city living status: I have just mentally prepared myself for how to deal with an incessant car alarm next time it happens.

wait 15 minutes to let the owner address it. then: crawl under, use a screwdriver to pop the hood latch, disconnect the battery. byee

@t54r4n1 do cars not have battery backups for the alarm that don't require the main battery?

@earthtopus I mean, I can unplug other stuff until I figure it out at that point. like the horn itself

@t54r4n1 one of the awful things about that awful condo in Capitola was that there was someone who did not know or could not figure out the combination of lock/unlock methods that wouldn't set off their alarm and set it off every. single. morning. while they cursed and fumbled around on their way to work

@lawremipsum @t54r4n1 and out back through the bathroom window one could hear a neighbor retching multiple times a day, what an apartment complex that was

@earthtopus sure does sound like someone you want making the ten thousand life or death decisions that are involved with operating heavy machinery

IDK who invented the car alarm, but they're not my friend...
