Going to bed 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.Ã‚Â They said they would send someone over as soon as possible.
I hung up.Ã‚Â A minute later I rang again. ‘Hello’ I said, ‘I called you a minute ago because there were people in my shed.Ã‚Â You don’t have to hurry now, because I’ve shot them.’
Within minute there were half a dozen police cars in the area, plus helicopters and an armed response unit.Ã‚Â 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.’
Two things I get from this letter to the editor:Ã‚Â Tony doesn’t like commas, and Tony doesn’t understand triage.
