    How To Call The Police When You're Old And Dont Move Fast Anymore.

    **** George Phillips of 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 the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?" and he
    said "no". Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should
    simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.

    **** George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police
    again.

    **** "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people
    in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now cause I've just
    shot them all." Then he hung up.

    **** Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, 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 that you'd
    shot them!"

    *** George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"
    Courage is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway.

    I love this!!!

    The trouble is that the element that makes it funny is the reality in it.

    I'm glad they didn't charge the man with something, many probably would have.

    You realize that in a real situation, "george"would have been charged with filing a false police report? how sad......

    i've seen this story in various forms on the net for a while and it makes a good point....

    If he took a camera and snapped a pic or two (minus the flash of course) it wouldn't technically be lying.

    And I'm laughing because I have a new tactic to use when such things happen and I get the brush-off. Gotta love it.
