Friday Funnie: Beware of Little Old Ladies

Friday Funnies will open a window to let in a little fresh laughter! Grieving is hard work so take a moment to laugh again. ferree

(This is supposedly a true account 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, drew her handgun, and proceeded 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 loaded 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 realized 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 further down.

She loaded her bags into her car and drove to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant 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 carjacking by a mad, elderly women described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

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


  1. Senior moment? I started to get in someone else car ( same color and style ) at the dealership. Since I am new at this car maintenance thing, I assumed that the car by the service desk was mine. NOPE... the next guy in line. They pull the cars outside when they finish them.
