I use the alarm on my phone, set to vibrate. Then last week someone phoned me early in the morning! I pressed the "turn alarm off" button, which is the same as the "answer phone button" thinking it was my alarm and it wasn't! I didn't realise until about a minute later when I looked at my phone

A mate told me a rather amusing story about what he did to his alarm clock this morning. It woke him up which he took offence to so he smashed his hand down on the snooze button. A period of time later it beeped again as you'd expect & so he shouted "That wasnt ten minutes you *&$£($" and threw it on the floor at which point it beeped uncontrollably for 10 minutes waking up half the corridor. He's welsh. I think that explains it all.

yeah well this morning i was strategically planning on turning off ONE of the alarm clocks and as i was doing it it fell on the floor! alarm-ing away! nothing is more annoying that to have an alarm clock going off and you being unable to turn it off!

Exactly! Just think of those poor l;ittle alarm clocks. They get shouted at if they do go off and shouted at if they don't. They can't win!

This morning, I woke up to my alarm. Semi-conscious, I thought: "what's that noise? Oh, I recognise it, it's my alarm". So I turn my alarm off.

"Ah, silence - I can sleep now".

Three quarters of an hour later I wake up and realise I'm late for my tutorial. :mad:

I wake up at 7:15 every morning to Tony and Sam at breakfast on Valley's Radio So It's not so bad.

Except on Saturaday morning when I forget to unset it and it wakes me up 6 hours to early

i love the snooze button... i set off my alarm about 10 mins before im planning on getting up so that i can really appreciate those last 10 mins in my bed before i have to get up lol... but i usually am half awake before my alarm goes off anyway! the vibrate always scares me tho!

I use me phone but even without that horrible beeping and vibrating combined it sometimes fails to wake me up properly. Sometimes I put the phone the other side of the room til eventually it wakes me up and I have to stagger out of bed to stop its incessent noise!
