Working peoples often ask retire people what they do to make their days interessant.
Well, for example, the other day I go into town and went in a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I comed out there were a policeman writing out an parking ticket.
I went up to him and say. “Come on man, how about give a senior citizen a break?”
He ignored me and continued to writing the ticket.
I called him a nitwit and he wrote another ticket for having worn tyres.
I called him a mean, uncaring pig but he finishing the second ticket, put it in the windscreen, and started write a third ticket.
