The following is a true story told to me by a friend. This one is for all the older folks.
WHEN YOU’RE OLD:
An older couple were in their home getting ready for bed. The wife told her husband that he had to go out and turn the light off in their garden shed, he had left it on. When he opened the back door to his house, he saw there were people in his shed stealing things. He shut and locked the door to the house and went to the telephone to call the police.
The police dispatcher said, “What is your problem sir.”
The old man said, “There are people in my garden shed in my back yard stealing things, you need to send the police to my house.”
The dispatcher said, “Sir, are they in your house?”
The old man replied, “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 house doors and an officer will be along when one is available.”
The old man 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; the 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 old man’s residence and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the Policemen said to the old man, “I thought you said that you had shot them!”
The old man said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”
Moral of the story: Don’t mess with old people. A few chuckles for all you seniors.
