Well, for example, the other day, my wife and I went into town to do some business and when we’d we visited a coffee shop for a bit of refreshment.
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 arsehole. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tyres.
So the missus called him a shit head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first and started on a third.
Then he started writing more tickets every time we had a go at him.
This went on for about 10 minutes. The more we abused him, the more steamed up he got and the more tickets he wrote!
Just then our bus arrived so we got on it and went home.
We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired. We reckon it’s important at our age.Follow @macgibbons
