Working people frequently ask retired people what we do to make our days interesting.

Well, for example, the other day I went downtown to go to the News Stand for the Wall Street Journal so I could track my investments.

I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I said to him, Come on, man, don't you have anything better to do than write a retired person a ticket?

Why aren't you out chasing crooks or child molesters...that's out of your league, obviously!!!

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires.

So I called him 'Barney Fife'. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first.

Then he wrote 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 tickets on had a bumper sticker that said 'McCain' in 08.

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.
