There is something about an elderly lady driving that is always good for a laugh. I’m not sure how true this story is, but I like to think it is and I am sure many of us know an elderly lady who we could imagine doing this. Well, at least in the USA.
An elderly Texan lady did her grocery shopping and when she returned to her car, found four males who were in the act of driving off in it.
She immediately dropped her shopping bags, drew her handgun and proceeded to scream at them at the top of her voice, “I have a gun and I know how to use it! Get out of the car you scumbags!”
The four men didn’t wait for a second invitation but got out of the car and ran for their lives.
The elderly lady, somewhat shaken by what had happened, proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and get into the driver’s seat.
She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition.
She tried and tried, to no avail and then it dawned on her why that was.
A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into her car and thought she had better make sure she wasn’t in trouble, so she drove to the nearest police station.
The police officer to whom she told the story, had tears streaming down his cheeks, listening to her tell her tale. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale white males were reporting a car jacking by a mad elderly woman described as white, less than 5 foot tall, with glasses, curly white hair and carrying a large handgun.
There is a happy ending to this story though. No charges were filed. Don’t you just love those senior moments? When’s our turn?
