You know...it's for your own good
My issue with the whole design of this device is how something retailing at $14.95 can consistently run out of backup battery power and emit it's warning sounds ALWAYS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT WHEN PEOPLE ARE SLEEPING! Does it happen at 6 pm when you arrive home from work and have a chance to go get another battery? No. Does it happen at 10 am on Saturday morning when you have the ladder out anyway and doing other fix-it projects? No. It happens in the middle of the night. Every time. I don't know. I'm getting tired with the issues around this place.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: I am finishing this posting on behalf of our Executive Director as he was so frustrated with this subject, he contacted the FTI Medical Staff and requested an extra dispensation of our own FTI sedative. Normally, he only takes one per day in order to remain lucid while dealing with the staff and his initial request was rejected due to safety reasons. Upon further analysis by the FTI medical staff and in conjunction with this incident, it was decided it would be better to risk a possible over-dispensation and retain his services than to have him resign his post. Prior to his accepting this position, we had a vacancy for 5 years. You think this stuff is odd? You should have seen some of our results then. )
