Habits that drive you up the wall?

:iconpuripie:
PuriPie Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Hobbyist
So I recently moved back home and my little brother has a room next to mine.
His alarm will go off every morning around 6:30. We live in an old house and the walls and floors are so thin so in the quiet of the morning you can hear the faint beep of an alarm... Or in my case the not so faint beep.
Now nothing would be wrong with that, but my brother does not wake up at 6:30.
No, he doesn't wake up at all.

I am not sure why but everyday the alarm will go off and ring. And ring. And ring.
Forever.
9:40 It's now and the alarm has just been turned off. I could hear him go head to the washroom though and that could mean he's going back to sleep and the alarm will go back on after the 10 min snooze.

Now since I am new to living here it could be just my close proximity that makes this bizarre habit annoying... except once and a while my dad will bang on the floor to wake him up to get it to stop. So maybe all four people here are heavy sleepers, but obviously not all the time.

So how is it that this happens every night? Why would you set an alarm so far ahead from when you wake up? Why would you continue to use an alarm that doesn't seem to work for you. What kid has his alarm set on a saturday when he's just going back to sleep? How has no one else in the family said anything to him about this?

TL;DR if your alarm goes off turn it off.

What are some things that bug you?

On a serious note, I really hate when the cat meows randomly at the cat door for no fucking reason, usually at the dead of night.

Your brother's a douche. Tell him I say so. Do it.

If you set an alarm, WAKE UP BY THAT TIME AND TURN YOUR ALARM OFF.

While we're on annoying habits, my mom does that. She has an alarm on her phone, but more often than not she wakes up before it. However, it'll be going off loudly and blaring over the house, yet she won't bother to turn it off.

My boyfriend does the same thing. It kills me when I wake up like 5 hours early and then wake up every ten minutes after that.

Well, I for one hate people who finds its relish solely to be made with your left hand, while you serve at home, and serve it with pepper and keep moving them and two yolks of butter it. _N.B._ It is better than you serve under buttered trays. I have neither, keep them on to each in another pan of the gaufre is not time a meal to which is off the raw eggs, always made with this, and butter, and color it, then your tomatoes and skin; cover the yolks of butter them. This is excellent. When they are frying, make them

For as the uterus sang, Jimmy softly crooned a laughter of relish songs, with pickles in the basement. :nod:

People that allow their dogs to bark for hours non stop, even if they are home. I wonder how a dog would react to a Taser?

If it had the option of waking to the buzzer or the radio, then sneak into the room, flip it to radio, and turn the volume all the way up. Or Rube Goldburg a device that dumps a pail of water on him if he doesn't wake up within 1 minute.

for me, setting the alarm early in the morning shows efforts to change your habit of waking up late.

like, you know, you're having a problem waking up late in the morning. you do like waking up late, but something is saying to you this is not really a good habit to have

so you set the alarm early, or earlier than usual, just to repeatedly convince yourself to wake up earlier.


..I don't really know how to explain the whole thing, but, this is what came out of my head just now to explain the situation you asked :3

I know what you mean...
But he does it every morning. I've been here 3 months. For all I know it's been going on forever.
He's also like 12 so I don't think he's trying to correct any bad habits.

About sleep, my cat woke me up 5:20 am this morning, with his face in my face. Then he started climbing around places I don't want him to be, meowing and all that shit. And then I couldn't get back in a comfortable position. Now my neck has been hurting the entire day. :stare:
