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 voice, "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 invitation.

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 driver's seat.
She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She
tried
and tried, and then it dawned on her why. 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. 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 car jacking 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.

AH, SENIOR MOMENTS

New? Not at all - it's at least a decade old, say the good folks of Snopes. It might even date back as far as the 60s.

Interesting origins to the urban myth, though. You can read about it in detail if you click the link above, but basically, it began as a story intended to ridicule the stereotype that all black men (as they were described in the original depictions of the story) are car thieves. I think it's quite neat to think that the myth is, even if just on a very small level, both a part of history, and a tool that helped ease racial tensions in the States.
