How not to wake up on your day off...

I looked at the time. Too early, don't have to get up just yet. Fall asleep and... a microsecond later the door intercom thing wakes me up, buzzing impatiently. I go to answer it and there is this black and white figure on the little screen "OPEN! IT'S THE POLICE!" so I open, thinking 'oh, no; so they've finally caught up with me! But, wait a minute, what have I done this time? Is it the parking permit? Did I leave the car on a yellow line? Those two movies I downloaded once from the torrents? Damn you, Captain James T Kirk...

So I put my trousers on, drag a brush across my hair and wait. And wait. Eventually I ventured out in the cold corridor when I saw a police woman coming out of one of the other flats and asked her what was going on. 'Somebody was seen acting suspiciously on your balcony'. Erm, I don't have a balcony. Oh, she's pointing up; she means the roof top of the building. 'Probably a false alarm', she says, smiling. Yes. Thanks.
