Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day, Maud my wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a Traffic Warden writing out a ticket. We went up to him and I said, 'Come on, how about giving a senior citizen a break?' He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an "idiot" . He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tyres. So Maud called him a "big bully". He finished the second ticket and put it on the windscreen with the first. Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote. Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home. We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age.
Thanks to my brother Tony(retired!) for passing on this gem.
