Round like a shot... Going to bed the other night, I noticed people in my shed stealing things. I phoned the police but was told there was no one in the area to help. The policeman said they would send someone
over as soon as possible. I hung up.
A minute later I rang again.'
Hello, 'I said, 'I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. You don't
have to hurry now, because I've shot them.'
Within five minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area, plus helicopters and an armed response unit. They caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the officers said: 'I thought you said you'
To which I replied: 'I thought you said there was no one available.'
