grumpy_thinkingGeorge Phillips, an elderly man from Walled Lake, Michigan, was headed to bed when his wife told him that he’d left the light on in the garden shed.

George opened the back door to go turn off the light and saw two people in the shed stealing stuff.

He phoned the police to report the break in.  The dispatcher asked, “Are they breaking into your house?”

“No, they’re still in my garden shed.”

“OK.  All patrols are busy.  Lock your doors and an officer will be along as soon as one is available.”

Disgusted, George hung up the phone, counted to 30, and called back.

“Hi.  I called a few minutes ago to report two people stealing things from my shed.  You can cancel the dispatch.”

Pluto-Happy“Why’s that?”

“I shot and killed them both.  I think my dogs are eating them.  In any event, problem solved.”

As George hung up the phone, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said, “I thought you said you’d shot them.”

George said, “I thought the dispatcher said there was nobody available.”

Aah . . . that’s better!
