I want to turn the alarm off before it goes off so that I don't wake my wife - BEEP!
I want to see the time in the dark in the middle of the night - BEEP!
I need to turn the alarm on late at night and my wife is already asleep - BEEP!
I need to change the alarm time late at night and my wife is already asleep - A beep for every fucking minute!!!
Thankfully, as I said, I've now found a replacement for my original one so this thing was consigned to the great alarm clock cloud in the sky, but for several months it really pissed me off!
