Looking forward to Retirement!

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. This is my favorite response...ever....

The other day I went into town to do some shopping. I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I said to him, "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 wrote 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 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, 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.

Have you seen the t shirts that say,"Old Guys Rule?" It's only partly true.
Old Guys with Smarts Rule!

Haven't you heard, Old men and guile beat young men and quickness everytime.
