Betty and Bob, an elderly couple walked out of a restaurant where they had enjoyed a healthy breakfast.
Right outside the restaurant door, they spied a Parking control officer in the midst of writing out a parking ticket.
The couple approached the officer.
Bob said with indignance, “Hey can’t you give a senior citizen a break?”
The officer ignored him and continued writing the citation.
Betty chimed in, “What a jerk!”
Bob added, “Don’t you have something better to do than pick on old people?”
The officer completed the ticket, placed it on the car windshield. Then, without saying a word, he proceeded to write another citation.
This time Bob and Betty were moved to shout out a string of insults almost in unison. They continued verbally berating the beleaguered parking officer for 15 minutes.
Each time the officer completed one citation he’d pulled out another, then another and silently placed each one on the car windshield.
Then a city bus pulled up to the stop right next to the heavily ticketed car.
Bob and Betty climbed aboard the bus and rode home.
Moral of the story:
When you retire, it is important to enjoy life and try to have fun every day.
