely populated county in the state of Florida. No, it isn't the Miami area, we live in the Tampa Bay metro area.

We have lots of sun, warm weather and beaches. We also have more people per square mile than any other area in Florida. It's the people I don't like.

When the human race lives in this sort of chaos, the simple act of civility toward your fellow man seems to disappear. We get on each other's nerves. I see road rage on a daily basis, if the clerk at the 7-11 takes too much time checking us out, we get irritated beyond the norm of civil behavior.

Those of us from the New York, New Jersey area are the worst. They have escaped from that hell of extreme population density to Florida. Upmost in their minds is to make Florida just like what they left, and complain about Florida at every chance. They are part of the problem.

Here is the funny part. Those sun lovers who moved here, and spoiled the area, are now moving north. No, not back to New York, but to the Carolinas, Tennessee, etc. The natives of that area call them "Half Backs". They have moved half way back to New York.

At least they left Florida.
