An old email

Still funny:

The other day I went downtown to run a few errands.  I went into the local donut shop for a snack.  I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was this 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. His insensitivity annoyed me, so I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and then wrote out another ticket for having worn tires.  So I proceeded to call him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.'  He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first.  Then he wrote a third ticket when I called him a moron in blue.

This went on for about 20 minutes.  The more I talked back to him the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, I didn't really care.  I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had one of those bumper stickers that said, 'Obama in '08.'

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.  The doctor tells me that it's important to my health.
