April 2, 2007Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their
days interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and
went into a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out
there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I went up to him and said,
"Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break"? He ignored me
and continued writing the ticket. I called him a "Nazi."
He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.
So I called him a "doughnut eating Gestapo."
He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the
first. Then he started writing a third ticket.
This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him, the more
tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus and the
car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said
"Hillary in '08."
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important
to my health.
Thanks to Rick the Deuce for this one.
