How to get quick police response

A man 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.  He 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 an intruder 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. The man said, “Okay,” hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

“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 man’s residence. Of course, the police caught the burglars red handed.

One of the policemen said to the man, “I thought you said that you’d shot them!”, to which he replied, “I thought you said there was nobody available!”

  1. That’s a good idea. Fuckin’ cops are never around when you need them. But they’re always there to hassle you for something trivial.

  2. Maybe I should start hanging out at the local doughnut shop. There’s bound to be a few there…

  3. I absolutely LOVE this!!!
    When I use to live in Orange County Ca. growing up, there use to be a bumper sticker that read, Need a cop , go to Winchell’s!
    (It was a donut house, I do not even know if they are around any more!)
    Thanks for the smile
