Getting the most from retirement

A funny story, via Polizeros (no other attribution given as to whose story it is):
Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. So here's a story.

I went to the supermarket the other day. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out there was a city cop writing out a parking ticket.

I went up to him and said, "come on, buddy, how about giving a senior a break?" He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a worthless municipal employee. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for worn tires.

I called him a blue suited imbecile. 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. I didn't care. My car was parked around the corner and this one had a "Bush-Cheney" bumper sticker on it. I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important at our age.
