HOW TO CALL THE POLICE
George Phillips of Meridian , Mississippi , 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 his shed stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked, 'Is an intruder actually in your house?' 'No,' he answered. 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 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 Phillips' residence and caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the policemen said to George, 'I thought you said you'd shot them!' George replied, 'I thought you said there was nobody available!'
