Top 5 Worst Things to Wake Up to at Siena College

For those of you who are not morning people, waking up can be a drag. I bet you’ve probably picked up on a couple of the worst ways to wake up. Whether you have experience with any of these, here are the top five worst ways I have been woken up.

5. Alarm Clock

The start of another day of classes, homework, exams and Saga food. You may be thinking “What could be worse than this?” Well, actually quite a few things.

4. The Garbage Truck

If you were blessed with a room above the dumpster, you are lucky enough to never have to walk to the garage room, since you can just throw your garbage right out the window! However, when the garbage truck comes to pick up that trash, you will be woken from your beauty sleep by the clanking.

3. Construction

If you live in Plassmann and your room faces the gym, you might wake up to the sound of a power drill at 6 a.m. With little hope that this gym project will end, one can only wish for the drilling to begin a couple hours later.

2. The Fire Alarm

The fire alarm is one of the worst things to be woken up by, since not only are you awakened from your sleep but you actually are forced to get out of bed and go outside. Who would want to stand outside in the middle of the night in your pajamas with a bunch of angry college students?

1. A Wet Bed

The only thing worse than waking up to the fire alarm is waking up in a wet bed. If you happen to pee the bed after a night out, it’s not the end of the world, but you can be certain you are going to have to take a trip to Walmart to buy all new bedding.
