Shut the Beep up!

If I live through this evening, I will be suprised. Actually, if this piece of sh*t makes it through the evening... I will be suprised. Now, I know these things are supposed to protect us from fires, but I have 3 within my 600 square foot apartment all working fine, except for this one. This one, I am assuming, is on it's way do death, sending out a high tone beep every 30 seconds. Every 30 seconds. Every. 30. Seconds.

Now this is not news to me, as this has been happening on and off for the past 2 weeks, but only lasting a short period of time. Now, I believe that this has been beeping for the past 24 hours. And with it being on my vaulted ceiling, approximately 13 feet high, I am not able to reach it... even if I stand on a stool. There is no one in the apartment building office to help me... I will just have to live with it for the evening... and try to sleep through it, for the second night in a row.

My evening will consist of cleaning, packing, and baking some goodies to take with me to the twin cities tomorrow evening. I can't wait for the weekend! My sister and her hubby are having a house warming party saturday night ... with a theme: Ugly Christmas Sweater Party! I am so pumped. We have quite a few cousins that already live in the cities and a couple of us coming from ND. I just hope for good travel weather!

If I don't post tomorrow... have a wonderful weekend a check back for great pictures on Sunday!

simple solution.. those things have a little cell.. just plug it out.

one alarm not workin wont kill you.. but one beeping sure will!

Joe said...

Have you tried replacing the batteries in that thing? I think the beeping might be a low battery warning. That's what mine does when the batteries are low.

IronGambit said...

omg that sucks!!! I've had that problem before but I could reach it! Good luck!

J~mom said...

Ours also do that when the batteries are low. Why they always choose the middle of the night to start I don't know. Hope you got some sleep!

Neese said...

LOL!!! bless your heart! man, you need a shotgun!

Annette said...

I hate it when smoke alarms get sassy! So annoying! (Especially in the middle of the night.)

I'm cracking up about the ugly Christmas sweater theme. Too funny!

Nicole said...

Hope the beeping is gone. Have fun at the party.

I feel for you. There was an air freshner at the office where I used to work, that only the janitor could get to, that would beep when the canister was empty...drove me CRAZY and it always took forever for the guy to get to it!
Have fun at the party...sounds like a great theme!
Take Care

Do you have a broom? you coulprobably smack it with a broom handle and maybe even push the reset button.

Reminds me of that episode of "Friends" when Phoebe has the sae problem and she tris to get rid of it by shoing it down te garbage shute.

Danielle said...

Oh, I hope it got figured out!

Mendy said...

Damn. Jess beat me to it. I was gonna mention the friends episode too. Love it.

I had that happen one night and, I think in my PJ's went to get batteries for it. I couldn't stand it!
