Experience Wonder with these Cool Pics:
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 lungs, “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 threat. 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 she realized why. It was for the same reason she had wondered 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 further 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.
The moral of the story?
If you’re going to have a senior moment….make it memorable.

Money Smarts”: Vote for our video daily, now through August 31!
One of our vendors, GoBankingRates, launched their 2015 #MoneyMinute Video Challenge.
Contestants were asked to submit their favorite money tip in a 60-second video, and Mission Fed was encouraged to participate.
We thought it would be fun (and ironic) to borrow the format of an infomercial from a shopping channel and use it for something with genuine value: tips on how to save money. Mission Fed team members put on their acting hats for “Money Smarts” to talk about the 50/30/20 Rule for saving money. The clever script was written by our internal Multimedia Producer and Developer.
Voting runs from August 3-31, and you can vote daily.
Watch the video and vote by clicking the THUMBS UP button here: http://www.gobankingrates.com/personal-finance/50-30-20-rule/
The videos with the most votes are then judged by a panel and the winners will be announced in September during #FinCon15 (a conference for digital content creators in personal finance and investing). The Grand Prize winner receives a $1,000 prize! If our video is selected, the $1,000 will be donated to one of Mission Fed’s nonprofit community partners.
GoBankingRates is a national website dedicated to connecting readers with the best interest rates on financial services nationwide, as well as informative personal finance content, news and tools.
Thanks this week go to Maurice C, Ron S, Drew S, Arman S-B, Heidi E, Vince N, Robin M and Larry H!
Pay it Forward, you can’t take it with you…
