Night Owls Admit Just How Bad They Are At Waking Up In The Morning

[rebelmouse-image 18353098 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

How many times do you have to hit the snooze button until you realize you have a problem with getting up in the morning? For most people it's multiple times because they simply enjoy being night owls and perhaps are more productive at night. So what does it take to get out of bed?

Just_Another_Tiger asks:

Redditors, how many alarms do you have set to wake up in the morning?

When your alarm clock can bark

[rebelmouse-image 18353099 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I set my dog every night before I go to bed. She only has 1 setting 'way too early' and no snooze button. But she's a good girl.

6:45AM versus 9AM

[rebelmouse-image 18353100 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

For some reason waking up for university is 25x harder to wake up for high school.. I need like 5 alarms and they're only a few minutes apart from each other. I need those extra minutes!!!

Pretty shocking how waking up at 6:45 for high school everyday was so easy but I can't even wake up for a 9am twice a week now

When your life is an alarm clock

my kids get me up before the alarm goes off

The neurotic night owl

[rebelmouse-image 18353102 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

1 which I check on multiple times a night to make sure it's on. Then I wake up before it, turn it off, and get up.

How does this work?

[rebelmouse-image 18353103 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

0 - I naturally wake up long before I need to.

When you wake up according to what bus you are taking that day

[rebelmouse-image 18353104 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Current count is 21. Roughly 5 get turned on the night before, and they are then changed throughout the morning as I wake up. The later alarms in each 'chain' can get pushed back when I go "Well, I could catch the x:45 bus and have some downtime, or I could sleep for like an extra 20 minutes and catch the x:15 bus"

It's always easier waking up at the same time every day

[rebelmouse-image 18353106 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just 1 alarm at 6:00am to get ready to go to school

When you give up on alarm clocks

[rebelmouse-image 18353107 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

None. I tell myself the night before what time I want to wake up and I end up waking up around that time. I also have a hard time keeping jobs.

Some people will never understand the struggle

Alarm goes off, get up. What is problem

A good hour of alarms is safe

[rebelmouse-image 18353110 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

5:00 5:15 5:30 5:45 6:00

And still my wife has to pull me out of bed at 6:15.

Alexa must be so annoyed every morning

[rebelmouse-image 18353111 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Let's just say Alexa is taking all sorts of rescheduling information from a half asleep me each morning.

When you calculate just how long you can lay in bed

[rebelmouse-image 18353113 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

3 alarms. They don't stop untill I've done some math problems.

That will do it

[rebelmouse-image 18353114 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

None. I have a baby.

Back off the snooze lovers!

[rebelmouse-image 18353115 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I've never understood hitting snooze - wouldn't you not actually get any more sleep and end up more tired? That being said, I only set 1.

Every ten minutes!

[rebelmouse-image 18353116 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I have one at 6:30, then another one every 10 minutes until 7:40. I always wake up on the last alarm despite the fact that there's a ton before. If I set one alarm at 7:40 I always oversleep. My mornings suck

An extreme case!

[rebelmouse-image 18353117 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Every 5 minutes from 5:30 until 8:00. I have to leave by 7:10 and they keep going in case I over sleep.

When you get violent with your alarm clocks

[rebelmouse-image 18353118 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Two, but they start 45 minutes before I have to get out of bed and go off 5 minutes apart and snooze for 9 minutes each several times during that 45 minutes. Ones my phone, the other an actual alarm clock that gets replaced every three or four months cause I tend to smash the s* out of them.

Mum will do the trick!

[rebelmouse-image 18353119 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

One. Mom is the best alarm clock!

An alarm for every minute of the day!?

[rebelmouse-image 18353121 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I never delete alarms on my phone, usually schedule them to ring every minute for like a half hour, and work a job where I have to wake up at completely random hours.

So I pretty much have an alarm for every minute of the day now.

An earthquake would be perfect

[rebelmouse-image 18353122 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I usually need an earthquake, but sometimes two does just fine.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
