Why was the alarm at the old woman's house so “inconvenient”?
The alarm interrupted the firemen's card game.
In most cases, protocol dictates that occupants are taken away from their home before firemen start the fire.
Usually, firemen are given an agenda for the day and the call to the old woman's house was unexpected.
Most of the firemen were taking a sick day or were on vacation.
The alarm woke all the firemen up; they were all sleeping soundly.
