what grinds my gears

So when I feel like sitting in the library all day, I always get annoyed by someone booting up his laptop with the startup sound blasting full volume through the room. This doesn't happen one time in a workday, no this phenomena averages around 5 times a day. So you might think, what is the big deal here Garret? Stop complaining about stuff like that, who sits in the library all day anyway!? Well, it isn't so much the sound that bothers me, I just can't grasp why both Apple and Microsoft have the annoying startup sound enabled by default. Why would someone need to be reminded that he or she just pushed the ON button 20 secs ago? It doesn't even tell you the computer is ready to use anyway(at least for windows that is), because the desktop will still need another minute or so to become responsive. And that is what really grinds my gears.
Thank you for reading, next message will probably contain more happy thoughts and less grumpiness. Feel free to comment on this matter, I look forward to it.

  6. You make a good point, sir. What I would do at least is plug in my headset just so I wouldn't disturb others around me.
