Fire alarms at 4am

At 4am this morning the fire alarms in the building started going off!  I knew as soon as they started that the concierge was going to announce that there was an “alarm situation” on the 31st floor.  These “alarm situations” always seem to happen there.  They also happen a lot at really odd times when no one should be cooking.

This condo has three seperate speakers that the fire alarm sounds through.  There is one in each bedroom, and another by the kitchen.  There’s no way you would sleep through the alarm when it goes off!  There is also a pad on the wall near the kitchen that you can press to silence the alarm.  The problem is whenever the concierge makes an announcement to tell you what is happening during the alarm, it will go off again in your condo.  I guess it’s good in case you fall back to sleep, but they announce things twice and it gets annoying shutting it off over and over.

This morning I didn’t turn it off.  Keisha decided to howl the whole time the alarm was going off, which was for quite a while, and she was jumping around in her crate even after it had stopped.  Sophie is use to it, so she just calmly waited to find out what we were going to do.

What annoys me most is the fact that it’s always on the same floor, and that there are only 8 condos on that floor!  Chances are that it’s the same person causing the fire alarms to go off over and over! 

Now that I’ve vented a bit I’m going to go try to get some sleep.  it’s 6:39am and I’m so tired I’m getting a headache.  Sophie’s sleeping in the chair and Keisha’s sleeping in her crate.  I’m about to go join them and sleep on the couch.  Hopefully there won’t be any more “alarm situations” today.
