How It Works....

Francesca Beaupre',
of Meridian, Mississippi
was going up to bed when her son told her that she'd left the light on in the garden shed,
which she could see from the bedroom window.

Francesca opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

She phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"
She said "no", they're in my shed.

Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that she should simply lock her door and an officer would be along when available.

Francesca said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago
because there were people stealing things from my shed.

Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just shot them."

Then she hung up.

Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response Unit, and an ambulance showed up at the Beaupre' residence and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to Francesca,

"I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

To which she coyly replied,

"I thought you said there was nobody available!"

Whatever it takes,
my motto!

I will remember that the next time someone breaks into my car at work. Naw forget it. The Cleveland police are busy looking for scofflaws driving around with loud exhausts.
