Author Notes

1/27/2022, 1:10 PM Speaking as somebody who's sensitive to loud noises, carbon monoxide/smoke detector low battery beeps seriously stress me out. And the unending beeping following a battery change has definitely happened before.

Unrelated, I don't think I've ever set another strip in the Yellow Room.

3/31/2022, 7:47 AM I feel this. The smoke detector battery began to die the other day. It was a loud chirp every minute. Even with a chair I am not tall enough to reach it. I really did want to take a sledgehammer to it
3/31/2022, 9:59 AM God none of the smoke detectors in my parents' place are in easy to reach locations either. Every time the smoke alarm in my old bedroom went off (and for a few years before we flat out replaced them this would be like once every seven or eight months, and always at night), my dad would have to haul a ladder upstairs just to replace the batteries.
3/31/2022, 11:15 AM Supposedly there's a button you can press to silence them. I tried that, and it turns out it only silences if you take the battery out first. It silences the back-up battery, not the dead one. So, the ol' broomstick wasn't helpful, still had to figure out how to reach it. I ripped it out of the ceiling :)
12/27/2022, 10:37 PM God this used to happen all the time in the old apartment I lived in 💀
12/27/2022, 10:38 PM GOD that had to have been annoying...
