however word of caution around our cops here that may apply to your cops...
Friend smarted off to cop, cop called paddy wagon, took to jail, sitting down with clerk typing out paperwork, asked what is cop's charge. Drunk! Although a tea totaller, doesn't use alcohol/drugs, clerk said it is his word against yours. Locked up with homeless wine drunks for over 10 hours, then released. Not given a phone call or see a judge. No record...just considered a overnight street wine-o. His lawyer told him to forget about it and don't smart off real bad to cops.
...and those looking to retire in the near future.
Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.
Even if you're not retired yet, you have to appreciate this story. Gives me a new idea what to do with some of my time!
I went to Wal-Mart the other day. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out there was a city cop writing out a parking ticket. I went up to him and said, ''Oh, Come on, buddy, how about giving a senior a break?''
He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.
I called him a pig.
He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.
So I called him a worse name.
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 I abused him the more tickets he wrote.
I didn't care. My car was parked around the corner and this one had a ''Hillary in '08'' bumper sticker on it.
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important at our age.
