** True Story or Urban Myth? **
Doreen, aged 79, finished all the shopping on her weekly list at
Walmart supermarket. She walked determinedly towards her car
which she had left in the car park. There she saw four youths
about to drive away in her car. Doreen became agitated and
dropping her shopping to the ground, she drew a handgun from
her bag and screamed as loud as her lungs would allow at the
four miscreants, "I have a gun and I know how to use it. Get out
of the car you horrible little men."
The four lads didn't wait around for a second invitation but got
out and ran helter-skelter as far away as they could, whereupon
Doreen, somewhat shaken, proceeded to load her shopping
bags into the back of the car and get into the driver's seat. As
hard as Doreen tried she could not get her key into the ignition.
Then it began to dawn on her why.
She came across her own car a few moments later in another
row near by. Putting her bags now, into her own car, she drove
hesitantly to the nearest Police Station. As Patricia was
recounting the tale to the Duty Sergeant she wondered why
he kept giggling and smiling. Eventually he pointed to the
end of the counter where dear old dizzy Doreen saw four
young lads, faces extremely pale, who were describing how
a little old lady, some 5 foot tall, wearing glasses and with
grey hair had stolen their car by waving a gun at them.
Doreen was not charged with anything.
