    Default Retirement Fun

    Working people frequently ask retired people what theydo to make their days interesting.

    So I asked a Retiree:

    Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and went into a shop. I was in there 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 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 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 & well being.

    OH! So YOU'RE the one getting one the loudspeaker in boxstore shouting, "Cleanup in the bait dept!".
    And going into the dressing room and calling out, "HEY! There's no toilet paper in here!".
    And I'm sure it's you that goes into PetSmart with a hidden bottle of yellow tinted water that you pour into little puddles everywhere when no one is looking!
