How Retired People Make Their Days Interesting

Working People Frequently Ask Retired People What They Do To Make Their Days Interesting - - -

I went to the store the other day.

I was only in there for about 5 minutes.

When I came out there was a city cop writing out a parking ticket.

I went up to him and said, "Come on, Buddy, How about giving a senior a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a name.

He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.

So I called him a worse name.

He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield next to 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.

I didn't care.

My car was parked around the corner and this one had a "Hillary in '08" bumper sticker on it.

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.

It's important at our age.

This is so funny! I'm still laughing!
You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you can't close your heart to the things you do not want to feel.

I must say I was a little apprehensive when I saw the title of the thread, but it was great fun. I am retired and you've put a bug in my ear. (NOT).Funny!

I love it! My husband took an early retirement. We lived in Florida for a half-dozen years, but couldn't stand it. Bought a trailer and went on the road for three years. Found our current community. I told hubby that a condition of getting me to live in a small town was that he could NOT have fun like that! I have to live here too!
