Stern related because I'm home snowbound and bored. Do your machines beep at you? I'm sick of it. My washing machines beeps when its done a cycle. My dryer beeps. My dishwasher literally will beep five cycles of five beeps to tell me it's finished. My oven beeps when it's fully heated. My toaster beeps when the toast is ready. My microwave beeps. My coffee machine beeps. My smoke alarms beep. My TV beeps when you turn it on, and again when you turn it off. WHY DOES EVERYTHING BEEP?! Who asked for all of this beeping?
