Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.
We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.
Redditor Toothpiicxxk asked:
"What's the worst reason you woke up?"
These truly are the worst.
We love our pets, but sometimes not so much.
"My cat was throwing up right next to me."
"She brought you breakfast how cute."
Some horrible news hits you.
"Being woken up to be told someone you know died certainly qualifies."
2018 false missile alert.
"I live in Hawaii, that time we got the missile scare."
"Oof at least it wasn't real but I would have definitely panicked if that was me."
"What were you supposed to do? Go outside and witness your annihilation?"
"I seriously loathe roaches and there's no other way to ensure its death than a brutal one."
Screams in the night.
"Well that was lucky. Imagine what would have happened if you had found it..."
"Hopefully a fox, coyote, cat, or cougar."
"Being clearly asleep, and then someone wakes you to ask, 'Are you asleep?'"
"Bruh my mom be like [this]."
"The only correct answer to this question is 'yes.'"
"We've learned what does and doesn't work for waking me up in a medical emergency."
Something so relatable.
"My alarm rung. It's a daily struggle."
We've all been there.
In fact, we should be waking up naturally with our own personal sleeping patterns.
We all know that's easier said than done.
Can't swerve around what you don't see, ya know?

"What professions are severely underpaid?"
Here were some of those answers.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.
People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,
"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
Oh, I don't have to imagine it.
I've seen it!
Sounds like Netflix needs to get its hands on Yakima, a new show to go against Ozark.
"I remember a story..."
"A run-down town..."
I am writing this from right nearby actually, and I can smell it from here.
"Small town almost entirely..."
"Butte, Montana. Small town almost entirely comprised of violent meth heads."
"More of a town than a city..."
According to a friend I have who spent a lot of time in Arizona, this sounds about right.
"Used to have..."
"I always said..."
"Amityville. Yes, that Amityville.
I went there once.
I have not been back.
"It looks harmless..."
"Used to be..."
It doesn't look any of these are changing anytime soon, and that's sad.
