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.

Share this with all your friends to give them a good laugh 😁😁

  1. LOL … Many years ago, I was leaving the grocery store, put my groceries in the car, then attempted to get into my car. It took me a few minutes for me to figure out that it wasn’t my car. The embarrassing part was the owner of the car came out into the parking lot with his groceries just as I was getting my groceries back out of his car.

  2. I had a somewhat similar experience in grad school, tho without firearms or terrified car owners. We had a white Bronco that belonged to the university for field work. We checked it out & loaded it with our nets & other equipment the afternoon before our dawn field work. Went out at dawn, unlocked the white Bronco, hopped in & started it up. Then I looked in the back section & saw no nets or field equipment, but there was a guitar. I asked why we were taking a guitar for sampling in the tidal creeks. We looked around (still sorta bleary b/c of the hour). It was the white Bronco belonging to one of the professors; the uni’s field Bronco (same year & model) was a couple parking slots over. The same key worked for both.

    We got a lot more laughs out of that than I bet those 4 guys did.
