Old George woke up to the sounds of glass breaking in his back yard.
Peering outside into the night he saw two men entering his tool shed.
He immediate called 9-1-1 and the police dispatcher said, “Sir, we don’t have anyone
available at the moment, but we’ll send someone as soon as we can.”
After a few minutes of watching the men loot his shed old George called back.
“Never mind my last call. I have shot them and I’ll bury them in the morning.”
In less than 2 minutes the first squad car arrived with lights and sirens blaring, followed
by another and then another. Suddenly a police helicopter flew overhead lighting up the area, then the SWAT team arrived and the police Captain.
Of course they immediately apprehended the two burglars. That’s when the police supervisor said curtly, “Hey old timer, I thought you said you shot them?’ George replied, “Yeah, and I thought you said, there was nobody available?”
