FRIDAY FUNNIES - Stick 'em up, boys!

Going out with a BANG?

I read this one in the local paper last week and thought it quite poignant (as well as being a good filler-inner to tide us over whilst my latest blog post is being tweaked). 

Not necessarily a sign of Dementia or that anything is going wrong with our natural brain function - just another symptom of the thing we call Old Age I suppose.

Anyhoo... hope it gives you a laugh
(and only in America!)


An elderly, yet sprightly 83 year old Mrs Gladys Pistolpacker, had finished doing her shopping one day and upon returning to her car, found four men in the act of leaving with her vehicle.

With lightning quick reflex, Mrs Pistolpacker managed to drop her shopping bags and draw her handgun, and then proceeded to scream at the top of her lungs, I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!”. The four men didn't wait for a second threat. They got out and ran like mad.

Gladys, somewhat shaken... then continued loading her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver’s seat. But she was just so rattled from the incident that she couldn't 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 two 6-packs of beer sitting in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces further down!

Gladys Pistolpacker eventually loaded her bags into the correct car and drove to the police station straight away to report her mistake.

The sergeant at the front desk to whom she told the story, couldn't stop laughing! He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale young men were reporting a car jacking by a mad, elderly woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.

The moral of the story?
If you’re going to have a Senior Moment… make it memorable!!

Elderly people protecting themselves
Go ahead Gladys... MAKE MY DAY!
