Old Folk ... I Are One Too


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

 
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 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, my 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 you'd shot them!"
 

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

 (True Story) I LOVE IT!
 Don't mess with old people.
