Occupying Time When Retired

Another brilliant e-mail received this morning:

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day, Bev, my wife, and I went into town and visited a shop.

When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

We went up to him and I said, 'Come on, man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?' He ignored us and continued writing the ticket.

I called him an “a--hole” . He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tyres.

So Bev called him a “s--t head”. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield 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.


  1. I'll second that. Brilliant.

  2. hahahaha - that's a good one John :D

  3. Don't be giving me any ideas, now! ;)

    It is funny when people ask me what I'm doing now that I'm retired...I just say I'm a human being now instead of a human doing. :)

  4. Sounds like therapy to me! I might try it!

  5. It tickled my sense of humour Keith.
