How to Call the Police When You're Old

and Don't Move Fast Anymore



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 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 and

killed them both. The dogs are eating them

right now." And 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!"
