Tale of a Retired Troublemaker

by Steve Ray on May 11, 2009

Policeman.jpgWorking people frequently ask us retired people what they do to make their days interesting. For example, the other day I went downtown and into a shop. I was only there for about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I said to him, “Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break?” 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 a “doughnut-eating Gestapo.” 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 had come downtown on the bus, and the car that I was standing next to (the one he was putting the tickets on) had two bumper stickers — “Obama for President” and “Keep Abortion Legal.”

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

he could have saved the money by those comments and given it to ‘Priestsforlife.com ‘ Fr Pavone could have used it for better , the last joke was on the payer , sorry , pray to end abortion , i’m a family practice catholic doctor and don’t give contraceptives or viagra to unmarried couples and trying to become a Priest someday , if God wills it , the greatest evil is abortion and Christians and orthodox jews and muslims who voted for Obama will pay for it in the after life when they face Jesus and see what they did , larry scalzo D.O.
