Tricky retiree

Another anti-Bush e-mail making the rounds:

Working people frequently ask us retired people what we do to make our days interesting. Here's one way.....

I went to the store the other day. 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, buddy, don't be a jerk. How about giving a senior a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a bad name. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a way worse name. 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. I didn't care. My car was parked around the corner and this one had a "Bush-Cheney" bumper sticker on it.

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