What do retired people do to pass the time?

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

Well, for example, the other day my mum and dad went into town and went into a shop.

They were only in there for about 5 minutes. When they came out, there was a policeman writing out a parking ticket.

They went up to him and said, 'Come on, how about giving a couple of senior citizens a break?'

He ignored them and continued to write the ticket. My dad called him a Nazi.

He glared at him and started writing another ticket for having worn tyres.

So my mum called him a job's worth. 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 they abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Of course they didn't care. They'd gone into town by bus.

They try to have a little fun each day now that they're retired.

It's important at their age.
