Finally, I decided to bring it up to a customer one day, because she must have had the damn thing right by her head. It did not go well.
Me: "Heh, I hear a lot of beeping noises, sounds like you might have a low battery in your smoke detector."
Me: "Oh, just noticed that I keep hearing a loud beeping over the phone every minute or so."
Customer (to someone else): "HEY! WHY THE HELL YOU PUT A SMOKE DETECTOR APPUHCASHUN ON MAH FOAM!"
Me (confused as hell): "Ummmmm...not on your phone...I mean the smoke detector in your house."
Customer: "Look heah! I ain't pootah lituht (computer literate), and I ain't know what the hell you means!"
Me: "Oh, I wasn't talking about your computer... Smoke detectors in your house beep to let you know that they have a low battery. Just noticed the beeping is all. Sorry to bring it up."
Customer (to someone else again): "This mufucka keep talkin bout some detectin gots a low battray! Whatchoo do wif mah foam chargah?!"
Thankfully the call dropped. It could have taken a while to wrap up that conversation.
Thought I'd share. :)
Peace, love, and 9-volt batteries,
