Good ole' Homeland Security!

Nothing like a healthy dose of fear on September 11th.

At the Blood Bank we had our alarm go off on our Irradiator, for no reason.

Okay, first, you need to understand that this IS a Radiation Devise, in which you have to go through a FBI back ground check, has a metal cage around it with huge locks, that cannot be opened without a key that is behind a keyed lock, you need a fingerprint and badge to open it, fill out an RPR1A form for the State Radiation Officer, and 2 letters of recommendation.


So... the alarm went off for no reason and security was alerted. Now, this alarm is not a pretty sound and would not shut off. I felt myself turning into Rainman... Buzzing... def..definitely buzzing... Campus police showed up and Hospital security. It was my finger that opened the door and made the alarm go off, so they had to question me. Nothing like 5 alarmed police officer questioning you about your terrorist activities. Me? The Mormon wife of a member of the Bishopric. Great!! We finally got a hold of someone who turned the alarm off, but he had to shut off the system. Which meant, we got to irradiate our blood with an armed guard standing like a Sentinel watching our every move.

I'm sure we wouldn't have gotten the royal treatment if it were any other day!!

I think you set off the alarm because you still had a little chocolate smudged on your finger from lunch.
