FRIDAY FUNNIES: SMART SENIOR

HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU’RE OLD
AND DON’T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.

George Phillips of 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?’
When he said no, they 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 them.’ 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!’

  1. That is hilarious! Did it really happen? We had a pretty serious break-in at our house where they cut the phone lines, so I couldn’t even call the police. I actually flagged down a passing car and they called but it took the deputies 40 minutes to get there. I was alone there, too, in a very isolated area with a broken window and bashed door.
    By the way, you made a really good point in your comment on my blog. Thanks.

  2. Hi Beth,

    It was posted on one of my groups just as a funny story. I just thought it was too funny not to share.

    How scary about your break-in! I grew up in the country, but now I like the thought that I have close neighbors who might hear me if I needed help.
