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 went down-town to go to the newsstand 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, how about giving a retired person a break"?

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. So, 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 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 "Hillary in '08". I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.

It's important to my health.
