Check out these seven cool short stories and enjoy your weekend. Have fun and keep smiling! 🙂
1. How to Get the Police to Respond Really Quickly
Did you hear about the guy who called the police because he saw some people stealing things out of the shed in his back yard? The police asked him if they were in his house and he said, “No.” Then the police said that all units were busy and he should lock his doors. They would send someone as soon as they could.
The guy hung up, waited 30 seconds and called back. “I just called you about the people stealing things out of my shed. Well, don’t worry about it, I shot them.”
In less than five minutes, police cars screeched into his driveway, sirens blaring, and caught the thieves red-handed.
“I thought you said you shot them,” said the officer.
“Thought you said no one was available,” he replied.
2. Support a family
The prospective son-in-law was asked by his girl friend’s father, “Son, can you support a family?”
“Well, no, sir,” he replied. “I was just planning to support your daughter. The rest of you have to fend for yourselves.”
3. Do it gently
My wife left for a business trip one morning. And later that day our dog died. That evening, she called and asked how everything was and I told her, “The dog died!”
Crying into the phone she sobbed, “You could’ve broken the news to me gently!”
I asked her, “What should I have told you instead?”
She opined, “This is how you should’ve done it: First, you tell me she’s on the roof. Then the next day, you tell me she fell off. Then the next, she’s in the hospital. And then finally, on the last day of my trip, you tell me she died from her injuries.”
I pondered on her advice and agreed. “Okay, honey. I’ll do it more gently next time.”
Finding some relief in my response she continued to ask me, “So how’s your mother doing?”
I told her, “She’s on the roof!”
4. Strange family
Boy: My father’s name is Laughting and my mother’s name is Smiling.
Teacher: You must be kidding?
Boy: No, that’s my brother. I’m Joking…
5. Water pistol
My five year old son squealed with delight when he opened his birthday present from his grandmother. It was a water pistol. He promptly ran to the sink to fill it.
“Mom,” I said. “I’m surprised at you. Don’t you remember how we used to drive you crazy with water pistols?”
My mom smiled and said, “Yes, I remember.”
Q: What starts with a P, ends with an E, and has a million letters in it?
A: Post Office!
7. Being kind!
I did an amazing thing today. I gave my seat on the bus to a blind person.
I lost my job as a bus driver.
