Alarm clocks – just 5 more minutes

My alarm clock collection – just give me 5 more minutes!
Tomorrow I have to get out earlier than I´m used to, so I guess to post some images of my “friends” who will wake me up is more than appropriate. No honestly only the yellow Remington Rperry does his job right now.
Why?
– The Mebus alarm clock works fine, the tick-tack isn´t a real problem. More the task to wind him up once a day is a difficult one for me.
– The Krups would have been my choice, he is cool has a well done snooze trigger (just hit him). But he gets somehow quite noisy after a while a real “brrrrrrmmmm”.
– The Remington Sperry has got a illumination and an absolute annoying ring tone, and he will not stop to ring until you hit him. He wont stop until he dies so better you switch him off before you go on holiday.  The bad thing is the snooze and the stop button are next to each other. No way I would hit the right one, so I always make sure I hit both.
He is compared to the Krups ultra silent. The Instruction of the backside is amazing, they even tell you to hit him in case of a malfunction. A great detail.

To backup all of them for sure there is the mobile phone also doing his service.

    Hilarious – having just started my new job (following a year and a half spent travelling and taking it easy) I’m already hitting the snooze button! Whilst away I was always up early, now, I struggle to get up.

    I think that working for living is bad for my health!

    Hi Craig, on the weekends I wake up even before an alarm clock would go off (i do not set one) and within the week I´m hitting the snooze button. I think I need a recalibration.

      I know exactly what you mean, my wife and I do the same thing. Only this morning we were speaking about having a lie in on Saturday – no doubt we’ll be waking even earlier!
