Today, I set an alarm to wake up for a football match. I woke up after it finished. Turns out, I set my alarm to 12:15 p.m. instead of a.m. I ended up missing one of my team's best performances. FML

The event was likely on tv, taking place in another country. I feel like people are insane for not understanding any of this.

12:15 am is midnight, 12:15 pm is mid afternoon, so was the event in the middle of the night or were you trying to get there 10 hours early? Do you normally wake up after noon?

They meant to set it for AM. They wake up before noon. They set their alarm wrong.

They didn't. Their alarm didn't wake them up! Come on people! It's not that hard. They probably went to sleep at like 9 pm and woke up at 4 am.

My android phone said "alarm set for X hours Y minutes". It prevented this mistake. I moved to iPhone and now I get anxiety sometimes that I will set my alarm incorrectly.

That never happens with the 24h system. But I never hear my alarm clocks so I guess it doesn't really matter wether I set them up at the right time or not...
