While we are on the subject of alarms/biongs/bleeps/klaxtons.
Does anyone listen to them???????????
I'm sorry but everytime I open a car door, do I need a Beep-Beep to tell me I've just opened a car door? I sit in the seat, Bong Bong, yes I know, SHUT UP. Give me 2 seconds to put the belt on.
After a while all these beeps and flashing lights make us immune to them.
I used to wake up when pumps went off at night or something sounded 'funny'.
Having a fridge alarm go off while you're standing in it still baffles me,what do you want me to do? Lock myself in???? Thats just a 2C degree drop, not the Moon plummetting.
Ok, in the Engineroom a flashing light is needed when you've got ear defenders on but 99% of the time its all B/S.
What you want is a big RED
flashing light and a klaxon shouting "This is going to hurt"
Then, and only then, do these bloody Beep Beeps make sense.
