Hilarious Hump Day – Senility Pays

No one believes seniors . . . everyone thinks they are senile.

An Elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary.  The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighbourhood after they retired. 

Holding hands they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk  they’d shared where Andy had carved ‘I love you, Sally’ way back in Kindergarten.

On their way back home , a bag of money fell out of  an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up, but not sure what to do with it, they took it home.  There, she counted the money:   
fifty-thousand dollars!  

Andy said, ‘We’ve got to give it back.’  

Sally said, ‘Finders keepers.’  

She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic.

The next day, two FBI men were canvassing the neighborhood  
looking for the money and knocked on the door. 

‘Pardon me, but did either of you find a bag  that fell out of an armored car yesterday?’ 
Sally said, ‘No.’  

Andy said, ‘She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.’  

‘Am not.’

‘Are too.’

‘Am not.’

‘Are too.’

Sally patted her aging life partner on the back, winked and smiled at the officers and said, ‘Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile, silly old man.’ 

The agents exchanged looks. One mumbled something to the other about what a ridiculous idea it would be to consider these old fogeys as suspects, the other grumbled back yes, but we gotta follow up on everyone before we can rule anyone out. The first agent turned to Andy and began to question him. He said,  ‘Well, just tell us the story from the beginning’  

Andy said, ‘Well, Sally and I were walking home from Kindergarten yesterday, when …’

The first FBI guy waved his hand to stop the old man. ‘Sorry to bother you, folks. We’re outta here.’

    Oh that is a really good FUNNY! Except I believe in karma, right and wrong…. Aw c’mon Crystal! It’s JOKE for goodness sakes! (Another intelligent conversation – that’s what happens when I talk to myself!) LOL! Okay – it’s obvious who hasn’t had their morning coffee yet…

    Nobody listens to old people? Oh, that’s my problem.

    I liked the joke. **giggle**

    What evil lurks in Granny’s heart? The shadow and Grandpa know.

    Who said we got slower as we got older??? They didn’t know of what they spoke!

  14. moooooog35 / Oct 14 2009 2:26 pm

    This would be funny if old people weren’t so damned creepy.

    • theoldsilly / Oct 14 2009 3:00 pm

      Hey! Did you just call me creepy?! (wink)

    Great one Marvin, made my day reading it.


  16. Galen Kindley / Oct 14 2009 3:49 pm

    Good story, Marv. I’m reminded of me, except not as sharp as Andy. Had they officer asked me, I woulda probably said, what money? or, Who are you again? My memory is notoriously bad.


    • theoldsilly / Oct 14 2009 4:28 pm

      LOL, yeah – you and me both, Galen! 😉

    So that’s why nobody ever believes me about anything… they think I’m just old and senile. Guess I’d better start letting that work to my advantage more often.

    Laugh out Loud Funny! I almost got in trouble with the boss for that one! Thanks for the funny!
