Annoying Alarm Clock

Recently, one of my neighbours set his/her alarm clock to ring at 6am.  That's pretty fine if the alarm clock can wake up its owner in time.  Unfortunately in my case, that alarm clock can ring so loud that the whole block can hear it, but its owner.  On Monday, the alarm went off at 6am sharp, and kept ringing and ringing until 6.23am.  It is still not that bad, at least it only rang for 23 minutes, long, but still tolerable.

Then today, that same alarm clock went off at 6am again, as it has been programmed to.  But then can you guess how long that it rang?  From 6am till 8.30am!!!  Two and a half hours!!!

I was waken up by the alarm, and tried to find the source to no avail.  The alarm just kept ringing and ringing and ringing, never a minute of silence.  Out of frustration, I called our friendly neighbourhood police at around 8am.  They sent someone down at around 8.15am.  The officer said the sound sounds like an alarm clock, they could only see what they could do, but it was difficult to locate the source.

At 8.30am, the alarm finally stopped.  I don't know whether the alarm clock woke up its owner eventually or our police officers managed to locate the alarm clock.

I hope this will not repeat in the coming days.
