Why everyone hates my coffee maker
There is nothing wrong with my electric coffee maker. It brews coffee just fine, but it makes a beeping noise when it's done brewing or when it's shutting off. For anyone who regularly wears a pager, or the spouse of someone who does, a beeping sound means being woken up in the middle of the night. It means a nice time together is suddenly ending. Without being able to help it, when you hear something that sounds like a pager, your heart starts to beat faster, you get this sinking feeling, and you know that you are going to have to change whatever loose plans that you had.
Needless to say, to make coffee I mostly use a french press and our kettle - which make a clicking sound.
People have babies at the most inconvenient times. Ah well.

I hold no responsibility - we bought the coffee maker off your wedding registry and assumed all research had been been done on said coffee machine's beeps, grinds, whistles, and chugalugs.
I've always used a French press myself, so I don't blame you. :-)
hahaha... no worries. Thank you again for it.
I think the coffee maker still makes better coffee than I do using the french press. I think that I just need to figure out a way to stop it beeping. Perhaps attaching an "ahhh-Oooohh-GA!" horn to it. You know, something nice and relaxing. ;-)
If it's made in Mexico, there's probably a toggle switch on the bottom for that.
