I am a Georgetown area native, with family roots that extend to the founding gentres. We used to enjoy a quaint small town with all the familiarities usually afforded. Not any longer. Although I have lived in Austin for a few years, I returned to help out family. I can't wait to leave. It's an outright shame to feel this way about own's home.
Why these feelings? They are largely due to the unfoundedly pretentious, cheap, dried-up old pieces of shit that collectively make up Sun City. Your being here is, in part, the fault of the money-hungry developers and claim-to-fame politicians of the time. Make no bones about it, almost every Georgetown native regrets Sun City's existence. Yes, we have more amenities now, but only at the expense of the town's charm.... we also have 10,000 cheap old farts crowding the streets with their crawling land-yachts, "snow bird" sentiments, and crappy Northern(and now often Californian) attitudes.
Originally, it was thought that you would be good for business. What business? The original developers and contractors maybe. Sun City absolutely ruined the beauty and serenity of the Western Williamson County in which I was raised. In addition, you want everything for nothing. What do I mean, you might ask? You can't even keep a decent restaurant in business in your own neighborhood. Why? Because you want fine dining and food on a McDonald's budget. The rest of us can't even have a nice evening out because the servers are too busy figuring your discounts and accomodating all of your separate checks and substitutions. And for what? You tip the poor souls like we're still in the 1950s. With tip-outs to underlings, you often cost them money. If your budget only allows for McDonald's, then please, stick to your budget.
Can't you be content with having run your own states into the ground? Noone outside of your own brethren wants you here. We ought to pass an ordinance requiring permits for you to even leave YOUR neighborhood- a leash-law of sorts.

The sad thing is that none of these so called "greatest generation" ancients will ever read your post.

Well,sadly there will always be people like you around. I am just very thankful that there are so few of you. Do you ever have a good day or a smile for anyone?

Well, thankfully, there are very few people around with your sad attitude. Do you ever have a good day and a smile for anyone? I feel sorry for you and anyone who has to put up with you on a daily basis.
