George Phillips , an elderly man, from 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?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and
stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should
lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available."
George said, "Okay."
He hung up the phone and counted to 30.
Then he 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 just shot them." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter,
two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, 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!"
Don't mess with old people

lol that was funny. But I bet that would work if the dispatcher actually did pull that with you.
