FRIDAY FUNNY - HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD

(True Story)

George Phillips, an elderly man from Meridian, Mississippi, was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked, "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No, but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said, "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."

George said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both and the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

DON'T MESS WITH OLD PEOPLE!

Dear Lady RidesAlot:

I have heard this story before, and while it is hysterically funny, it is also sadly true. And if the guy had shot the perpetrators, he's be getting the gas chamber with live coverage on CNN.

By the way, you won a free copy of my book. You were Twisted Roads' 12,000,000th commentor. Find my personal email on the blog and send me a note with an address.

I am so glad I hadn't taken a drink of beer before reading this. If I had, there would be foam squirting out of my nose right now. How funny!!!
