The Joy of Being Retired

>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.
