Eric Bergeson: Where would we be without beepers?
This season of gratitude, I am thankful for beepers. Where would we be without them?
The alarm beeps to get us out of bed. Otherwise, we might sleep all day.
The washer beeps to remind us to put the clothes in the dryer. The dryer beeps to remind us to fold.
Recent dryers are more persistent. If you don’t get there right away, they will beep again in five minutes.
“Fold the clothes now or they will wrinkle!” the beeper says.
