HOW to Call the Police If You're Old

George Phillips  age 82 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?' He said  'No.' Then they said
'All  patrols were 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 them.' and 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 shot them!'
George said, 'I thought you said there was nobody available!'  (True  Story)

That was funny....and it would not surprise me in the least if he wasn't seriously reprimanded for something like "false informing"...<br />
I commend George for being very resourceful
