When staying in a hotel with an unfamiliar alarm clock and up late enough/tired enough that you decide to change the alarm time, it is a good idea to double and triple check that the little AM/PM dot is indeed set to what you think it is.
That is all…
And am I glad we don’t have the AM/PM trouble here in Europe…
I am always afraid of that, because there is no standard in the alarm clock industry.
People wonder why I love 24-hour time. 🙂
That drives me nuts. Some clocks have dots next to a mark that says “AM” or “PM” some have light-up “AM” and “PM”. It’s even worse when you get a new alarm clock and they work differently. It makes me long for 24hour time becoming standard in the USA.
Oh, dude, I hate when that happens. Now I always set the alarm on my cell phone when I’m in unfamiliar places. I’m sure those fancy communication devices you’re carrying around have an alarm buried in there somewhere. 🙂
There’s always the wake up call, too.
Ah yes, always trust your mobile so long as you change the time zones as well 🙂
