    An Alarm I Don't Hate

    I just bought this cool alarm called Lark. It'a silent alarm that wakes you silently through a vibration. At night you wear this comfortable bracelet and set an alarm through the app on the iPhone. While you sleep, the bracelet tracks how long you slept, how long it took to fall...

    I Don't Use Them:

    I have a habit of getting up early. But, still I used to set alarm-press the snooze but usually got up on time. I happened to attend a seminar in which the speaker said this: " Why do you want to start your day by being alarmed...?" That's it. I didn't hear a...

    Unreliable Moments In Time

    Why do they always wake me up when i'm asleep? I don't have one so rely on the sun, luck and the noise of the neighbours. I am late for work sometimes because of this.

    Snooze...

    I cannot stand the blaring of any kind of alarm. My almost-husband, however, thinks he requires at least an hour and a half's notice before he has to get up.  Alarm #1:  5:53AM.  Beep, beep, beep... Alarm #2:  6:01AM  "And in local news, a young...

    So Much...

    ...that I have learned to ignore them. Blocked them, so to speak. In turn - they yell at me across the room, like a nagging spouse. "Get up!! Wake UP! You are going to be LATE!! Get UP! Wake UP!!" Geez...don't they know that I am tired? Give it a rest...

    Yeah, it's not much better than using an alarm clock.

    Back To School!

    I've never been the type to sleep in. This summer my 2 year old son has started sleeping a little later though, which means I get to also. We used to get up between 7-7:30 on average. The past month or so I've been able to sleep until 8:30-9:30 and it's been wonderful.So now it's...

    It Isn't the Clock Itself

    The clock itself is fine.  It's the alarm, breaking my slumber's peace to shout it's profane obligation at me each morning!  I love novelty clocks, though!  They make me handle alarms a bit better, but I'm having tougher times finding them.

    RINGADINGDING

    I hate alarm clocks but thanks to my EP guy I always get up on time. My EP friends call me and tell me what day of the week it is and what time it is.  I love talking to them early in the morning before I officially begin my day.  No alarm clocks for fungirlmmm.  ...

    A Different Reason to Hate Alarm Clocks.....

    The Reason.....they are unreliable pieces of crap. My bit on Alarm Clocks is unique in that I don't hate them because they DO work, but because they don't.....cheap overseas made pieces of crap they are! This year, I'm on my 5th Alarm Clock for the year, some un-branded thing I...

    I Hate Them A Lot

    I used to have an alarm clock years ago.. but I really hate the sound it makes... I'm already really grumpy in the mornings and an  alarm just makes it worse. So now I get my mum to wake me up in the mornings instead haha

    Well...

    I don't really hate them, I just don't pay much attention to them. That has led me to be late for work several times lately. We rotate the shifts, and when you have to open the store, you have to wake up before 5 am. I didn't have trouble when I first got the job, but now it's...

    Tears

    I've no idea how to shut it up. It gets louder the longer you leave it. I actually nearly burst into tears this morning because of it. I hit the snooze button, it came back on again. Then I hit the button that in theiry is the one to shut it up ( as it had turned on again), it...

    WHAT Are They Good For?

    The guy or woman that came up with this idea should have been shot. Has a sundial ever woke you up? If it were not for alarm clocks then we could all sleep late. That is unless you are a morning person and then you never need a alarm clock anyway. Yall have a nice day, and...

    They Screw Up My Entire Day

    I hate them. Period. Mornings are miserable enough without one of those crazy things blasting in my ear.  But if I must have one, then I have got to be able to press the snooze button at least twice before I get up or else I'm crabby all day.
