I thought this was cute! For all you old people out there, ya ought to try this! :P Okay, well, maybe not...but I want to be this way when I get old. :)

This is a true account as recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida...

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 voice, "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 invitation. 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 it dawned on her why...............................

For the same reason she did not understand 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.

If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it a memorable one!!!!!

That's hilarious. My mom almost died laughing when I told her. Where did you find it?

My great-aunt actually sent it to us. She loves spamming us with approximately three forwarded (multiple tiems) messages a day. Some are really wacky, and there are the occasional good ones such as this one. I'm glad your mom enjoyed it! :)

LOL, that's a funny story. Sorry to bust your bubble, but acording to Snopes.com, it's an urban legend. :-/ http://www.snopes.com/crime/justice/grannies.asp
