Her comment "I think the dishwasher has teamed up with the police to have them follow you!" may have been in jest, but it got me thinking. Maybe there is a link between these two occurrences? This morning I watched a police car drive past me as I walked to the train, then proceed to turn around at the nearby roundabout and drive back past me! Very suspicious. I also caught a glimpse of another as I rode the bus up to University. Heading out on the motorway to pick up dinner tonight, yet another one showed up. This time it appeared out of nowhere, from an obscured on-ramp and drove fast enough so that I had to let it in front of me. Naturally, no one was driving too quickly so I couldn't change lanes, meaning I was stuck behind this police car the whole time. So that really got me thinking.
Maybe the hot water, mastermind behind the dishwasher incidents, has links with the emergency services. Which would, of course, explain why for the last few years we have had so many 'accidental' fire alarms go off. So simple, yet so cunning. When we least expect it, suddenly the siren starts screeching and we all have to evacuate no matter what. It's got me in the middle of a shower and at 2am on a freezing night. And the siren is really loud too; it's not located on the outside of our house, oh no. It's right in the middle of the hall. A full blast siren, in the house. It screams and screams, until we leave or cover it with a towel. This procedure has become so routine; it's already happened twice this year and could happen again.
The people who come to investigate after the firemen have left (at great expense) never seem to find the problem- just a 'faulty' sensor. There sure have been a few !! It's very easy to see how the water can keep in touch with the Fire Brigade- every time they arrive, they set up their pump next to our house. Obviously it's a secret system it uses to take control of the units, and thus the whole fire-fighting force. As for the Police, I'd say the water gives me some sort of marker or scent that they track. Likewise the Ambulances, which pass by me so often since I live right near the hospital- a perfect cover for them to track me!
So another conspiracy has been unveiled. As hard as it is to believe, the Police cars aren't actually sexually attracted to me! They are just drawn to the trace, doing the bidding of the hot water so it can keep watch on me while I am away from home. I should be worried; I wonder how far the reach of this devious aqua-fiend extends?
