This is supposedly a true log in the Sarasota, Florida police department:
An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and upon returning to her car, she 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 lungs, “I have a gun and.I know how to use it! Get out of the car!”
The four young males didn’t wait for a second threat. 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 the drivers seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition.
She tried and tried, but then realized why. It was for the same reason that there was a football, a frisbee and two six packs of beer on the front seat.
A few minutes later she spotted her own car parked a few spaces down further.
She loaded her shopping bags into her car and drove to the police station to report her mistake.
The sergeant to which she told her story to couldn’t stop laughing.
He pointed to the other end of the counter at four pale, young men were reporting a carjacking by a mad, elderly woman, described as less than five feet tall, white curly hair, and carrying a large handgun…….No charges were filed.
Moral of the story? If you’re going to have a senior moment…better make it a good one!
