Car Alarms Get Attention But, Is It The Right Kind of Attention?

I'm sure you've all been there before, floating along blissfully in a far away and sometimes difficult destination to reach, Dreamland. When all of a sudden BAM! Some incessantly obnoxious ringing sound pierces through your peaceful existence and yanks you far too early back into reality. Living by the beach and in cities most my life, I've trained myself to ignore these monstrosities of noise otherwise known as car alarms. I always tell myself, well someone's either going to steal the car or the owner will realize how inconsiderate they're being by allowing the sound to go on. Either way, it'll stop soon. Go back to the fluffy clouds, go back to that Happy Gilmore "happy place", it'll be over soon.

But, no....on and on the alarm rang this morning, no one stole the car and no one came to silence it. I turned to my boyfriend and said, "Do you think if I threw a rock through the window, it'd stop?" He said, "There are people outside saying the same thing!" Then, I heard one of my neighbors say exactly what we were all thinking, "Steal the *bleeping* car already!!!!!"

Here's my point: in the early days of car alarms, they might actually have worked for their intended purpose, to scare away thieves or alert neighbors so that someone would call the police. However, now society has become inundated with car alarms going off without any reason that we no longer care if your car is stolen- we just want it to shut up.
