laughs... Now first off I am only 27 years old. I went home asked my sister if she was going to use the house phone, if I could get online I waited for 30 minutes to get my computer to start up... Then I heard her talkin g on the phone by then I was peeved I pulled the plug out of the wall,and was about to walk back to my parents... That is when she informed me she was on her cell phone and not the house phone... I feel stupid then.... :) ... But Not as stupid as this other story I am sharing... I recieved this in an email from my friends. :). - DNatureofDTrain =================== Senior Carjacking This is a true account as recorded in the Police Log of Sarasota, Florida... An elderly Florida lady 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 and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at the top of her voice, "I have a gun, and I know how to use it! Get out of the car!" The four men didn't wait for a second invitation. They got out and ran like mad. The lady, somewhat shaken, then proceeded to load her shopping bags into the back of the car and got into the driver's seat. She was so shaken that she could not get her key into the ignition. She tried and tried, and then it dawned on her why... For the same reason she did not understand why there was a football, a Frisbee and two 12 packs of beer in the front seat! A few minutes later, she found her own car parked four or five spaces farther down. She loaded her bags into the car and drove to the police station to report her mistake. The sergeant to whom she told the story couldn't stop laughing. He pointed to the other end of the counter, where four pale men were reporting a car jacking 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. If you're going to have a Senior Moment, make it a memorable one!

Well, I am not making fun to be mean, or nasty or to upset people. I know I deal with memory problems, and do really silly things at times. Many people who do have these problems, find making jokes out of their problems is a way of coping with the problem. Instead of feeling bad they did these things, when they really can not help it... That is why many people make fun of many topics they normally in other circumstanced would not see as funny. It is about coping with what bothers them, as if they can find a way to make a joke about it or laugh at it, it is not so upsetting to them, after awhile... Now if I ran around telling jokes about an individual that was offended by it and they told me they were... Than I would disagree about that. This one joke I posted here has been circulating the internet for years in many different groups and forums... So I did not post this to be malicious. - DNatureofDTrain

The braodband connection that I have is independent of the telephone although it comes from the same telephone line. Anyone can use the telephone to take or receive calls, but the Internet is connected 24 hours a day for a fixed sum of $25 per month. I too have a true story to tell similar to yours. I once worked as accountant in a company which has only a dial up connection. We just use it to upload the emails and to send mails and disconnect afterwards. Once when I was trying to connect to receive an emergency email, one lady employee said that her mother was sick and had to make an urgent call. I too allowed and waited for her to make the call. She was talking for a long time and I just came to her to see why she was taking so long. Do you know what she was talking. Here is what I heard. "Now dear, isn't it wonderful if the people in the world were more pious and religious...how is the climate over there oh this time luckily the drains didn't overflow....how nice if I could go on a pilgirmage to India dear but how to pay the airfare..." I lost my temper and disconnected the line and connected to the Internet.

No I was not connected I went to sign in, and it was saying unable to connect. So I thought she was on the regular phone, and heard her stay to her son no no mommys on the phone. So my Post Traumatic Stress kicked in a little bit there, as in the past they have picked up the phone and just called people after telling me I could go ahead, Man I was fuming. But Now I laugh about it... Feeling like major idiot :) .. As For Putting things in the wrong place? Oh yeah Cereal in my glass apple juice in my bowl, milk poored in a glass, as I drink out of my bowl... hmm ... I never said I was normal did I? giggles :) . - DNatureofDTrain

LOL. This is so funny. Thanks. Well I have a lot of senior moments but I think it's just because of my absentmindedness. Like my boyfriend and I, whenever we eat out, I always ask him to carry my wallet for me, after a few minutes, I start getting frantic and fumbling my pockets and he asks why and I told him, where's my wallet? He just laughs and hold out his hand that were holding my wallet.

I agree with you. You want to make sure that the memory of it will start you laughing again. I bet those officers still tell this story and get a charge over it even today. I know I would. What a laugh. Thanks for the great chuckle!

I know if I was an officer, I would be so relieved to realise it was a woman having a senior moment instead of a real car theft :) . Thanks for replying. - DNatureofDTrain
