UGH I was super tired this morning and didn't want to wake up. When I finally got up and went to brush my teeth, I realized my smoke detector is doing the _super_ annoying, infrequent-yet-high-pitched squeak/shriek that means it needs a new battery.
It was probably squeaking for hours, disturbing my sleep but not enough
to wake me up, which is why I feel like I didn't get any sleep :( Why
didn't the damn thing just sound the alarm when it needed a new battery,
like a normal smoke detector?
b) I know exactly when I replaced the
battery - when I moved in on August 1st. It's only been 3 and a half
months, and normally the battery should be replaced every 6 months,
right? So it's unusual to have to replace it so quickly?
All signs are leaning towards buying a new smoke detector, and a caffeine-fueled day.
