"A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones." (Proverbs 17:22) I had to quote that verse from Proverbs to justify posting this funny story.
An elderly transplant to Peterborough, Ontario* called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into. She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher: "They've stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!" she cried.
The dispatcher says, "Stay calm, Ma'am, an officer is on the way."
A few minutes later, the officer radios in.
"Disregard", he says, "she got in the back seat by mistake."
* - The average age in Peterborough is around 89 years old. We have more seniors' residences than any other city in North America. Well...almost.
