The Parking Ticket
The other day I went downtown to run a few errands. I went into the local
coffee 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 '****.' 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 2012.'
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. The doctor tells
me that it's important for my health.
