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

Well, for example, the! other day I went into town and went into a shop. I
was only in there for about 5 minutes, 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 senior citizen a break?" He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a *&$*! turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a s---head. 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 into town by bus. I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important at my age.

So little time, sew much to do...........

You people are too funny! My day is always brighter after stopping by this forum. Thanks soooooo much for taking time to make us laugh. Dr.Hyde er, um Magot how goes the innards? Hope all is well across the pond. Our nephew is loving Oxford. He's in law and has already accepted a postion with JP Morgan as an investment lawyer. We don't think he'll be moving back to Alberta Canada anytime soon! Take good care.

NanaBear who really got a lot done today for a change :up: :Canada:

Too funny! I'd wait around to see what happens when the "real" driver came out to his/her car.
