Got this in an e-mail.

The Parking Ticket

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

Well, for example, the other day, Marilyn, my wife, and I went downtown and visited a shop.  When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, 'Come on, man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?'

He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an asshole . He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires. So Marilyn called him a s**t head.  He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home.

We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age.

omg, u are hysterical.. had no idea you are retired!.. all this time I thought you were retired.. and I have to agree w/alexia- though I am surprised he didn't try giving you a ticket... somehow 'they' always seem to find a loophole in giving tickets.
