Today, I heard a loud beep for over an hour. It didn't come from my phone or even an alarm of some sort. It was my son pretending to be a smoke alarm. FML

Suicidal_Divide tells us more.

OP here. I really didn't think this would be posted. So here is a little background on what was going on. First off, my son is 9 years old and Autistic, he is higher fuctioning but does still does repetative (and sometimes annoying) things. This does not mean I love him any less he is still my baby. He started the beeping because his grandpa came home and settled in without going in an saying Hi, so he hid under a blanket in the entry hall and announced himself by beeping loudly. While this wasn't the best way of trying to get anyones attention, it happened. While it started out cute, it did get annoying after a bit, but I also knew that he would stop as soon as he got tired of his "game". Not everyone would put up with the beeping as long as I did, but he was not hurting anything so I decided to let my son have his fun since he was not hurting anything.

My smoke alarm goes off when I make toast. How's that for annoying? O.O

You must take your coffee AND your toast black :P

#18, try cleaning out the crumbs in the bottom! OP get that kid into skateboarding, he'll burn off that extra energy.

I never burn my food, my smoke alarms are just super sensitive and they go off when I cook almost anything. The worst part is that they go off in every room too.

I think its time to pull the batteries on the smoke alarms.. that would drive me nuts!

LOL they're also wired into the house, not battery powered. I'm pretty much screwed.

Might want to get that looked at

Its just a kid thing. I babysit a kid who makes a beeping sound every ~20 seconds ever since iv known him.

I suppose that one would have flown over your head if #4 didn't put the quotation marks for you :)

My thoughts exactly, i mean who ignores an alarm for an hour?

It might be indicative of him producing dangerous levels of methane.

Idk haha i find most things kids do adorable

It Actually IS really adorable. #8

Hahahahaha kids are so much fun, aren't they?

Contrary to what you said, I guess that would actually make it an alarm of some sort.

At least he could always fall back on being a pro smoke alarm.
