An old man woke up in the middle of the night to discover that some punks were breaking into his shed. He called 911, but the dispatcher told him that there were no patrol cars available, but to just stay in his house, and someone would be by when they could.
The old man quietly hung up, thought about that, then called 911 back. He said, "You don't have to worry about those punks any more, I went out and shot them all." Then he hung up.
Three minutes later, four cop cars, a SWAT team and two Sheriff department cars all roared up to his house. They caught the three punks who were still stealing from the old man's shed.
Approaching the old man, and quite pissed off, the Chief of Police said, "I thought you said you killed them all?"
To which the old man said, "I thought you said you didn't have anyone available."
