Default Quick Thinking!!!

George Phillips of Meridian, Mississippi 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. George 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?" and
he said no. Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that
he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when
available. George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and
phoned the police again.


"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were
people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now
cause I've just shot them all." Then he hung up.


Within five minutes three police car , an Armed Response unit,
and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips residence. Of course,
the police caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George: "I thought you said that
you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

Tiif, I am for REAL!

Was in the local rags and national press, the caller got taken to court for wasting police time - ironic innit!

Got chucked out of court as thejudge said the Police are here to serve the public, not serve the criminals
