    Don't mess with old people

    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. Phillip 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."




    Phillip 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!

    Sounds about right for the police in this country, I know they get very busy but even one car turning up just to check would have been better than nothing at all.

    Didn't realise it was a true story - I got this in an email weeks ago as a joke - just goes to show you...... :-D

    Lol i hope this is true :thumbsup:

    have heard this same type of story a couple of years ago

    Sadly an urban legend according to Snopes.

    This is not a true story, its just a very old american joke.
