This guy obviously didn’t think the police were doing the best that they could when he needed them the most. After all, he was a tax-paying citizen, was he not? I’m not sure that I would go this far if I found myself in this situation, but you’ve got to admit, it’s pretty funny…
An elderly man, from Georgia, 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. He 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.”
The old guy 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 residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the Policemen said to old guy, “I thought you said that you’d shot them!”
The wise old man said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”
Getting old is a privilege that we might not look forward to, but the elderly do get away with a lot more than the rest of us could ever dream of. I hope that when I get older, I can still keep my sense of humor. This is a classic joke, and I love it so very much! It always makes me smile when it comes across my desk!
