Default FIRE!!!!!!

(SMOKE ALARM BLARRING) So I awaken 10' in the air halfway through a triple lindy land w/ the agility of a ninja, I bolt for the stairs, run over the wife as she runs to get the kids. jump down 18 stairs run for the kitchen grab the fire extinguisher. No fire!!! I turn around run for the basement jump and slide down the stairs, jump up no fire. I run to the office, run to the laundry room, run to the storage area w/ the heating unit and hot water heater.... nothing!!! i run back up stairs, nothing..WTF... no f'n fire (thank god) seems like the smoke detector just went nuts and went off for no reason. needles to say i could not sleep the rest of the night and all is well....

:goodmorning:

tribute to the man.....

I see that being the highest scoring dive at the next summer olympics


Seriously,

Good to have the alarm and not need it that need it and not have it

I'd call a service tech and get it checked

Wow admireable reflexes man.
Life must change a lot when you get a family. Once when the alarm went off in the apartment, i groggily got up and pulled the alarm off the ceiling and went back to bed.

Next...check the instructions and see if it does Carbon Monoxide and other things that you may not be able to see or smell.

Wait... I think you guys didn't read the whole post...
This was a Rodney Dangerfield skit, and he was posting it as a tribute.
