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

Well for example, the other day I went into town and went into a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I went up to him and said, "Come on son, how about giving a senior citizen a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a Nazi.

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

So I called him a piece of dog sh1t.

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 give a sh1t. I came into town by bus.

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important at our age.

    Funny. Thank you. But what so we do to make our days interesting, when we are not just enjoying peace and quiet. We divide our work up in seven days and then add fun to each day, lead a balanced life. If we still need excitement, we visit our doctors there is always one that has been neglected or a new medical issue that needs attention. If we still need excitement. There is always some person or agency that needs a whipped into shape for neglecting or abusing us. LOL. We rarely need to resort to the last one.

    I love it Ladybabe!
    You grow on me! (hopefully above the waist) – way a blog should be!! Pick up a pen and write. I thought it spontanious, and refreshing. I could feel the irritation of the parking attendant. Nice one

    Great story and makes me think back when I was stopped by a young policeman for driving a car without a car license plate on back. I asked why I am being given a ticket? He said be quite as I write and then he handed the ticket to me. I told him I had just bought the car from a car dealer and have a paper on the windshield. He said why did you not tell me as he tour up the ticket? I later talked to the Police Chief, whom I knew, and he said training new officers can cause problems.

    That reminds me 40 yeas ago my girlfriend started to learn to drive. I was already driving so we decided to use my car to practice. I personally found the experience pretty distressing, anyway we came to an accident where a policeman was standing in the road holding his hand up to stop us. My girlfriend slowed down but carried on very slowly inching forward , the policeman by now was looking exasperated and leaning halfway over the bonnet still with his hand up for us to stop. Just at that point she ran over his foot. He took it well I must say and didn’t even give us a ticket. He just looked at me through the window and me back. I shrugged my shoulders going quite red. Later when we were driving up the high street we seemed to have nothing to say for some distance I said why did you do that. There was a screech of tires I lurched forward. several cars nearly had accidents behind us. I looked up to see the car door open and her walking away left me on my own. Anyway later on I married her and we had 3 lovely children. 40 years later we are still together I still haven’t a clue what’s she’s going to do next but its all good.
