The Parking Ticket

[Found in the comments over at WizBang (and edited to make it local) ...]

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

Back when I was looking for a job I popped into a store. I was only in there for about five minutes.

When I came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

I went up to him and said, "Come on, buddy, how about giving an unemployed bloke a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a name.

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 "Vote for the Greens" bumper sticker on it.

Good one. I've heard a similar with a 'Vote for Nader' in the States (Nader is essentially our 'Greens')
