How old folks call the Police...




(This isn't a true story, but it ought to be.)

George Phillips, an elderly man, from Walled Lake, Michigan, 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."

The police dispatcher said "All patrol cars 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. 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. The dogs are eating them right now."

Within five minutes, six police cars, a SWAT Team, a helicopter with a searchlight, two fire trucks, a paramedic and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence They 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!"

2. Shovel
3. Shut-up

I have accually done something similer.
Called police. they would "send" someone out as soon as they were availible. I said" that's ok you don't need to , I'll take care of it myself. they really were there in minutes. Two potrol cars. oh yeah , the dispatcher called in the mean time, now don't do anything , officers are on the way. I said"don't bother" and then CLICK I hung up.

True story.
