How To Call The Police
George Phillips of Williston, North Dakota, 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
"Hello. I just called you a few seconds ago because there
were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them
now cause I've just shot them all." Then he hung up.
Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit,
and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips residence. Of course,
the police 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!"
