Working 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.
