Go to work later ffs
i imagine i would just be puzzled and speechless
it was a bit weird. she sounded so sincere about it and was like 'ive got young children' etc etc. but what the hell can i do?
you're resigning yourself to no sleep anyway? I am so sick of people using their kids to claim superiority.
That was only the tip of the iceberg. She was certifiably insane. Last I heard, she moved to LA and worked as a PA on Mad Men. lol wut
and then shuffle off dejectedly. they'll feel pity for your life and leave you alone.
But, at the same time, my flatmate sets her alarm clock on snooze to go off at ten minute intervals for about fifty minutes before she gets up each morning. If I'm getting up later than her then Christ it's annoying. Wouldn't complain about it but it is.
.. just kick her poor arse out on the street instead
BUT to be fair, say i get up at 7am yet every morning i can hear my neighbour's alarm at 6am i'd be pretty pissed off. seriously that's an hour's sleep i'm losing (especially if it's set to snooze multiple times).
turn your alarm down? assuming it's your phone. i only have mine on quietly because it makes me jump loads if it's really loud.
alarms are supposed to be loud, and people take time to wake up. his neighbour's an idiot.
In my last job I had to leave the house at 6.20am every day to get to work on time, i.e. waking up at 5.45am. There was a month long period where it was an hour earlier than that.
That said, you could probably have your alarm on a different setting. If you have it on a "soft vibrate" setting on a wooden surface, the reverberations of the phone on the table or whatever should be enough to wake you up without it necessarily being too loud.
They seem leave them lying around on their wooden floors. I even know that they have iPhones as I can hear the text message tone. One of them has chosen the clown horn noise. This isn't really what this thread's about, sorry.
you've got to get up to get down.
