This one is meant as a joke….but in this day and age is sadly all too believeable
The other evening on going to bed I saw two burglars raiding my garden shed.. I telphoned the Police who asked if they were trying to get into the house and I told them No. Ok said the police officer, lock the doors and we will call in the morning as we have no-one available right now. Then he put down the phone.
Five minutes later I telephoned the Police and said it’s OK I have shot the burglars so there is no rush. Within another three minutes two police cars, an ambulance and an armed response unit were on the scene and caught the burglars still robbing my shed.
I though you had shot them remarked one Police officer?
I though you said you had no-one available? was my reply
