How can so much truth come in such a small package?
A Little Fun Is A Requirement In Life
The other day I went our little shopping center for some coffee at
Starbucks with Del.
We were only in there for about 15 minutes but when we came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.
Ok, so the car was parked in the red zone.
I went up to him and with a little attitude I said, 'Come on, 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 started writing another ticket for having worn tires.
So I called him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.'
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 had 'attitude' and abused him, the more tickets he wrote. I guess the pen is mightier than my mouth.
Personally, I didn't care...as it wasn't OUR car he was ticketing. I don't know WHO owned it.
But the car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said 'Obama in '08.'
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.
