We are told for our own safety, we should not fight back during a crime. But, not all people believe in that. In fact, many take it upon themselves to stop the crime before any help can even be summoned. Many are successful and many are not. Some even bring a smile to your face. This is one of them...
An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her car. She dropped her bags, and drew her handgun from her purse and proceeded 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, now somewhat shaken proceeded to load her shopping bags into the car. She got into the front seat but was shaking so much that she couldn't get the key into the ignition. She tried and tried and then realized why.
It was the same reason taht she sondered why there was a football, a frisbee and 2-12 packs of beer in the front seat.
A few minutes later she found her car parked 5 spaces down. She loaded her bags and drove to the police station to report what she had down. The Sargent whom she told the story to 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 lady described as white less than 5 feet tall, glasses, curly white hair and carrying a hand gun.
No Charges were filed.
MORAL...If you are going to have a senior moment...make it memorable.
