My friends you can bet your life and last dollar on the fact that if you live in a planned community in the United States today you have a homeowners association (HOA) board of directors and a staff GM to deal with who have completely lost their way in life.
By that I mean once they achieved their superior human being HOA board and GM status in life they became just like Nazi style dictators and thugs. No longer were they kind and decent neighbors and friends. Now they became arrogant enemies of yours who were completely drunk with their own new found egomaniacal power of ruling over their new low life HOA subjects. You talk about arrogance of power. These HOA folks invented the phrase.
I don't know what it is about common ordinary folk who suddenly ascend into to the hallowed halls of unbridled power. Somehow they lose their sense of common courtesy and common moral decency. When you walk into a room with these people they try and stare you down as if you were one of the lowest of creatures on earth and they were the high supreme beings in life. It's truly a sickening sight to behold.
And speaking of sickening sights to behold just go to one of your HOA board meetings one time. You will be amazed at how forlorn and unhappy these board members are as they never crack a smile, never say a kind word and they never show any respect or common courtesy toward you whatsoever. No it’s really a sad day in their lives. Nothing to do but beat up on former friends and neighbors for their own twisted sense of self created importance and power.
I must add this. Somewhere out there I know there is a wonderful person who has become an HOA board member. The problem is this poor person when he or she became a board member they had to lay down with dogs so they quickly got fleas. When this happened they too lost their way in life.
