Alarm? What alarm? You could try to wake me with a firecracker and I'd still stay in bed.

I’m not exactly what you’d call a morning person. Not even close. I’ve tried just about everything to wake myself up, but I always fall back to sleep unless someone else wakes me up.
Right now I use two alarms on my cell phone set 10 minutes apart, and then my iPod alarm goes off 5 minutes later. And after all that, my mom or brother comes in to wake me up before I finally roll out of bed.
There is something about an alarm that I can ignore, no matter how loud or obnoxious it is. I’ve tried beeping alarms, music alarms, even my phone alarm, which I set on vibrate put under my pillow at night. Somehow, while I’m still practically asleep, I forget that I have work and really need to show up on time. I just turn the alarm off and fall back asleep. Even if the alarm's across the room, I just walk over, turn it off and I’m asleep before my head hits the pillow.
Thank God my brother leaves for work half an hour before I do, and my mom gets up to make my lunch, breakfast, and coffee everyday. Otherwise, I’m pretty sure I’d sleep until 10 or 11am and probably be fired within the week.
