I hate burglar alarms

Specifically, I hate mine. When I moved in here nine years ago I was assured that the alarm had been disconnected.

It just went crazy, and for the past half hour has been making a fearful racket right about when I want to go to bed. The first eight alarm companies who advertised in the yelow pages as doing 24 hour call-outs aren't answering their phones. When I finally did manage to get someone, he said he'll be with me in forty five minutes. Oh joy. My neighbours are going to hate me.
