  • Round Like A Shot

    I got this by e-mail and thought it a bit ironic!!! It was in the form of a newspaper article.

    Round Like A Shot!

    Going to bed the other night, I noticed some people in my shed stealing things. I phoned the police but was told no one was in the area to help. They said they would send someone over as soon as possible.

    I hung up. A minute later I rang again. “Hello” I said, “I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. You don’t have to worry now, because I have shot them.”

    Within minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area, plus helicopters and an Armed Response Unit. They caught the burglars red-handed.

    One of the officers said “I thought you said you’d shot them.”

    To which I replied “I thought you said there was no one available.”

    Well, what do you think of that???? :lol:

    Tri, I saw that on the BBC's website and did mention a few times to exasperated fellow sufferers on here!!!

    Its amazing what they can do if they can be bothered!!!!

    I phoned our local police a couple of weeks ago, there were lads hanging round who we didnt know at 2.30 a.m. in the morning, they were outside a house and we knew the owners were on holiday.

    the police said ' we dont normally get trouble where you are....we'll see if anyone is available and send someone round...'

    so much for neighbourhood watch.

      Hi Tri

      I heard that one a while ago.

      It's a great urban legend isn't it?

      Badly sadly, I can believe that it will happen at some point.
