I wish I didn't have someone to blame for this. My wife is 7 months pregnant. I calmly told her I had to go when she told me. I didn't want myself to get angry with her. The wrath of a pregnant women is severe - I suspect I would've seen some of those LV and Gucci bags on the next CC statement if I would've lost it!
If the chain rub across the sensors, it would have went off had she turn the sensors on. Maybe that would have lessen the damage some what if she stop when it started beeping, but either way, the damage is done.
You did not tell us your wife is 7 months pregnant, her hormones are probably all over the place. Smart move backing off, there is one argument you can never win.
