What a Way to Start the Day

You know what the only thing better than having to work on Saturday is?

Coming in on Saturday and having the security system not recognize the code, thus setting off the incessant, high-pitched alarm, which then blares at a deafening level for the 30 minutes it takes for the cops to show up and shut it down. Oh, and the alarm has almost no variation, so you can't even have fun and do the Dane Cook car alarm sing-along.

There was one brief moment when it shifted from its "wheee-ooo, wheee-ooo" pattern to a very Morse code sounding pattern; I think it was trying to tell us something. But, we were unable to communicate with it, so it quickly grew irritated with our ignorance and returned to its old "whee-ooo, whee-ooo" ways.
