Does that Really Need an Alarm? 

Often times I think that certain product manufactures have an inflated idea of exactly how important their product is. This morning at work, I went into the bathroom and was doing my thing, when all of a sudden I hear this loud buzzing alarming beep. Of all the times you want to hear something like that, standing at the urinal is not one of them. A few seconds later, there it is again. Jesus, what on Earth could that be for?!

After I finished, I turned around to see this rather large box near the ceiling, which was the source of the alarm. There is a little red light flashing that says "Refill". The bathroom air freshener needed to be refilled? That deserves a buzzing alarm? Here I figured a smoke detector had a dying battery, or a carbon monoxide alarm was going off. Maybe the bathroom was in imminent danger of flooding. But no, they're right, this is far worse. Stop everything! Hurry and go get a refill - stat!

Ummmmm....no offense, but I've walked by plenty of men's bathrooms that smelled terrible....every men's bathroom should have alarms for the air freshner!! =D

you should probably count your blessings you weren't going number two when the alarm went off-- that could make for a messy surprise.
