Parking Tickets!
Sent in by Jack Hise

The other day I went downtown to go to the newsstand, for the Wall Street Journal so I could track my investments. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires.

So I called him a 'dough nut eating Gestapo.' He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket.

This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, I didn't care...I came downtown on the bus. The car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said 'Hillary in '08.'

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health.
