One of neighbours went to the local corner shop the other day (we still have one), He was only in there for about five minutes and when he came out it was to confront a policeman writing out a parking ticket.
He went up to him and said, ”Come on mate how about giving a guy a break?” The upholder of the law ignored that and continued writing the ticket. Our man then questioned his parenthood. The copper glared and started writing another ticket for having bald tyres! With that more abuse followed. A third ticket was produced and put on the car. Then he started writing a fourth ticket!! This went on for about 20 minutes, the worse the language the more tickets he wrote.
Eventually the officer completely lost patience.
”Frankly I don”t care,” said our friend, ”My car is parked around the corner!”
