Infuriating Things Your Partner Does


Recommended Posts

I only use the snooze if I don’t really have to get up, like on a weekend or a day off.

To get up for work, I’d always assumed the correct procedure is to set the alarm for when you want to get up, and get up when the alarm goes off, thus ensuring the maximum amount of unbroken sleep. Maybe I’m missing something?

Snooze is handy on those mornings when your mind is wrenched from sleep by the alarm and you require five or ten minutes for your brain to come to terms with reality again, and how to control the fleshy mass it's embedded within. Attempting to jump straight out of bed on those days would likely result in me crashing face-first onto the floor.

Anything other than that is mental behaviour.

I have tried for a long time to get up without using the snooze button but my brain just does not let me. I’m woken by the alarm and the shocked state of being awoken that way needs some adjustment time or you feel absolutely appalling.

Buying new curtains. "Do you prefer the charcoal or the grey?"

Apparently "they look just the fucking same to me" is not the correct answer,

I bought one of they funcy Philips alarm clocks a couple of years back. Absolute game changer and, believe it or not, worth every penny of the 150 notes I spent on it. A light comes on half an hour before I'm due to get up and gradually gets brighter. It means that when the alarm sounds (gentle music that gets louder) there's no "from sleep untimely ripped" feeling so I generally wake up in a much better mood.

I do spend an hour snoozing the fucker though because my room is cold and there's no risk of gbh from a nearby significant other ☺️.

Is this the one? Sounds worth a try.
Although it has to be said that it looks like some sort of robo-fanny sex contraption b7595ea8ad4113ea06517ed00350c3fc.jpg

Cowards. I use this as an alarm with my phone as far away from my sleeping position as possible:

£120 on Amazon the noo. They saw you coming, m9.

I'd imagine there's probably a phone app that does something similar, but if it works for you, well done.

Phone next to the bed? F*ck right off.

How come? That's my alarm clock.

Stick it on mute for anything else.

Any particular reason why?

For me, leaving the phone downstairs breaks the mental connection with all the usual daytime thoughts. Lamp, kindle and that's it for me.

Also means you don't instantly start looking at updates and messages as soon as you wake up.

Aye I da want to be disturbed, or tempted to use it. Keeps a solid demarcation that the bedroom is for sleep. My brain likes solid boundaries, I think.

E.t.a. what Gordo the polis said.
