Too many wakeup calls!
Up until not so many years ago, most people used a proper clock to wake up. Proper clocks that made proper clock noises. Including wakeup alarms. Hearing a morning wakeup alarm at any other time of the day was most unusual.
These days, many of us use our mobiles as an alarm. And while mobiles often have retro phone ringing sounds, they don’t seem to have retro alarm noises. Well, mine doesn’t. ‘Consumers want choice’ is the capitalist mantra. And, boy, do we have choice when it comes to ringtones - the world is awash with them! Apart from the sound of an old-fashioned alarm clock! So I shouldn’t be surprised that some idiot in my office has recently got the same phone as I have and uses the same ringtone that I use to wake up in the morning.
It’s driving me fucking mad!!!
