    Hi All,

    Just got this from my sister today. Thought you might enjoy this little story.



    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 the shed
    stealing things. He phoned the police, who asked
    'Is someone in your house,' and he said 'no.' Then
    they said that all patrols were busy, and that he
    should simply lock his door an d 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 that you'd shot them!' George said, 'I thought
    you said there was nobody available!'

    I've heard this story before, and it does sound crazy enough to be true!
    I'm going to copy it and send it to my dad, who would love it.
    Thanks for sending it.
