Imagine if you will, its 11:00 PM on Sunday night. You have a very important business meeting first thing in the morning. You are about to doze off to catch up on some much needed sleep and then all of a sudden you hear "TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT."

Well that's what residents in Everett, Washington experienced on Sunday night when a tug boat horn got stuck in the on position.

Some residents took to a local radio station's Facebook page and said the the horn went off for hours. One resident even took video of the situation, saying that it went off from about 11:00 PM to 3:30 AM.

According to KCBY:

With record heat that had temperatures well into the upper 80's only a few hours earlier, residents were faced with a choice in their likely non-air-conditioned homes and apartments: Open the windows and suffer the noise, or close the windows and suffer the heat.
