San Franciscans Lose Their Shit Over Driver's Annoying Car Alarm

If you asked us, since its inception, the audible car alarm has been about as useless as diet water, pet rocks, or the two-person sweatshirt.

No, we don't have scientific proof of all that, but what we do have are enough anecdotes like the one above (which we spotted on Reddit on Monday), illustrating once again that the only thing your car alarm will do right is torment the entire neighborhood with its nagging noise.

Who knows if the above San Francisco driver actually dodged any car crooks with that skittish alarm. What we do know for sure is that the mysterious driver is definitely driving the wrong kind of people the right amount of crazy.

Update: Apparently, the image which resurfaced yesterday on Reddit was taken back in 2003. A decade later, it's still relevant and damn funny!

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
