On Being Retired

A friend sent this to me and I had to pass it on.

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 the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said ‘OBAMA in ’08.’

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