Alarms

My husband sleeps soooo heavy. So he has a bajillion alarms to get up for PT in the morning. It used to drive me insane. Three alarm clocks and his phone set to go off every minute for an hour. I now don't hear them at all. Normally, that's great. On the days that I need alarms, not so great. I only wake up when I hear the kiddo crying. Which means I end up being late if we have somewhere to be super early.

I need to find a really good alarm tone. Or maybe invent a gadget that smacks me if I sleep through an alarm lol

Anyway, like I was saying before I was deleted. My brother showed me one on the internet that you have to physically chase down and tackle. I thought that was funny.

I've heard of one that is linked to your bank account and a charity or organization that you don't support. If you snooze your alarm it deducts money from your bank account and gives it to the charity you don't support.

 My husband is the same. It drives me nuts because I am such a light sleeper. I'll let him hit snooze twice before I smack him upside the head and tell him to get up. He gets grumpy sometimes, but usually thanks me for getting his ass in gear for the morning. Lol

My husband used to do the same, two alarms set to go off every 5 minutes for an hour.  I finally have him down to 1 alarm that he only hits snooze for 30 minutes.   :)  His also starts off quiet and gets louder the longer he takes to hit snooze.  I sleep through it most mornings now too.

In college I used to put my alarm clock at a table at my feet so I had to sit up to hit snooze :)  Helped wake me up.

0 Alarm Clocks That'll Get You out of Bed

Discover the most jarring—but effective—ways to wake up

By Olivia Putnal

For most people, getting out of bed in the morning is a bit of a struggle. Luckily, the 10 clocks below are here to help. Some wake you up with an annoyingly loud noise, while others won't shut off until you complete a task--but they all promise to get even the sleepiest sleepyhead up and moving.

Start Your Engines

It’s full speed ahead as soon as this Genuine Hotrod Hardware drag-racing alarm clock goes off. The dashboard-inspired clock makes engine-revving sounds and flashes colored lights at the set time, so you'll feel like you're waking up right on the racetrack.


Hide and Go Seek

There's no excuse for waking up late with this alarm clock. As soon as you hit "snooze," Clocky jumps off your nightstand and begins moving around the floor, looking for somewhere to hide. Nothing like a little hide-and-go-seek to rouse you from your slumber.


Attention!

Ever wonder what waking up in the army would be like? Find out for yourself with this Drill Sergeant Alarm Clock, which blasts the army's morning bugle call, “Reveille," before your very own drill sergeant starts shouting orders.


Duck for Cover

This Sonic Grenade alarm clock is guaranteed to get your sleepy children out of bed. Just pull the pin, throw the grenade into the room and get out of the way as it emits an ear-piercing noise.


Blast Off 

The Rocket Launcher alarm clock will really "launch" you from your bed. When the alarm goes off, it shoots a rocket off in your room, and the only way to turn it off is to locate the rocket and place it back on the launch pad.


Puzzled

There's probably nothing more annoying than putting together a puzzle before you've even had a cup of coffee, but with the Puzzle Alarm Clock, you'll have to do just that. Once your alarm goes off, three puzzle pieces go flying in the air, and you have to return the colored shapes to the correct places in order to shut it off.


Get Up, Stand Up

The toughest part about waking up for many people is physically getting out of bed. Luckily, the Carpet Alarm Clock helps you work through the hard part, by forcing you to stand up and step on the mat to turn it off.


Don’t Drop the Bomb

You know that moment in a movie when the hero has mere seconds to dismantle a bomb before it explodes? You can experience that excitement every morning with the alarm clock. When the Banpresto DangerBomb alarm goes off, a series of loud explosive noises will sound until you’ve successfully disconnected the correct wire.


Cock-a-Doodle-Doo

The KUKU alarm takes the experience of waking up on a farm to a whole new level. When it’s time for your alarm to go off, it starts crowing and five tiny eggs are released into a basket. In order to get the noise to stop, you have to deposit the eggs back into the clock.


It Keeps Going and Going 

The No Snooze alarm clock ensures you'll wake up the one—and only—time your alarm goes off. A bright green light is emitted from the top and beeping noises sound continuously until you’ve successfully lifted and rotated the alarm’s strap for 1 1/2 minutes. Think you can just take out the batteries? Not so fast—the alarm comes complete with built-in electrically rechargeable batteries.

These are all great ideas if the snooze button is the culprit.
The only thing I can think of if your problem is actually hearing the alarm is a bed shaker.
They make them for deaf people and it vibrates your bed to wake you up.

Ahhh! Jerks! Lol that might do it. I don't play with money.

Those are hilarious! I am already not a morning person, I think those would make me insane. Definitely helpful though. I would be awake, for sure.
