Set my alarm for 20 mins before I need to get up. Then 2x10min snoozes and then I’m out of bed

alarm set at 7, I get out of bed at 8:25


Usually awake before the alarm goes off, but refuse to budge until it does go off. There’s a 20-minute cup of tea allowance built into my morning routine, so I sometimes use that for a bit extra in bed depending on how I feel.


Usually 1x10 min snooze then…


Love all these contingency plans people have :smiley:


There’s always a cup of tea waiting on my desk when I get in, so it’s no major disaster if I don’t have a cup immediately after getting up.

Think that goes beyond maxing out the snoozes, man! The maximum I could allow is 3 x 10min snoozes.

i’ll change my vote

Used to be rubbish at getting up, if it was really important to be up I’d set a second alarm at the other side of the room.


Yep same, just a boring conformo who gets up when the man tells me to now.

Only takes one alarm even if drunk. Body has a frustrating tendency to wake itself up about three minutes before my alarm when I’m sober with reliable regularity.


Used to have 6 music as my alarm set to go off at 8 and I’d quite often keep hitting snooze until the breakfast show finished.


Would definitely get me up (to smash my radio)

Nothing worse than sleeping next to a maximum snoozer. Have had full blown arguments about this.


wonder what I am doing wrong sleep wise, when I wake up its like I am in physical pain and the thought of getting up is inconceivable, takes me that long to adjust, wonder if it is diet or something. I’ve got lightbulbs that come on slowly that help a bit

The tv has made me late a couple times recently :disappointed:

My flatmate is fully capable of using the ten minute snooze on his iphone alarm for an entire day


Generally find the getting ready routine when one half is up before the other to be one of the most contentious points of my relationships. Think there’s a whole thread of complaints to be had.
