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

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.
