An elderly woman did her shopping and, upon returning
to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with
her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags, drew her
handgun, and proceeded to scream at them at the top of
her voice, "I have a gun and I know how to use it! Get
out of the car, you scumbags!"

The four men didn't wait for a second invitation but got
out and ran like mad.  The woman, somewhat shaken, proceeded
to load her shopping bags in the back of the car and get into
the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her
key into the ignition. She tried and tried, to no avail.

And then it dawned on her why.  A few minutes later, she
found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down.
She loaded her bags into her car and drove to the police station.

The sergeant, to whom she told the story, nearly tore himself
in two with laughter and pointed to the other end of the counter,
where four pale males were reporting a carjacking by a mad elderly
woman described as white, less than five feet tall, glasses, curly
white hair, and carrying a large handgun.

No charges were filed.
