10+1 reasons why alarm clocks aren’t good for you

3183362-old-fashion-alarm-clock-ringing-shaking-and-jumping-like-mad
 1.      #economic crisis
Because every time you break an alarm clock while trying to shut it off means, besides having to get up, having to go and buy a new one. And that costs money. And who’s got that to spare?
 
2.      #painful
Because it hurts when someone throws it at you – accidentally or intentionally.
 
3.      #snooze
Because snoozing alarm clocks doesn’t really help. It makes you sleep less and annoys you even more. So in the end you wake up unnaturally tired. And irritated.
 
4.      #frightening
Because the sudden beeping, ringing, or whatever it is your alarm clock does, disrupts your natural (often peaceful) sleep pattern to the extent that you may even risk a heart attack from the scare!
 
5.      #hide_and_seek
Because nowadays phones are used as alarm clocks. How many times do you wake up trying to find where you hid your phone in an attempt to muffle its sound? You’re already late! Who has time for games?
 
6.      #ringing_in_ears
Because in your sleep you can’t often distinguish between the alarm ringing or someone calling, resulting in a list of unanswered calls you’ve snoozed. It’s even worse if you try to answer the alarm clock instead of the phone!
 
7.      #embarrassing
Because alarm sounds nowadays are so similar that you may wake up at dawn, thinking that someone is stealing your car and rush out in your pyjamas (if you’re wearing any) to check. Really?
 
8.      #company
Because wouldn’t you rather be woken up sweetly, with a tender kiss or a lick in the face? Get a companion, a partner, a pet. In the long term it’ll also be there when you’re not asleep!
 
9.      #disruption_social_relations
Because what if you’re trying to sleep on your day off and your roommate/neighbour’s alarm clock is right on time (as usual) and wakes you up too? Is it really worth the row with your roommate/neighbour? Again?
 
10.   #no_sense
Because alarm clocks have no sense of time. 7:00 is either am or pm depending on a dot. Seriously? Can you afford to lose your beauty sleep over that?
 
And finally:
 
11.   #lazy_is_not_an_option
Because alarm clocks remind you there is something you need to do…

    MC’s Whispers list on alarm clocks is so entertaining I had to share it on my blog. Surely everyone who sets an alarm would identify with not less than three of the items on this list.
