A buyer from OnlineAuction.com
http://www.onlineauction.com/index.php has become a very dear friend to me through OLA. I'm sure many know what an asset she is to OLA....VHSQUEEN.....just sent me this really funny but true story of a fellow senior. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. She added some needed brevity to my day and I thank her!!!
HOW TO CALL THE POLICE
WHEN YOU'RE OLD

George Phillips , an elderly man, from 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?"

He said "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 doors Photobucket and an officer will be along when one is available."

George 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 them." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars,Photobucket a SWAT Team, a Helicopter Photobucket, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance Photobucket 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!"
