HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANYMORE.

      George Phillips of Gold Coast, Australia 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 stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry
about them now because I've just shot them.' Then he hung up.

       Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed   Response Unit,
and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence and 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!'
