    Gosh, Im glad that I dont get that urge. Although, there is NOTHING more rude then a pager going off at *whatever* god awful time in the morning-- I'll just be thankful from here on out that it WASNT my smoke detector.

    And thanks for the reminder. I make a point to change the batteries when I set the clocks back and forth for daylight savings, but I think that a lot of people forget they even have them, until they need/ needed it!

    Never had that urge, but I have had flashbacks of kicking in doors and crawling around on the floor doing a blind search through a building while a smoke alarm is going off. :D

    I assume you also get a call to make sure you actually has received the SMS (and to wake you up if asleep)?
