Yesterday, I was at the downtown post office. Now I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a cop writing a parking ticket.
So I went up to him and said, "Hey Dude how about giving a guy a break?"
He simply ignored me and continued writing the ticket.
So, I went off the deep end and called him a pencil necked Nazi.  He then glared at me and started writing another ticket for having bald tires. 
So, I called him a sorry excuse for a human being.  He then finished the second ticket and put it on the car with the first ticket and then he started to write a third ticket!
This went on for about 25 minutes...the more I abused and hurled insults at him, the more tickets he wrote...
But hey, I didn't care.  My Vette was parked around the corner...
