YOU
BIG
DUMMY

Woke up with a start today and looked at the clock. Brain said it was 5 min to the alarm so brain said "just get up". This I did, and proceeded to go through the normal preparing for work procedures.

So I was well into my coffee, when I realized I had gotten up a full hour earlier than normal. D'OH!



Too late to go back to bed, so just got on with things. Put in an "extra" hr at the brewery, but it turned out to be productive so no regrets there.

Guess I'm gonna be a bit tired earlier tonight tho........

YOU

BIG

DUMMY





(seriously, anyone else ever done this? Second time for me!)


Cheers,

RR

I hate it when that happens!

Many years ago, when I was an avid shortwave listener, I somehow mistook the time on my shortwave (set to GMT) for my alarm clock. I was finished with breakfast before I realized there were still 5 hours before my alarm. . . .

I got up and did the morning routine and hopped into my car and drove the 87 miles to work. I went into the office and went to sign the "sign in" sheet, only to find that my name was somehow missing. I went to the Supervisor and he said it must be an error, "just write your name in on the bottom". OK, I did that. I then went to my office and the fellas in there looked at me funny (more than they usually do). One of them asked if I was lost. The other one asked if I had switched my day off. I said no. He said, "You do realize it is Saturday?"......it was my day off! affraid

The Supervisor let me stay and finish the shift. He rearranged my schedule and moved my day off.

If I get out of bed an hour early (by mistake), I just consider that I have just received another hour of life to live if you follow my logic!

Those of us who don't get much sleep and you know who you are....first pipe of the day starts at 4AM. The birds and critters aren't even up yet but the silence is WONDERFUL. Just me and the pipe. Right aj?

Slightly off thread, but I'm among friends.

You are just practicing for reaching "full maturity" where being up when it wasn't really your desire becomes closer to the norm.

I don't generally use alarm clocks. Once the teenage ruffian of tardiness, devil-may-care about life and career, I'm now able to program myself the night before to wake up when I need to. Usually it's about two hours before whatever it is I need to do. I prefer hours from about 11pm/12am to about 6am. That's my favorite schedule. Sadly, with an irregular job, regular hours are hard to keep. Sometimes I'm up until 3am doing something random and then waking up at 6am, or I'll get super tired at 10pm and wake up at 10am. Regular work is a godsend for keeping a halfway-decent sleep schedule.

For the rare times I require alarm clocks, often I wake up about an hour to two hours beforehand. This is because I've had some really cheap alarm clocks that were totally unreliable and they made me paranoid.

These days, I use the extra time to leisurely smoke a pipe, watch the sun rise, sip a cup of tea and listen to some music. One man's curse is the blessing of another, I suppose. Laughing

Ya usually happens to me on a Saturday when my three year wants to wake me up at six by sitting on my head after I stayed up to three , because that's what time we wake him up during the week. Twisted Evil Rolling Eyes

Other wise I'm a hit the alarm five times kinda guy. geek

Several years ago I worked as a machinist. The company was sold and for the last three years of its existence I worked 4AM - 4PM seven days a week. Had to be up and on the road at 3AM to get there on time. When the place closed it left me wandering the house at three AM for at least 3 months. It was an odd feeling but like several others here I enjoyed a pipe while watching the sun rise.

I worked fifteen years in a row at a factory. Retired. After seven months I'm finally getting so I can sleep at night!

Interesting posts. Looks like I'm not alone on the sleep/wake thing.

Funny what the body gets used to. I normally start to wake up about 1/2 hr before the alarm goes off. Thus, the impetus to get up and get 'er done!

What sucks is on the days off. Laying in bed is a problem, and I really don't sleep beyond a certain point. So I just get up and get on with it.

Can't justify a bowl before work. Pity, that!

Surprised


Cheers,

RR

What I hate is when I wake up an hour or two before the alarm is set to go off and I can't, no matter what I do, go back to sleep.
Might as well get up and do something constructive.

One truly glorious aspect of being retired is I can take naps whenever the urge to comes along. Very Happy

The sixteen hours "up," eight hours asleep pattern, IMO, has more to do with managing people in groups than it does with natural human biorythms.

E.g., the afternoon siesta.

Have been waking up btwn 3 to 4 am for over 30 years to get to work and it's taken me almost the first full year of mt "retirement" to get that changed. Sadly, my kittehs clock hasn't so it's up by 4 am, feed the puddy's and go back to bed till 7 or 8 am. And bein' home with the kittehs all day now has made me realize how smart they are, they take NAPS Twisted Evil And now I do Twisted Evil

We did that at a hotel last year, flying to FL on a 6 AM flight. I always set my phone alarm, and never really use the hotel clock. I woke up and glanced over at the nightstand clock which said 5 AM. Yikes! Since we wanted to BE at the airport at 5 AM, I leaped out of bed, threw the wife out and we scrambled to get ready. In the cab on the way over, I noticed it was only 3 AM.... The nightstand clock was set three hours fast..........We caught a few winks in an uncomfortable airport chair before the flight.

I get up when I wake up. On those rare occasions when I use the alarm clock, I usually wake up before it sounds, and I just get up. No point in lollygaggin' around...
