Get Out of the Car – from Francis J. Kong in Business Matters
I read this in the Philippine Star a couple of weeks ago and it was so funny I just had to share it. 😀
This is supposed to be a true account recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida. Listen to this story:
An elderly Florida lady had finished her shopping. Upon returning to her car, she found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags, drew her handgun, and screamed at the top of her voice, “I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!”
The four men didn’t wait for a second prodding. 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 get into the driver’s seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, but to no avail. And then it dawned on her why – the same reason why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12-packs in the front seat.
A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn’t stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter where four pale men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, with glasses and curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun. No charges were filed.
Isn’t this just a priceless story? 😉
