I did talk to my landlord about the parking garage across the street. They talked to the people and they agreed to stop setting off the alarm after ten, and shortened it to 3 seconds.  I’m pretty sure they turned it down too because it’s a lot softer than it used to be.

Not a perfect solution by any means, but it makes it bearable which it definitely wasn’t before. Like all compromises, I’m sure neither side is really happy with it.

To be perfectly honest, it’s a lot better than the gigantic middle finger I expected to get in response to my complaint, so that’s something.
