So. Who Is Being Deceptive Now?

A friend of mine passed this story along. He said it was based on a true story. It made me chuckle.

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.

The man opened the back door to go turn off the light, but saw that there were two guys in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked ‘Is someone in your house?’ and he said ‘no.’  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 stealing things from my shed. Well, you don’t have to worry about them now, because I just shot them.’ Then 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 man’s residence and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the policemen said to the man, “I thought you said that you’d shot them.”

The man said, “I thought you said that there was nobody available.”
