58 how could you possibly know that OP complains too much? seeing as this is probably OPs first FML. OP is obviously pissed because his/her life was not in danger but she was forced to stand I'm the rain. I'm pretty sure that the alarm makes two different noises and OPs mom didn't know the difference. That's why OP is pissed so don't act like you would be all happy about it if it happened to you.
that was really caring of the mother..she potentially risked her own life by staying inside the house to see what was wrong...had there been a carbon monoxide leak..it cud have been fatal but she wud have saved her daughters life..be thankful to God u have such a selfless mother n stop complaining about harmless rain u spoilt brat!!!!!

Why the fuck do you have a carbon monoxide detector in the house? Where could the fumes possibly come from? Either your mum runs an hose from your cars exhaust into the house? or you live near a factory? in which case going outside wouldn't help, and most factories only produce carbon dioxide...
Do you seriously believe carbon monoxide only comes from cars or factories? You should read a book before you open your mouth, trying to make OP look dumb, because you look like an idiot right now. CO can come from combustion in which there is not enough oxygen to produce CO2... such as a stove. Please go take a chemistry class before you try to pretend you know everything.
No idiot. did you do chemistry at school? burning wood does not produce carbon monoxide. It produces carbon dioxide. The only time burning organic matter produces carbon monoxide is if it's burnt with a lack of oxygen. So a open fire will not produce carbon monoxide. Burning charcoal does not produce carbon monoxide unless burnt in a lack of oxygen either. ( Not enough oxygen molecules available to fully produce dioxide) Burning fuel (cars, generators etc does produce carbon monoxide! and so generator does fall under the category of vehicle because it combusts fuel) Maybe you shoul have done chemistry at school bro
Before you call people idiots it might help to get your facts straight. In a perfect textbook situation you are (partly) right. But in practice almost every fire produces small amounts of carbon monoxide simply because no fire burns perfectly. Poor ventilation around a fire quickly makes the percentage of carbon monoxide rise thus creating a dangerous situation. So when burning things (any type of fuel) inside a detector is useful.
Ok so you agree it's safe to say that an outdoor fire will produce next to no CO, and if there was an outdoor fire, there is no point in going outside, and if it was an indoor fire in a fire place like ours, with a glass door, the fumes go out the chimney anyway. Unless it was a open fire (no door) there could be CO produced, but who has a fire on in the summer (OP is from US.)
Docbastard - You have them to avoid litigation as punitives are more likely to destroy companies and lives than carbon emissions are. As a side note your profile states you may hate people for commenting on pictures, yet, you may comment because you just hate their face. Isn't that commenting on a pictute?
Wow OP, you're right... how inconsiderate of your mother to not take what could of been crucial minutes for your life and hers to check if the battery was just low... OP, stfu and be glad you have a mother that understands when that alarm goes off you get out the house for your lives sake...
Better safe than sorry
why did she stay inside if she was like "your gonna diee" ...
