There are two kinds of people in the world: People who hit snooze when their alarm rings and people who get up right away. Although it may seem trivial, this should probably be the first thing you ask in your future-roommate’s interview because the two disciplines of alarm management cannot coexist in the same home. Period.
For the non-snoozers, moving in with someone who hits the snooze button on repeat is frustrating. As they lurch from the bed on the first ring, their roomie is down the hall, blissfully unaware of the firehouse siren blaring at their bedside. We congratulate them on their sound and restful sleep, but for the sake of the house, please get up.
Plus- for an added bonus -it seems like people who snooze their alarm also always have the loudest, most obnoxious ring tone selected. So if you’re a quick riser and want to be woken to the sound of raid sirens, metal music, or a realistic fog horn compilation, go ahead and move in with that snoozer friend of yours. In the story below, one early riser made this mistake and paid the price every morning at 5am. Scroll to read about how they got some petty revenge against their snoozy roomie and how you can potentially implement the same guerrilla tactics of passive aggression in your own home.
