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.”
On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armoured car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, 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 police officers were canvassing the neighbourhood looking for the money and knocked on their door. “Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armoured car yesterday?”
Sally said “No”.
Andy said “She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.”
Sally said “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile.”
The agents turned to Andy and began to question him.
One said “Tell us the story from the beginning.”
Andy said “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday …”
The first police officer turned to his partner and said “We’re outta here!”
