I Have a
This is a true account
recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida.
An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon
returning to her car, found four males in the act of
leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags
and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at
the top of her lungs,
"I HAVE A GUN, AND I
KNOW HOW TO USE IT! GET OUT OF THE CAR!"
The four men didn't wait for a second threat. They got
out and ran like mad .
The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her
shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the
driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get
her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then
she realized why, .. it was for the same reason she had
wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12
packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later,
she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther
down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the
police station to report her mistake.
The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop
laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter,
where four pale men were reporting a carjacking by a
mad, elderly woman described as
white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white
hair, and carrying a large handgun.
No charges were filed.
Moral of the story?
If you're going to
have a Senior Moment, make it memorable.
