The Joy Of Being Retired

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days
interesting. Well, for example, the other day I went downtown and went
into a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out
there was a cop writing out a parking ticket, I went up to him and said,
"Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break"? He ignored me
and continued writing the ticket.

I called him nasty names. He glared at me and started writing another
ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a "Doughnut eating Fatso."

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.

Personally, I didn't care. I came downtown on the bus and 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.

@Drnaline,
If you really did this then you are an ASSHOLE.

Is this the type of thing that "Good People" do?

Being it was posted in a humor forum you can assume it was a joke. Kinda like when some one puts LOL or Sarcasm after a post. If it offends you maybe you shouldn't read humor. Either that or you have a thing for Hillary?

@Drnaline,
Nowhere did you state that it was a joke.
It sounded like you were telling a story.

I guess I should have noticed it was a "cut and paste" since there were no spelling mistakes and the grammar was good.

@Drnaline,
I don't have to say it is a joke. It's in the humor forum.

@Drnaline,
Why would I pay you?

If you take no pride in how you are seen then why should I care?
You come across as trailer-park trash.

If you are cool with that then so be it.

Since it offends you so much i thought you might want to.

I don't know why you care but you like making an issue of it. Does some one that doesn't care continually care enough to mention it?

Nice, should i tell you how you come across? A little arrogent yourself, who do you think you are, LOL.

You don't see me having a problem with it. But thanks for caring. Or not caring, what ever you wanna call it.

@Drnaline,
Here is why. I came across ConflictingViews and thought that it is an interesting site with some potential. Unfortunately there are not many active posters here. You seem to be quite active.

I feel like a real loser debating with someone that does not even know how to spell. Have I really sunk so low in life? Debating with you is like having an ugly girlfriend. Embarrassing to be seen with.

I probably will not be here much longer. If there is noone else here to chat with then what is the point.

It's OK, you'll get over it.

LOL, good one!
Yet you keep comenting?
You like big or just ugly girls?

I figured, your type does not last long here. It's usually the ones that can keep things in context that still come around. You know, common ground.

It's what you make of it. Maybe you should seek a site of more like minded folk. May i suggest Democratic Underground or MoveOn.org: Democracy in Action
You can probably get some more amo to use if you decide to return?
On a side note, i know i'm a wiseass. Problem for some is they cannot put certain stuff aside. It should be a free world but there are some things supposedly of openminds that do not agree with me for the most part. I think you may fall in that catagory. But if one is truly openminded they should not have a problem keeping my words and thoughts in context. I am but one. A veery opinionated one at that!
