    Default What Do Retired People Do?

    Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their
    days interesting.

    Well, for example, the other day I was 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 anotherticket 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 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.

    LOVED IT!
    I'm retired, (sort of) so I'll look for my opportunity.

    Talking

    I will have to give that one a try when I retire in 23 more days. However, I refuse to try burning my genitals as something to occupy my time.
