A story... at someone else's expense.

From: David Lee Roberts

Dear Click & Clack,

A friend of mine sent me the following recently, and I immediately thought this would be someone you could identify with:

Being Retired

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

So I called him a piece of horse *)$#. 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 moreI abused him, the more ticket she wrote.

I didn't give a darn.

My car was parked around the corner.

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

It's important at my age.
