So today I had one of the most embarrassing experiences of my life. While getting in my car, I accidentally set of the alarm. Normally, this is no big problem. For me, however, it was.

You see, I have a short in the power locks that drains the battery. Which means I've had to pull the fuse out. Which means I have no power locks. Can you see where this is going? No locks meant I couldn't turn off the alarm with the remote. My only option was to go under the hood, disconnect the battery, and connect it again. Naturally, this whole thing goes down on Main Street, which means there are at least twenty people that could see this happening. And what they see is a guy messing with the wiring of a car whose alarm is going off. For all they know, I'm trying to steal the damn thing. I finished as quickly as I could, and drove off. Needless to say this whole thing was quite embarrassing, and as I drove away I kept expecting to see blue lights in the mirror.
