Going to be the other night, I noticed people in my shed stealing things. I phoned the police but was told no one was in the area to help. They said they would send someone as soon as possible. I hung up. A minute later I rang again. "Hello," I said, I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed. You don't have to hurry now, because I've shot them." Within minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area, plus helicopters and an armed response unit. They caught the burglars red-handed. One of the officers said: "I thought you said you'd shot them." To which I replied: "I thought you said there was no one available."
