Ding dong!

If that doesn't beat all! The remote button on the key for our new car has an unintended secondary effect. It rings our neighbours' door bell. Every single time we lock or unlock the car. And worse, it doesn't just set off the standard "ding-dong" chime they get when the door bell is pressed. It has discovered whole new levels of chime nobody suspected lurked inside that bell ... "Ding dong ding DONG! Dong dong ding DING! Ding dong ding DONG! Dong dong ding DONG!!!!" Think Big Ben without the hour striking at the end of the chime. Thank goodness they have a good sense of humour ... and a bell that can be easily disabled and cheaply replaced!

That is so funny. Reminds me of a chldren's book we have (and had growing up) The Case of the Dumb Bells. The boys set up some club house phone systems and everyone's door bells were ringing.
