    Talking Retired

    Working people frequently ask retired people what theydo to make their days interesting.Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.I said to him, '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 wrote 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 wrote 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, 'Obama in '08.'
    I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health

    You da man. Maybe that guy will be paying so much in tickets, that he won't be able to make any political contributions.

    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    What would have really been funny is if after about a dozen tickets you told him it's not your car.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.
