You know who I feel bad for? That guy a few offices over who overslept his alarm and came to work a half hour late!
Can you imagine?
Getting TOO much sleep?
So much sleep that you have to say that you OVERslept!
Oh the horror! Poor guy probably woke up fully rested and without a headache from his alarm clock screaming at him like it's name was Stephen A. Smith.
I'll tell you what is a problem - undersleeping. The fact that I wake up 20 minutes before my alarm goes off every single day.
Know what you can do with those extra 20 minutes?
You can't fall back to sleep because the exact second you finally fall back to sleep your alarm will go off. There is some crazy time / space continuum that forces time to speed up when you wake up before your alarm.
What do you do? You get up. You make yourself some toast and then read a news story about a chipmunk in Montana that has an affinity for wearing sweaters. Maybe after that you fold some laundry that has been sitting on your floor since the 80's - then throw on some clothes and head to work.
But you did a horrible job of wasting time so now you are at work way early and no one is around so you can't get anything done. You try to surf online but you already read the news story about the chipmunk so that sucks. Finally you decide to get started in on your work so maybe you can sneak out a bit early - which never happens. An hour later after everyone has trickled in and you finally forgot about how horrible your morning in the office desert, was your buddy comes running into your office -
"Holy shit, man. I overslept. I know I set my alarm - I must have screwed up the AM/PM or something. This SUCKS dude! What am I going to do? I gotta go, man - I gotta get shit done!"
Poor guy. Maybe I'll send him that article about that chipmunk to brighten his day.
