    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.

    I had to rep that, too funny. I also must move it, as it's humor!

    It's political humor. But thanks anyway.

    That is classic, but I have to fault der piggy because I'd said let me see some ID buddy! Then he'd know how was shitting who.

    All I can say is when I'm able to retire from full time work I hope I can keep a part time job I like for as long as I'm healthy and still willing to put up with being on the clock:thup:
