I think years of hearing the “trash emptying” and also the Microsoft Office chime have made it so that my brain feels relief upon hearing them. Thus, when I’m denied this feeling my brain goes nuts until I hear it. Unfortunately, it usually requires a restart, especially for the trash related one. Granted my computer is quite fast and restarting doesn’t take that long, but it’s still kind of a pain in the butt since it’s not technically such a big deal.

Oh well, guess I’m going to restart now.
