JOKE: Senior Moment

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. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the drivers 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 the same reason she 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. Moral of the story? If you're going to have a Senior Moment, Make it memorable.

My son read this story to me when it came out in his magazine. It is actually true.

I did that in a huge shopping mall up in Maryland once. I got out of the car when I parked it and was in a great hurry to meet someone. Never even noticed what floor of the parking garage I left it.

When it was time to go, I realized my mistake and wandered from floor to floor, looking for my car until a couple security guys started following me. They helped me find it. At first, I believe they thought I was "casing" the place.

I know it had to look bad. I saw three cars identical to mine until I walked up and actually looked inside them. I must have looked just like a thief.

I always park in roughly the same spot, saves me grief and I don't head out the wrong door of the store. My area was full up so I parked in a different section, I looked for "Archie" for almost 5 minutes before I realized I had left him somewhere else.
