If you like to take a nap during the day, what noise is most likely to wake you up?

I rarely take naps during the day. Despite my insomnia, I’m almost never sleepy during the day time. For those of you folks who like to take a little nap occasionally (or those of you who are day sleepers due to your work schedule) what noises are most likely to wake you up?

My husband watching TV or banging around in the kitchen.

Nearly nothing wakes me. The meds I take force me to sleep, even through much of my painful muscle spasms. Weird, the spasms sometimes enter my dreams. When a woman who drives me to appointments got her dates mixed up, I was asleep. Apparently she knocked until her fist bruised. Worried, she had the cops let her in. Hearing a man’s voice call my name woke me quick.
I live with just my daughter, no man has lived with me in nearly two decades. Having a male voice in the house was quite out of the ordinary.

Barking fucking dogs… Can’t stand that.

I live in the south. It’s not uncommon to hear a rooster, even in a suburban neighborhood.

Usually the phone ringing.

But more likely than not, I will feel bladder pressure, which will wake me up.

I nap for about a half-hour after lunch every day and can sleep through any sounds except for something unfamiliar and a ringing phone.

The phone

Don’t have that luxury yet except on weekends. I’ll have a very sound sleep for half an hour atleast before waking up due to any interference.

The realization that I have so much to do, and instead of doing any of those things, I decided to take a nap. I am lazy.

Back-up bell on trucks. I live right near a turnaround.

A child walking into my room.
I can sleep through tornado sirens, EMS shit right next to me, I can sleep through anything except a baby whimpering or a kid sliding into the room.

I tell telemarketers, “I’m broke. Want the number of the s.o.b. that took all my money?”
