The Funniest Senior Moment...


An elderly Florida 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 the car!”
The four men didn't 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 not get her key into the ignition. 

She tried and tried, and then she realized why. It was for the same reason she had wondered why there was a football, a Frisbee and 
two 12-packs of beer in the front seat. A few minutes later, she found her own car parked  four or five spaces farther down.

She loaded her bags into the car and drove 
to the police station to report her mistake.

The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale 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.

Please share this fun story with friends

Dick and Irene 11/14. Went shopping one day, came out to the lot to put bags in car. Here we sit all buckled in and my husband couldn't get the keys to work. He checked everything, even banged on the dash in anger. I don't know why, but Im looked by my feet only to see lots of cheerios. We are both older and don't eat cheerios any more. It didn't take long to see that we'd loaded the wrong van. Our's was identical except for the cereal on the floor. We laughed for quite a while.

One time someone at the senior center became ill and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. I went outside to leave and saw someone in my car. I hurried up to it and yelled "What are you doing in my car?" The person jumped out and I saw it was a staff member. She said she was taking the guy's car to the hospital. It turned out that both cars were the same make, model, and color. Plus they both had military ID in the window. His keys fit in my door and the ignition.

this story , while being funny, illustrates the danger of some people being allowed to carry guns. Different scenario: She shouts 'Get out of the car,' & opens fire. Result 4 dead / injured innocent people. Bit different isn't it?

Amusing...this situation has happened to me before. This is why I have an appointment for evaluation at Cleveland Clinic for work-up of early onset Alzheimer's.

Remember when everyone was buying those colored balls to put on their antenna's so they could find their car in a crowded parking lot? Now everyone gets everything online so the parking lots are virtually empty. Much better.

Anonymous no one was hurt. I don't believe that it's against the law to draw your gun when you fear you are being robbed. The woman was mistaken not violent. No support for gun control in this story.

Anonymous, imagine a different. Scenario. The old lady finds the 4 men attempting to kidnap a young girl. She, threatens them with her gun and they run away. She possibly saves a life and is a hero.

I worked with a lady that went to the mall to do some shopping. After a couple of hours she went to put the packages in her car and her key wouldn't unlock the doors or the trunk. She calls her husband and he tries to unlock the car. He looks at the licenses plate and realizes it is not their car. Their car had been stolen and a same make and a same color car had parked in the same parking spot. Their car was found 3 days later.
