Oh Dear . . . .


Oh Dear Me Officer, 
perhaps I made a mistake, 
could you help me please ...?
An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, 
upon returning to her car, found four males
 in the act of leaving with her vehicle.

She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, 
proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, 
“I have a gun, and I know how to use it! 
Get out of the car!”. The four men didn't wait 
for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad.

She then proceeded to load her shopping bags 
into the back of the car and got into the driver’s 
seat. She was so shaken that she could 
not get her key into the ignition.

She tried and tried, and then she realized why. 
It was for the same reason she had wondered 
why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 
12-packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later,
she found her own car parked four or five 
spaces farther down.

She loaded her bags into the car and drove 
to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't 
stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the 
counter, where four pale men were reporting a car 
jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, 
less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, 
and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

The moral of the story?

If you’re going to have a senior moment… make it memorable.

Thanks Hal

It pays to give seniors a WIDE berth.

I have those senior moments, but for some reason I forget what they were!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Brighid said...

Did her name perchance begin with a B.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Brighid, There's a good chance of that.
