Low Income Retirement Community.. Mine's not good.
I live at a seniors building for people who are 60 or older! The building is very old almost 40 years now, still has that ugly peacock blue paint at the front entrance of the building, the region tries to keep up to date but very minimally!
The problem is, with this building & l'm sure there may be others out there, NO-ONE wants to get involved with other human beings who live at the same address~must sound crazy but that's what l think.
I'm not a stupid person, I retired after a 25 yr. nursing career & so l know a little bit about what's going on! Living in this kind of environment is toxic!
I'm serious, one hardly sees who lives right next door! The key holder lives next to me, 6 yrs. now & IF l do see her in passing, Hi is all she says!
32 tenants pay rent here, some don't understand English ~ feel they are to old to learn ~ but if they live to be 100, why do they feel they may not have enough time to learn?
There is parking for 12 cars in the lot out front, no visitor parking at all! l guess cause we are over 60, we don't bring our lovers' up to our place for COFFEE! No overnight parking for them.
The other 20 tenants buy a bus pass or take a taxi wherever! l live here because l have a limited income each month-not because l want to live here!
When l do come home from an outing, l feel like l am entering the TWILIGHT ZONE - A feeling of total isolation, like l don't exist any longer. YES, I have tried to make friends with some of these people, however, they are behind closed doors and don't want to be bothered.
Well maybe l will win the lottery and then l can move to a REAL retirement community where people are more friendly~~
