Laughter is important at any age, but when you get older and things on your body start retiring without your permission, humor becomes mandatory.
My Dad used to tell me jokes all the time and although he told me the same ones over and over, they were always funny the second and third time around. Anyway, I think you will get quite a chuckle from the next little story. Personally, I’m going to try to remember this one…it could be handy some day!
Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day, a friend 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 “ugly pig” . He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires.
My friend took her turn at provoking the cop and called him a “disgusting and smelly cow pie”. 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.
Wasn’t that hilarious? Can you imagine what the real owner of the car will think if the policeman really leaves all those tickets on the car?
