How To Call The Police

HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T 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!"
