late night confession

Ok I did it.. it was me.

2 hours ago I started getting annoyed by a loud clicking sound from right outside my window. It sounded like a nail gun or something but then i realized it had to be something more mechanistic.. it was 2 short loud clicks then a longish pause over and over every minute or two. I was bewildered. So I pressed my face to the screen in my window to see if i could identify the sound. it kinda sounded like it was coming from the now absurdly full dumpster or maybe just over the fence near the other apartment complex. So I decide its way to annoying to go to bed like this as i start putting my clothes back on to go outside and investigate. I got halfway to the fence when the loud clicks startled me! I was surprised to hear the noise directly behind me already. This time I saw that it was coming from a white car with an obvious problem. its 12:30am and this car's trunk is wide open! on closer look I could tell that the trunk had an electric lock and it seemed to be trying to lock and unlock itself. So I gave it few good slams and it finally closed it, thinking some idiot probably just left it open some how and now the car is having a conniption about it. so I feel like I had just done someone a favor as I headed back to my apartment. then about half way up the stairs I hear it.. a soft almost too faint to hear *click*. No way it cant be that jacked up, i think to myself. I go back down and sure enough its popped itself open again and begun clicking loudly as before. determined to fix the stupid thing I messed with the lock for a few minutes.. after failure and frustration set in I decided to just pull the power connector and walk away.

Now its beautifully quiet and Im going to sleep well tonight. however i feel like the only good thing it did is save the poor guy a dead battery in the morning. his trunk is still wide open. I didn't want to shut it because I cut the power to it which means it might not open again.. (unless he has the key.. lol) and with it being open someone might come steal all the crap out of it. (it was full to the brim with junk.. actually maybe that would be doing him a favor.. who knows)

anyway just thought I would fess up.
