Now, that we are crawling out of the trenches, I have a few words regarding car alarms.
Having a car alarm that sounds because someone actually touched your car perhaps with the intention of thievery -okay. Having a car alarm that sounds every time the wind blows harder than 2 miles per hour ---WHY?!!!! And how is it that it takes a full cycle of beep-beep-beep-beep-whir-whir-whir-whir-deedeet-deedeet-deedeet-deedeet-wheehoo-wheehoo-wheehoo-wheehoo-beep-beep-beep-beep... for a person to press one stinkin' button on their key ring. It's like the ONLY person on the planet capable of sleeping through that racket is the owner of the car. Craziness.
Our car stereo is not worth being hated by our neighbors. Maybe yours is. shrug.
