Rapid response

A man awoke one evening to discover prowlers in his storage shed. He immediately called 911 and gave his address to report the prowlers and possible burglary that was in progress.

The 911 operator at the other end asked, “Are they in your house?”

He said they were not, only in his storage shed in back of the house. The operator said there were no police available at that time. He thanked the operator, hung up the phone, and counted to 30 and called again.

“I just called you about prowlers in my storage shed. Well you don’t have to worry, as I just shot them all dead!”

Within minutes there were 3 police cars, an ambulance, and fire engine at the scene. After capturing the prowlers red-handed, the policeman said to the man, “I thought you said you shot them all?!”

The man answered, “I thought they said there were no police available…”
