What's the relationship between you and your alarm clock?
There are many different ways to treat an alarm clock. Some people enjoy the snooze button, while others practice the archaic ritual of actually getting up the first time; a few unlucky people have trust issues and sleep right through their buzzers. I set mine to go off an hour earlier than needed and use the snooze button until the correct time comes; on the other hand, my parents have a love-hate relationship with theirs and argue with it until they absolutely have to rise.
So, how does your noise-maker get along with you?
