Morning chuckle for the ladies - I'm sure you have seen this before, but it just came again in my email and I chuckled all over again.
An elderly Florida lady was returning to her car with her groceries when she noticed 4 men preparing to leave with her car. She dropped her bags of groceries, pulled a gun from her purse, and screamed at the top of her lungs, " I have a gun and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!" The 4 men didn't wait for a second warning, but took off running.
She picked up her groceries, loaded them into the front seat, and tried putting the key in the ignition She tried again and again, but she was so shook up, she couldn't get the key in the ignition. Then she realized why - the same reason why there was a football, a frisbee and 2 six packs of beer on the back seat - her own car was parked a row away!
She got in her own car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. When she told the desk sargeant he couldn't stop laughing and pointed to the end of the counter where 4 white faced men were telling another police officer the story of being car jacked by a white haired elderly woman, curly hair, wearing glasses, and wielding a large gun. No charges were filed.
The moral of the story is, if you're going to have senior moment, make it a good one.
(Supposedly this appeared in one of the Fla papers and was a true account.)
