Senior Moment

This is supposedly a true log recorded in the Police log of Sarasota, Florida

An elderly old 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 my car!!"

The four men did'nt 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'nt 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 2-packs of beer in the front seat.

(Insert: This story made me laugh until I fell on the floor because I have done this. Um not with a gun and not with four men, however I did begin to drive off in a van that was not mine with a child in a car seat that was not mine...more later)
A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces further down.She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant to whom she she told the story could'nt stop laughing.He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a cat jacking by a mad,elderly lady described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair and carrying a large hand gun.
No charges were filed.
Moral of the story?
If you are going to have a senior moment...... make it memorable

(More on insert: True story, I was at school a few years ago dropping my oldest off and walking her to class, came back out to drive off in "MY" van and wondered why there was this terrified child in the back with eyes bugging out. I'm a little slow on the uptake and it wasn't until I noticed a van full of items that were not mine until I remember my mistake.)
