My apartment complex was designed by idiots. There is a smoke detector literally less than 5 feet away from the stove that is so sensitive that any heat wave (say, opening the oven) can potentially set off its ridiculous piercing shriek of doom. Who thought that was a good idea?
Also, they put the phone jack (for internet) in the bedroom. Because, ya know, I totally want to take up end-table space with a router.
