I have no idea. Hopefully, she'd get wet. I find myself being "pool bitch" and lifeguard to a number of kids here.

I would definitely complain to the management of the subdivision(s). Time for a letter to everyone is able to use the pool with the rules and regs.

We used to have the rules posted, no one ever read them We're self-managing. I do plan to bring it up at the next Rec meeting.

We probably also need a sign like the other subs do, "No Lifeguard, Swim at Your Own Risk.". Pools here are considered an "attractive nuisance" and we could get sued if someone fell, or drowned.

Yes indeed! Nice lady, but so clueless. And this is not uncommon here. Dump your kids in the pool, turn your back, and expect them to sink or swim. Then we would get a hefty lawsuit if anyone got hurt.

How precious! And unfortunate that Himself and I don't live close to her - I'm always up at midnight, and usually at 4:00 AM. I suppose I could learn to be a squirrel sitter. After all, I'm plenty squirrely myself.

It says right in our lease that the public bulletin boards are for posting community events only. For personal postings there is a board in the Community Room for such postings. And it is loaded with such religious postings. I have no problem with them. So these are in violation of our lease. It is just that no one has the guts to do anything about the violators. I have been removing them. Technically, even the thank you notes from those that have lost a loved one are in violation, but considering all, let it be. Sometimes you have to close both eyes.
