Don’t Mess With Old People!

From Julia Hawkes-Moore

HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU’RE OLD AND DON’T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.

Beware of old dudes with guns...

Phillip Hewitson, an elderly man, from Norwich UK, 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 them.” 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 Hewitson`s’
residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to Phillip, “I thought you said that you’d
shot them!”

Phillip said, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”

(True Story) I LOVE IT!

    Ha ha ha, I love the link the blogsite gives you to follow, word for word the same, but with different addresses and guns! It was from April 2009… I must have similar filed away somewhere, I’ll start sending them over, Steve.

    Hi Steve,
    Great story, I had a bit of a laugh, at least he managed to get the police to come.

    I think this is urban legend/rumour time. I posted a virtually identical story sent in by Brigitte a while back on my blog. The incident she described took place in South Africa. It’s a good story – but I think that’s all it is.
