What was that noise in Belco????

By stirred408 - 28 October 2008 27

For about 3 hours last night a siren was going off in the Scullin/Florey area.  The cops said it was a school and that they couldn’t do anything because it was a security problem??!?!?!

It is likely a couple of hundred people were kept awake because of this noise.

Does anyone know what happenend????

What’s Your opinion?

many years ago, back when it actually rained, I was in my rural locale and it was pouring rain and thundering. Something set off a house alarm down the hill, maybe tripped by lightning, and it went and went.

A neighbour must have called the police, because they appeared, and stooged around the house a bit in their car (NSW police). Then they drove out, and came up my driveway! I went out on to the deck to see what htey were about, and after singing up to ask if I lived there (I was in a sarong and bare feet, hmmm), they then enquired how long the alarm had been going.

I vaguely opined it had been going quite a long time. “15 minutes or more?” asked the cop hopefully. I agreed it had easily been that long and probably longer. “Beauty, we’ll do them a ticket” he said happily, and off they went, in the rain.

That alarm was never heard again, I must say.

Oh, and in regards to the question: “What was that noise in Belco????” … I’m guessing an alarm went off … in the school.

*guffaw*

Ooh, ooh! I know what ‘tais toi’ means from trivia!!

*chuckle*

The other one I had to google: How rude is the verb “foutre”?

Actually, Al, I think stirred was just subbing his nomination (approved) for the biggest tosser on any side of any lake with his comment.

stirred may be nominated but you’re the sitting member.

if only there was an ‘ignore’ option i’d be able to ignore the verbose, precious wankfests that are your every post.

Coming from someone who’s made 57 COMMENTS but not a single POST, your pathetic taunt is also very easy to ignore, D-Man.

Snap! Ignored.

Stand up and be counted or ‘tais toi’ as they say in French. Ou ‘fous le camp’, si vous plait.

At risk of upsetting Stirred’s sensitive, sleep-deprived and humour-free state again, all alarms are supposed to be set to switch off after 2 minutes – otherwise is noise pollution. Canberra Connect 132281.
