Microwaves... - July 1st 2010, 04:56 AM

Does anyone else have to stop the microwave on 1 second every time? If the thing beeps I seriously feel like knocking someones head off... I'm not sure why. My boyfriend makes fun of me but stops it for me now cuz he knows it makes me crazy lol...

I've never really thought about it, but now that you bring it up, i have always stopped the microwave before it beeps lol. I think most everyone in my family does that, though so I probably picked it up from them.

I do stop it before it deeps because I hate that sound, I never really thought it was weird or anything.

Yay, I'm not the only one! Everybody thinks I'm crazy for it. Some of them even speed up the timer so it beeps before I can get to it... Needless to say, they're the ones I hit lol.

I stop the microwave like one second to.
It doesn't bother me too terribly bad though if it goes off.

I usually just let it beep (which doesn't really bother me), but if I'm the only one up, then I'll usually stop it before that.

Yeh I always open it before it beeps.
Mine is just way too loud, and it beeps three times in a row.
So it's like
beep
BEEP
BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP

Just very pointless.

h mine does that to... But if you don't open it, it will wait and do it again in a louder tone ... It does that until you open it.

I'm similar, except for me, it's 3. I stop it on 3 and only 3. But I have to set it on a number ending in 3, 6 or 9. Unless it's soup or a liquid. If it's a liquid, or a liquid-like substance, I have to heat it on a number ending in 3. Pizza always gets heated with the second or third digit being 9. Everything else, it doesn't really matter if it's 3, 6 or 9.

lol sometimes i leave it and my microwave beeps every 10 minutes if u dont get it right away but i try to stop it the sound does really piss me off lol


The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
PM me if you need to talk about ANYTHING.

I stop it before the beep.

I also stop my alarm before it goes off, I always wake up naturally a few minutes before it is set to go off and stop it before it does...
If I don't set my alarm I am usually late even though the alarm never wakes me up, I think the thought of the alarm going off wakes me up.

Re: Microwaves... - July 8th 2010, 05:41 PM

i dont have a microwave but i know how it would feel like...i heard it before.
thats temper and holding on before something knocks your nerves out,not addiction..
i handle any kinds of beeps or sounds actually,i think. i handled it before.
with time,things could make anyone nervous. so i say its normal. milions of other people do the same.


I moved back while
my head was turned.

Upside down
closer to the end.

Afraid of the dark
within future times.

I'm drowning there,
my final chase.
