It's fun 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 "Pussy." He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So I asked him directions to the nearest doughnut shop. 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. The car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said "OBAMA 2008." I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.
