Fire alarm batteries

Fire alarm batteries make a loud beeping sound when they’re low.

I don’t know what it is about the batteries of my fire alarm – but these beeps exclusively happen in the middle of the night.

These beeps are impossible to ignore. So, the only way out is to wake up, figure out the source of the sound (this can be surprisingly challenging in the middle of the night), drag a chair for elevation, and take the battery out.

I can choose to be upset or annoyed. It won’t change the facts. The battery still needs to be replaced.

I can also choose to just chuckle at my luck. And just try to get back to sleep.

Either way, the nature of the job doesn’t change. It isn’t good or bad – the only difference is my attitude toward it.

Like most things in this life.
