So much hate.

Specifically, for smoke detectors with low batteries that cheerfully remind you every few minutes that the battery is, in fact, low via a loud beep and an informative message of "low battery". Particularly since this species can only be changed by the maintenance people for my apartment complex, as opposed to being sensibly easy to plunk a battery out and a new one in.

Thrice has maintenance been called. Thrice have they assured me they were on their way momentarily.

Thrice have they apparently lied.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. Such hate.
