I've noticed there's a lot of beeping going on in this modern age.
I live in a very texting-heavy culture these days, so my phone beeps at me many times per day to indicate I've received a text.
Each room in my house has a wall-mounted air conditioner that beeps when I turn it on or off, change the temperature or fan speed.
Even my washing machine beeps melodiously throughout the wash to indicate when it moves from wash to spin to rinse, then when it's done. It sounds like I've loaded my clothes into R2D2, who then proceeds to give me beeping updates on the status of my clothing. Does it really need to do that? Can't it just beep once when it's done?
I personally do not like beeping, it's distracting and I don't like random noises.
This is just one of the many reasons why I love using a paper planner. It doesn't beep at me. It doesn't add to the auditory overload I already feel on any given day. It's not demanding. It's just there when I need it.
Do you get annoyed by beeps too? Or do you rely on beeps to remind you of things you would otherwise forget?
