    Yes! 2 or 3 times before I get up, but that’s b/c I set my alarm ahead enough so I still get up “on time”. Why I don’t just set my alaram for when I want to get up is beyond me. There’s something about hitting the snooze button!

    My general rule is that the earlier I have to get up, the longer before that time I must set the alarm. I will usually hit the snooze button for at least an hour. After a while, it just stops going off.

    I’m so not a morning person.

    I do if I know I do not need to be somewhere at a certain time. If I do, I wake right up!

    I’m just like the first 2 posters. I guess the snooze button helps me to “ease into” the idea of waking up. I so hate waking up.

  5. Joy says:

    I wake up somehow when I need to without needing an alarm clock but if I need to be up, I’ll set it, just to be sure. I would never hit snooze. I am terrified of oversleeping and being late for something so if I hit snooze, I’d just lay there worried that it wouldn’t ring again when I really needed to get up or I’d lay there thinking “I wonder if I hit the right button and now I turned it off.” I know, I think goofy things!!! Once awake, I get up.

    I do but we also have 3 alarms we work with. An actual alarm clock, and 2 cell phones. Jason CANNOT be late!!!!!!! They are more for him than me. I don’t really need them. I somehow wake up 10 minutes before any alarm goes off. Then I have to lay there and listen to every alarm going off every 10 minutes but really it’s every 2 minutes because we have 3 going off!!!! So I don’t get to go back to sleep until Jason gets up and turns them ALL off!!!! If I have to get up I just get up! Maybe wait for one snooze but that’s it.

    Alarm goes off, and I’m out of bed within five minutes. I used to do the snooze thing, but then I realized that I actually get MORE sleep when I’m not using it – and I can sleep through until that alarm rings.

    What I don’t get is what Sparky does… he sets his watch/clocks 5-10 minutes fast. What’s the point? You KNOW it’s fast, so you’ll just take ten minutes longer!!

  8. Joy says:

    I know a lot of people who also set their clocks ahead and I don’t get that either LS. If you know it’s set ahead, what’s the point??

  9. Just a Mom says:

    I actually put my alarm clock across the room. When I was a teen I used to hit the snooze and then I would be late and I hate being late! If I have to get up out of bed to turn it off then I am not going to go back to bed.

    I set the clocks ahead in my house because my husband is always running late. So far in 10 years he has not figured it out!

  10. Morocco says:

    No, I’m just anal that way.

  11. nikki says:

    Jason has our clock radio set 20 minutes fast. He doesn’t get up though, he looks at it and says “ahhh I have 20 more minute” WTF is that?????? I have yet to figure it out!

  12. Gary says:

    I use my snooze button every day! I think the snooze button is the greatest invention of the 20th century!! 🙂

  13. SKL says:

    I just bought us some talking alarm clocks for Christmas. You program a message in there. Then when it’s time to wake up it will say, “hey dummy, get up, you have an 8am meeting downtown” or some such. Otherwise I sometimes forget that there is a particular reason why I need to get up, as opposed to just hitting the snooze until I’m afraid my kids will wet the bed.

    Unfortunately, I haven’t yet taken it out of the box and figured out how to use it . . . .

  14. Amy Hunter says:

    The snooze button would drive me insane. I am usually awake well ahead of my alarm, and I wake up to a cd. If I’m not wanting to get out of bed, I know I can listen through the first song and still have enough time to get ready, but that’s as close as I come to a snooze button.

    When I was younger I would hit the snooze button for an hour, But as I have grown older I dont need an alarm at all I always wake up in time for work. Whats funny about this is today my tax man was here at 12:30 my scheduled time and I didn’t wake up until 1:15 and I had to reschedule LOL. Oh no my next appointment is Friday the 13th hope all goes well.

  16. Tosha says:

    Nope.. I never get the chance… I tend to wake up atleast 5 to 10 minutes before the alarm goes off and can not just lay there..
