Retirement

Well folks, just when the muse is failing, TK rides in to the rescue!

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.
Well for example, the other day Harold and I went into town and went into a shop. We were only in there for about 5 minutes. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and said, "Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?" He ignored us and continued writing the ticket.
I called him a turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires. So Harold called him a sh#thead. 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 we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, we didn't care. We came into town by bus!
We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age.

  2. I agree with you about Rhyl. It has sadly gone completely down the pan since I last visited it as a fun-loving three year old! Full of chavs now.
