Boy, stop crying wolf!

The smoke detector keeps chirping but nothing is cooking or burning.

Now the tornado siren is going off and neither the TV nor weather.com nor the bright sky outside leads me to believe that there is actually a tornado going on.

Are you trying to FRIGHTEN me to death? Just burn me or tornado me already, for heaven's sake. Is it some kind of Friday the 13th prank?

Are the batteries running low in the detector?

After the hail and thunder, the siren kind of makes sense... :(

I was just going to suggest you check the batteries on the detector, but Mr. B***** beat me to it. He is so smart.

Sounds like someone was home alone.

No, I was there. She was only there for about two of the seven hours of the smoke detector screeching. I don't know how to change the batteries in the smoke detector.

You should learn to change them for your own protection. Merely flip the top off, pull out the battery and replace it. However, you have to have the right battery (9 V). I can do it, but usually leave that for the man of the house since he is much taller and can do it w/o a step ladder.

Why don't you just handle this as you would if something malfunctioned in the Sims? Move out the family and buldoze the entire lot!
