Invest in an alarm clock, maybe? Or two? Or three? If you're sleeping through your alarm, though, one trick is to set your alarm(s) up on the other side of the room so you have to get out of bed to turn them off. It worked for me... until I started sleepwalking to turn all of them off and got back in bed, apparently.

I don't think the OP necessarily got to sleep in late, since even waking up a half an hour later than planned can make you super late. So their internal clock may have still made them wake up pretty early like they would usually for work- unless getting up late is common for OP, which wouldn't be shocking considering they were fired over it.

I've done the same thing so many times! When the table alarm clock stopped working for me, I downloaded an app where you have to scan a particular bar code to turn the alarm off, but after just one day, I started taking the battery out of my cellphone in order to turn it off, all while sleeping.

My sleepwalking habits are crazy like that! Lol. I only do it when I'm really exhausted, though. I'll fall asleep on a couch and wake up in bed later, I'll wake up to find my laptop on my desk after falling asleep with it in bed (a bad habit, I know), and I'll wake up two hours late with all three alarms I set the night before (across my room) turned completely off. It makes me wonder why I even try anymore!

I had the same issue of turning off the alarm while asleep (with it across the room) - or sleeping through it despite it being so loud it woke up everyone in the house (literally). What I did was switch to a radio - it's never the same twice so you are less likely to sleep through it. That and two alarms about 15-20 mins apart so you can't fully fall back asleep. For those that stay up late, try using an early alarm. I started getting up at 6:30am every day, even weekends. Over time it's changed that now I don't even need an alarm - I wake up early naturally! So don't think it can't be done! :)

40, can the snooze feature be disabled? If not, it kinda makes the math problems a moot point. 31, I'd suggest setting 1-2 minute intervals. Anything longer allows you to doze off again, bringing you back into a state at which you're unable to consciously react to the alarm.

I have 3 alarms and each of them goes off every 5 minutes when I hit snooze. I hit snooze quite a few times and then my alarms end up aligning one minute apart and I finally wake up when I'm annoyed lol I am NOT a morning person

I've always had a problem waking up to the sound of a beeping/buzzing alarm clock. What worked for me was setting the alarm clock, which I place on the other side of the room, to radio, and setting the alarm on my phone to a really annoying song. Two different songs playing at the same time screws with my brain or something and I wake up every time to turn that nonsense off!
