This could be my father-in-law

From a list I'm on:

    Now that I'm retired, working people, frequently ask what I do to make my days interesting.

    Well, for example, the other day I went downtown to go to the News Stand 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, don't you have anything better to do than write a retired person a ticket? Why aren't you out chasing crooks or child molesters...that's out of your league, obviously!!!

    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 'Barney Fife'.

    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 senior's bus. The car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said 'Obama in '08.'

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