Men in Blue

My phone rang at 5 o’clock this morning. Having gone to bed after midnight, I wasn’t too thrilled.

I didn’t answer it, and immediately Whitey’s phone began ringing.

Oh no, I thought.

It was our security company, and the alarm had been set off. Police were already at the restaurant, and she asked that we show up immediately to disarm the alarm (which is unbelievably loud) and to allow entry to the building.

Whitey got dressed and was there in less than five minutes.

The officers on the scene had surrounded the building, and said that they heard voices in the kitchen.

Whitey became nervous until he realized it was the pre-recorded female voice that announces “Front Door” or “Back Door” whenever the doors open. The alarm had stopped blaring, but her voice continued to prompt someone to re-set the alarm.

It turns out that it was one of our food vendors who inadvertently pressed the wrong codes into the alarm box after it had been tripped.

Nice to know that the cops showed up so quickly, though.


And in other legality news….

a couple who are renting one of the vacation rentals here in Baker won’t move out, and won’t pay for their lodging. Needless to say this is a bit stressful, and I’m heading to the courthouse this afternoon to delve into the legal process of eviction. This should be interesting.

    Can’t I just go over and intimidate them out? Eww even better idea! Can we spend the night in the place next to them? By the time we are done, there will be no trace of them. Amazing how a drunk LJ singing “Dead Or Alive” can clear a room…
