ok, so i work in a facet of the housing industry. today i just came across the name of a senior citizens community called "labor retreat". WTF were they thinking when they named this place? would you want to send your grandma to a retirement community with 'labor' in the title? HELL NO! what are they making them do? is it like a sweat shop with all the blue hairs crocheting and quilting until their fingers bleed? the orderlies refusing to give them their Metamucil or prunes if they aren't productive enough? fuck, i am in my 20's and i don't want to 'retreat' ANYWHERE with labor in the name, i can only imagine when the arthritis sets in and i have a plastic hip.... usually, when i think retreat, i am thinking relaxing, maybe some pool side activities with a cocktail involved, but when i hear labor that idea goes out the window as i start to picture geezers tilling away at a tomato garden to earn just a bit of free time to get some shuffleboard action in. it sounds vaguely like a concentration camp. why don't they just name it "Auschwitz Retirement Community"? to me, 'Labor Retreat' is really an oxymoron and not an attractive concept. when i get old, my spawn better not send me to Labor Retreat, but instead to Rum River Estates (yes, a real senior community). now that sounds like a place i could grow old gracefully at. just think of how crazy the bingo games could get?
