Don't Mess With Little Old Ladys

When I was in Deputy Sheriff I was asked several times if we let Old Ladies get away with more. Of course you do. We learned that lesson very quickly when we were first getting started as officers. One reason is you are not going to win an argument with them and here is an example of another reason.


An older lady gets pulled over for speeding...

Older Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?

Officer: Ma'am, you were speeding.

Older Woman: Oh, I see.

Officer: Can I see your license please?

Older Woman:I'd give it to you but I don't
have one.

Officer: Don't have one?

Older Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for
drunk driving.

Officer: I see...Can I see your vehicle
registration papers please.

Older Woman: I can't do that.

Officer: Why not?

Older Woman: I stole this car.

Officer: Stole it?

Older Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked
up the owner.

Officer: You what?

Older Woman: His body parts are in plastic
bags in the trunk if you want to see

The Officer looks at the woman and slowly
backs away to his car and calls for back up.
Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car.
A senior officer slowly approaches the car,
clasping his half drawn gun.

Officer 2: Ma'am, could you step out of your
vehicle please! The woman steps out of her

Older woman: Is there a problem sir?

Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you
have stolen this car and murdered the owner.

Older Woman: Murdered the owner?

Officer 2: Yes, could you please open the trunk
of your car, please.

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing
but an empty trunk.

Officer 2: Is this your car, ma'am?

Older Woman: Yes, here are the registration
The officer is quite stunned.

Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you
do not have a driving license.

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls
out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.

The officer examines the license. He looks
quite puzzled.

Officer 2: Thank you ma'am, one of my officers
told me you didn't have a license, that you stole
this car, and that you murdered and hacked up
the owner.

Older Woman: Bet the liar told you I was
speeding, too!!!!

President Hayes Helped Set a Record.

Today celebrates one of the shortest times before a agreement with Native Americans was made and then broken. On January 10, 1879 President Rutherford Hayes, by Executive Order, added to the Gila River Reserve Pima Agency. The reserve had been originally established February 28, 1859. The order also added land to the Pima and Maricopa Reservation. Less then 5 months later President Hayes changed his mind and on June 14, 1879 the land given to the Pima'a and the Maricopa's was taken back. Who said the government could not move fast?
