Somebody loves me on here! Thank you!I love ya PI, but IMO, you and your hubby are being petty. It's none of your biz about why this lady would have her door unlocked, but the alarm on. It's her house, she can do as she pleases. Or like others have said, maybe it was an accident, maybe one of her kids unlocked it. Had the alarm not sounded, maybe your son would have seen her having sex, or worse, maybe your son would have hurt himself accidently by playing with a firearm that they didn't have locked up. Maybe (even if they didn't have an alarm), your son could have been attacked by their dog, or, maybe their dog could have ran outside and still be missing. Your son was wrong. You owe them the measly 12 bux for their hearts beating 150 BPM after hearing the alarm sound, seeing the door wide open...etc. No excuses. If your son didn't know better, than he should not be unsupervised.
We are going to just pay it and move on. Its not worth it. Even though I don't think my little boy did anything wrong the whole situation is just silly. His friend admitted he was the one who opened the door but whatever. They have both learned a good lesson.
