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 the wife and I went into town to do a little shopping. We weren’t looking for anything particular, just browsing. We stopped into one little shop, had a quick look, and left. We were only there about 5 minutes maybe, when we came out there stood a cop writing out a parking ticket. We approached him and I said, “Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?”

He snickered, ignored us and continued writing out the ticket, sticking it under the wiper blades. So I told him exactly what I thought of him in no uncertain words.

He glared at me, flipped the page in his book and wrote out another ticket for the vehicle having worn tires. So Mary had a few choice words to say to him too.

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 or so. The more we mocked him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, we didn't really care about the whole thing, we came into town on the bus. We just like to try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age you know.

Points To Ponder

Something to think about
  • Why do you have to "put your two cents in".. but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"? Where's that extra penny going to?
  • Why do round pizzas come in square boxes?
  • How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage?
  • Why is it that people say they "slept like a baby" when babies wake up just about every two hours?
  • Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in crappy binoculars to look at things way down on the ground?
  • Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway.
  • Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?
