Making The Police More Efficient! - Nice One

Fred was going to bed when his wife told him that he had left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window.

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

He rang the police, who asked "Are the thieves in your house?" Fred said "no". The cops then said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock all his doors and an officer would be along when available.

Fred said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 60, and phoned the police again.

"Hello, I just called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just shot all of them." Then he hung up.

Within five minutes four police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at his residence and caught the intruders red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to Fred: "I thought you said that you had shot them!"

Fred said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"
