Alarm Clocks, Internal Clocks, & Other Annoyances

I hate waking up to an alarm clock.

It doesn’t really matter what time of the day the alarm is set for, if it wakes me up, I’m in a bad mood for at least a few minutes.

I’ve joked with the people that I work with that I come close to quitting every morning because I despise waking up to an alarm clock so much.

Now, if I wake up on my own at any time, I’m a much happier person.

Some say that they wake up at a certain time every morning because their body’s trained to wake up … Thats never been my case.

Alarm clocks annoy me.

What annoys you?


  1. What really annoys me is when my husband & son interrupt me when I’m talking, because I have this equally annoying habit of saying the wrong word (usually it’s a noun) in a sentence. Then I forget what I’m saying altogether.

  2. So many things annoy me…

    Talking over people (which is hard when I homeschool and having squawking children and birds in my house)

    People who sniffle constantly

    alarm clocks, yes…and even worse when my husband hits the snooze button about 10 times. I unplugged his once just to show him and he was late to work. ha.



    dogs barking and the neighbors not letting them in, especially early in the morning or late at night

    talk radio


    I could go on. LOL

    Haha.. I get annoyed by the alarm clock too. I’m an evening person not a morning so it’s never a welcome sound.
    What annoys me most though are people in the self-check line at the grocery store who talk on their cell phones and slowwwwwwwwwwly self-check themselves out of line. It just feels rude to me and I have to fight against being loving and forgiving and being patient. Maybe I’m more annoyed with my fleshy “self” thoughts than their actions truthfully, but it’s annoying for sure.

  4. I am annoyed by being asked what annoys me….

    I am also annoyed by lip smacking when chewing food and gum.

    When it comes to the Alarm clock – I hate it too – I have got to the point where I can repeat about 5 times to myself what time I want to wake up and I do wake up within about 10 minutes of when I want to get up …..but I still set an alarm clock.

  5. I’m the same way with alarm clocks. That’s why I don’t have one. My wife’s always up before me so she is kind enough to nudge me out of bed. ;)

    I can’t stand when people talk during movies. Drives me insane, especially if it’s one I’ve paid to see.

    1. Oh… and having unread items in my RSS. Annoys the crap out of me. But I keep finding new blogs to subscribe to (like yours here) and I can’t seem to keep up.

    I have a Twitter account, Facebook and not to mention email and other sources..I love them all and want more…My Twitter account is starting to look like one of thos hashtags that goes so fast, you have to have eyes that are rolling to keep up with what was just said..( I know that is my own fault). I signed up for all of this so I could meet people, help people and share with others my love for Jesus and family..So what annoys me…I can’t keep up with all the things I need to get too now!! And I just had a duh moment..I love reading these posts..why haven’t I subscribed?? Thanks Jonathan!!

    What annoys me are people who take up my time by telling me all of their problems. People look at me and think they can share really personal stuff that I don’t want to know about. I guess I wouldn’t make a very good pastor.

  8. See I am the opposite, alarm clocks do not bother me at all.
    You should try the app sleepcycle. It is suppose to be an alarm that wakes you up just at the right time and is a slow progressing alarm.

    Since we are on the subject of sleeping and annoyances, I will have to go with people who snore. My roommate snores and it annoys me big time. Probably because I am a light sleeper and he is on the other side of the house and I can still hear him.
