Letting It Do Its Thing

with 7 comments

Actually, I have a second carbon monoxide detector plugged in elsewhere, but I’ve been waiting for the old one’s battery to just die out. Let me tell you, those warnings LIE. As of writing this post [10/13/08], some two weeks later, the thing is buried deep in my closet and still beeping. Hm, that warrants repeating: still beeping. Low battery, my ass!

Well, I’m stubborn enough now to just wait it out…

REMINDER: I’m posting TWO comics a day until the week is over. Check below for an earlier comic!

I lived in lies all my life,
And I’ve been living here for a long, long time,
And I know its been coming down a while now,
When it shows, then you get me on the dial,
But right now you’re half way around the world,
Maybe I’ll see better days, but I’m not so sure I will.

  1. Hmmm, well it beeps, but it is barely noticeable unless you are listening for it. It kind of melds together well with the pipes banging. A symphony of some sort, I’d say.

  3. Ohhh well when it was beeping, the battery light is going on–and the other alarm makes no noise.

    Trust me, I was wondering the same thing, I wanted to see it just to make sure it WAS the battery :p

  5. Are you worried about Carbon Monoxide poisoning? Is that what is killing off all the geriatrics in your apartment complex.

  6. Nah, I’m not worried. I always get by…

  7. I’m not sure I understand the whole, it’s out of battery instead of “it’s warning you that there is a carbon monoxide issue”…but more importantly, HOW CAN YOU STAND THE BEEPING!?!

    If there is such a thing as hell, mine will be a carbon monoxide and/or fire alarm going off constantly…
