Cons of West End Living

Alarms go off constantly, office alarms, fire alarms, car alarms, sensor alarms, sirens. An alarm in the office opposite started up at 2am friday night, (I know that's really saturday morning, but it's friday night to me) and is still going now - 7.30pm saturday evening, and is set to be going until monday morning when people come back to work. There is nothing you can do, apart from put earplugs in or turn your music up, which is what the guys downstairs did at 3am last night. Guardian reader rang the council this morning, who are very helpful but unable to do anything. It's a fire alarm, so they can't enter the building. The fire brigade turned up earlier today and tried to prise open a window, ladders came out and burly men proceeded to mount them, which was nice, but didn't stop the alarm. They left, The alarm wails on. And on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, you get my drift...
