I set off the smoke alarm again. And this wouldn't have happened if the maintenence man would have left the damn thing on the floor. See, I had set it off so many times before that I just ripped the sucker out because it was annoying. We have about ten in our apartment, so there was defnitely no chance to burning to a crisp.
I had a candle burning. yes, a candle, and yes, only one candle and the damn smoke detector went off. I look over and its a burning inferno, but still ONE CANDLE!
So I grabbed the thing, surprising i remeber to cover it with something so my hands wouldn't sear off, and threw it in the sink. No more candle, it was a flaming mess.
