Alarms

So my alarm clock at the Marriott doesn't seem to work. I am supposed to be roused around 0522 in the morning so I can be to work by about 0630. Yesterday I woke up at 0730. My alarm was armed, but not sounding. I check to make sure the AM/PM were aligned properly, saw they were, and figured I must've reset the alarm in or near my sleep. I shrugged and hurried off to work. This morning, the same thing happened -- I was awoken at 0708 by a coworker with an issue at work who called me in my room. I took the call, then tested my alarm by setting it to current time + 1 minute. No alarm. *sigh*.

In an unrelated event, I was entering a Walgreens on Monday. I made it about halfway up the first isle when a man halfway across the store addressed me. "Can you tell me where the shaving... er,.. you don't work here, do you?" he asked.

"Nope," I told him.

"Sorry. You had that kind of walk."

Some of those travel alarms are really nice.

People would often ask me for such things when walking around Famous Footware. The workers there clearly have a uniform and I make no indication that I am looking to help people. But them asking probably ahd to do with the fact that I would be there for a while. I would pace around waiting for my then girlfriend to be on break.

I use my watch's alarm wherever I go, including at home. I find it works very reliably.

It is worth noting that this would not work for me.
