Gotta love it!
The other morning, at 0600, my home phone rang. When I answered I heard a terrible beeping in the background and one of our wound clinic VAC patients said, "I am so sorry to bother you but I have tried everything, even turning the goofy thing off, and I can't get this VAC to stop beeping at me!!!" I could not imagine why the VAC would beep even when it was off so I had her push the white button with the circle on it and sure enough, I could still hear the loud beeping. I walked her through everything I could think of but the alarm would not stop. She was sooo exasperated I thought the next step was to throw the blasted contraption against the wall. We decided she should change the canister and call me back.
Within minutes she called me back. I commented on how quiet it was at her house. In a very sheepish voice I heard, "That's because I turned off my alarm clock!" I have not laughed so hard in a long time. What a wonderful way to start my day.
