Beeping Rant

Today's pointless rant brought to you by idiotic design feature #259: the beeping machine.

I don't know about you, but I'd actually prefer my food to go cold and my clothes moldy than be beeped at fucking incessantly by machines which have finished their task.

If I do not immediately retrieve my clothes or food from a beeping machine, it is because I am busy with something else, and cannot do so. Also, I'm perfectly capable of turning the knob on the stove timer if I'm really sure I need a reminder about something.

All I want is blissful silence, free of beeping, as I go about my household tasks. Surely, surely, it is actually more dangerous for me to angrily bang open lids/doors with an elbow and leave them gaping in order to make the fucking beeping stop while I finish my other task, than it is to have cold food or smelly clothes. I'm more likely to hit my head on an open door than I am to forget to hang my clothes or eat my dinner.

Seriously, who designed that feature, and why can it not be turned off?
