121 - Ahh the circuit breaker move. I used to do that when I was little and my brother was playing music loudly when I was trying to sleep. He never figured it out xD @ OP - My old roommate did the same thing, be thankful you probably weren't stupid enough to share a studio apartment with someone. Circuit breaker move becomes a wee bit too obvious then.
I can confirm that the "alarm across the room" method isn't foolproof. My strategy is to set my ihome to max volume and have it blast rap music to wake me up. I find that music doesn't wake you up as abruptly as an alarm clock so by the time I turn it off, I'm awake enough to know not to go back to bed.
I have a Clocky. It's an alarm on wheels, which rolls away as it goes off, so you have to catch it to turn it off. Nothing wakes me up like trying to reach under my bed to grab a runaway clock. I also feel the need to shut it off as quickly as possible so as not to disturb anyone else in the house, so there's a sense of urgency in catching it.
Solution: Hammer. Whether you hit the clock or your roommate with it is up to you, OP! I would go with the clock though
Christmas is coming up , buy her a early Christmas or a "just because " gift and get her a new not as loud alarm clock , or at least one that you can adjust the sound volume.
You can always wake her up the first time it rings. After that she won't keep the alarm on and it won't keep ringing. Problem solved.
I'm like op's roommate, of course I feel bad for my bf but.... It's just so cold in the morning and sleep is so Nice!!!! But if someone threw my alarm clock out the window and I was late I would probably kill them, if for no other reason than to be able to blame someone else for my lateness. However (and this has happened before) when people try to wake me up I will argue both logically and viscously, sometimes fight back, and quite often continue sleeping like a fucking rock So op, good luck
