Everything that could go wrong ...did

by jl333 on October 5, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Not only did the teenage girl over sleep this morning (I didn't...I was just waiting for her to wake up to her alarm), but then as soon as she woke up, she opened up the side door without turning off the house alarm. The house alarm starts blaring, probably waking up all of the neighbors. So now we have dispatch calling us, and we had to give our address and password to let the dispatcher know it was us that mistakenly opened up the door. Once again, luckily I was here...because the daughter didn't even know the password. Yikes.
