Meet the new microwave -- not quite the same as the old microwave

The microwave started making noises. Not alarming noises or ignorable noises, but noises calculated to arouse feelings of unease with a 1000 watt electrical device. So we got a new one.

And the new one turns out to be passive aggressive.

If you don't retrieve your food within a minute or so, it beeps at you to remind you that you forgot some food in there, and why don't you take it already? Did I do that all for nothing? I live to serve and all, but the least you could do is pay some attention to what I've done just for you.
