Snowbirds and Tourons

For those who do not know what Snowbirds are, I am NOT referring to a type of bird. No, I am reffering to those who come down from the cold, snowy north to sunny, warm south Florida (though they do go to central Florida too, but since I don't live there...) It's not the Snowbirds that usually bug me, it's the Tourons. You probably are wondering "What are Tourons?" My brother came up with the term and it's basically "Tourist Morons" Those who come down here, and act like everything is supposed to revolve around them. They cross in the middle of the road when the crosswalk is only twenty feet away, but NO, they can't walk that far, they'll just cross here, RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY CAR!!! So I have to worry about not hitting them, try to swerve and not hit the car next to me... And then, there are the driving Tourons. They're the ones driving 25 miles an hour in a 45 mile speed zone, because they want to slow down and take pictures. GRRRRR Usually use the term, even if the people concerned are not tourists, but the are sure acting it! Anyways, I think I'll stop the rant now.
