Are you retired? Here's something to keep you out of mischief

What do retired people do all day? Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

Well for example, the other day I went into town and went into a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes, 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 senior citizen a f***** break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a Nazi turd.

He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.

So I called him a shithead.

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 into town by bus.

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.

It's important at my age..........

I hope the poor bastard who returned to his car to find several tickets had his day in court. The parking occifer may have been a bit embarrassed. Mehaul

Yeh ,but 3 prior attempts at other posts didn't mate . (operater problem I expect).

One of those was a rather long comment on your "Don't take them with you post".

I know a little about the subject ,being a liver transplant recipient myself . For what it's worth I had some advice for you to pass on to your friend who needs a donor organ.

I don't have a lot of time at the moment, to fully elaborate. I'll have to work on that again. But in summary tell your friend to never give up. Stay positive and focused. Really positive and focused !! Never say if, always say when. And mean it. It helps to get through the hard times he will have.

It's no picnic. But I'm still here when the experts and most of the family had almost written me off.
Sure beats the alternative.

I had to shut down the business, and cookie and I had to sell our beautiful property and move, just before the miracle happened and my donor organ turned up. The family helped us shift, and some of the sods who had written me off where merrily dividing up and helping themselves to a lot of my stuff. Workshop gear, Tools, Toys, Fishing gear, blokes will know what I mean.

Anyhoo, needless to say those ones are of my xmas card list. The rest of the family where fantastic. And life is good.

As a long time lurker, at Tims old sites and a full time RWDB minion I have admired your wit, your wisdom, and productivity, (what, 11,000+) So good job to pull on this project. I can't always pop in to say hello. But will appreciate whatever you throw at the page.

Regards Bill

Umm, belatedly on topic. Now that I'm retired, I have got to try some stunts like that. Help to keep the mind active and all that. I'll have to keep my physio up and my running shoes on I suspect.
