Rayvt: "My mom was in a DelWebb 55+ community for several years. It was okay, but we really learned the meaning of "condo commando"."

Ray, will you elaborate?


The one case that really struck me is this:

Mom had one of those fake topiary plants with the globes, like http://st.houzz.com/simgs/90517f5f01364aa4_3-2550/modern-pla... on her front porch.

One February she got an official notice bringing to her attention that holiday decorations are required to be removed within 2 weeks after the holiday, and that Christmas was 6 weeks ago.

We couldn't figure out what the complaint was about, and then we realised that it must have been about that NON-HOLIDAY topiary plant.

Cr*p like that happened all the time. Old folks with nothing to do drove around on their golf carts looking for something to tattle about.
