Get Out of the Car! April 7, 2009

Note: thanks to Women of Caliber for sharing this awesome post!

(This is supposedly a true account recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida)

An elderly Florida lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle.

She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her lungs, “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 threat. 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 got into the driver’s seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition.

She tried and tried, and then she realised why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12-packs of beer 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 seargent 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, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

The moral of the story? If you’re going to have a senior moment… make it memorable.

    I lived in Florida and I can tell you those guys were in the wrong part of Sarasota. I’ve been there and more than once I was victim to a drive-by and had knick-knacks chucked into my car leaving the interior smelling stale and old. Once, at a street corner, I was approached by a crazy-eyed old lady desperately begging me for empty Cool Whip containers! And, rarely a week goes by when the local paper doesn’t report about some unsuspecting person being pulled down a segment of sidewalk by the ear by some ticked-off grandma. Ouch! My ear tingles a bit just thinking about it.

    Stay out of S-Town!
