HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD


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 inside 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 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 them.'
Then 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 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.'


Don't mess with old people.

Just as a follow-up to your mock presidential "election" a few weeks back...

(it's not my intention to make you feel even less popular. I think people are reading - just not voting)

Anyway, I actually voted for each democratic candidate twice, but would now like to rescind my votes for Hillary. Is that possible, or is this like the Florida chad debacle?

Did I say, "...even less popular"?

That didn't come out right.

God I'm retarded.

I really shouldn't be allowed to vote.

...or get on the internet.

...or overuse the word "anyway".

After watching the Sunday morning political commentary, I've decided to revoke all of my votes, and write my own name in on the ballot.

Can I count on your support?

Maureen said...

Heck yes!

But I will probably need to vote several times...you being late entering the race and all.
