People to kill.... [Oct. 17th, 2000|10:21 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
... my housemate Brittany, for buying a car alarm for her Jeep that would put even the most gang-bangin' homey-g-wannabe to shame.

It's raining now and with every raindrop that hits the car, the alarm chirps. I kid you not --- the thing is beeping incessantly. I'm about to take a baseball bat to it, because the continual siren might be less annoying.

wtf?

What's the point of having an alarm on a jeep wrangler if someone can just slash through the plastic to get in? That's fucked up.

Re: wtf?

she just had it put on because it was broken into last week, when she put her hardtop on. I'm sure that if there was some alarm to keep someone from keying your car you would have liked that too.

Re: wtf?

But an alarm can't PREVENT vandalism from happening, it merely draws attention to it. Picture: 4 in the morning, everyone is asleep (except Brad, who might be up programming)... you walk up, key a car, alarm goes off, you run away. Who sees you? No one.. it's fucking 4 in the morning. I agree that alarms have their purpose, but I think they're way more effective in the daylight.. unfortunately, even then nobody really seems to do anything when they see an alarm go off.

Re: wtf?

Ok, so maybe you can't see it.. but as soon as you hear it, your EYES are drawn to it's source. So you are, in a sense, seeing it.
