When my smoke detectors started going off this afternoon (probably because a bug had crawled inside one of them), I thought about all the times my mom argued with our alarm company in VT. Whenever she would call to try to fix something, they would tell her she couldn’t because my dad was the primary account holder. It really pissed her off. Fortunately, my alarm company didn’t give me any trouble, but they couldn’t fix my problem either because the bug had crawled into one of the smoke detectors that is not hooked up to the main system.
