For me it was only last week and the couple next door where making donkey noises ............eeeehhh ooooreee!!
That's nothing - you're lucky
I woke up to the fire alarm beeping. Had an electrical fire in the bathroom. At first i thought it was my regular alarm going off. Thank goodness it was pretty small and confined to the bathroom AND that it happened when I was home. Could have been much worse.
Tell me about it! AND I did the worst thing I probably could - I panicked and put it out with water - a big no-no from what I was told. Totally forgot about the extinguisher i had in the next room. Like I said, coulda been worse
Water and electrics do not mix...I know this from when I pee'd against an electrified security fence....for a full month my wife was treated to a black mans ding dong!!
LOL, I actually got chatting to a female friend who was telling me how her boyfriend and his mates went to a neighbouring island for a night out and dared each other to put their knobs on the cattle's electric fencing. Apparently they were being thrown backwards 5 or 6 metres at a time... ouch!!!
the puppy had diareah on the rug where I put my feet in the morning and that really felt gross this morning
I woke up to the house being on fire. That was an interesting experience.
Two neighbors fighting was the worst thing I ever woke up to. It was about three in the morning and after heated talk he hit her a few times. I phoned the police to sort it out as did a few other people. The cops came. It was basically a good neighborhood and the couple didn't stay for very long. I hope she eventually left him. They were in their twenties and neither one was suited to a live in long term relationship. They weren't what you would call mature for their either their size and age. This was about ten years ago.
Daughter screaming like a banshee because son had just poured a whole bottle of pancake syrup on her. they were 13 an 15 at the time, and having cereal for breakfast.
Haha, that is hilarious! I guess not if it happens to you though...
My worst wake-up ever was in a hostel in sydney. Some drunk idiot Irish guy climbed in my bed with me by mistake. But he was to drunk to realise, and passed out hugging me. Took me a while to break free of his embrace. I was unable to wake him up and get him out of my bed. I ended up taking a shower in the middle of the night (this guy was smelly and sweaty), and then I just sat at reception, talking with the receptionist guy for the rest of the night. No way I was getting back into my bed, or his bed!
long time ago, my ex coming in drunk as a skunkaroo about 3 am and wanting to argue - that was worse even then the time the neighbor guy (also drunk) was tearing down his fence at 4 am and the cops were there trying to get him to stop.
Oh yea drunks I had forgotten how much fun they can be. I once had a beer bottle thrown through my window at 2 am because the guy next door was fighting with his wife and to drunk to know which house was his.
Ohh drunken neighbours and passers by are the worst!!
When I was a student someone tried to piss through our letterbox and I slammed that letterbox flap so hard...wasn't until the morning that I found the foreskin of the idiots ding dong splattered on the door....that made me sick for weeks!
I went to a big party while in college at locals house and I got pretty drunk so I passed out in one of the five bedrooms. I couldn't have been in there too long when I woke up to a warm, wet feeling on my chest and tummy...Yep, some drunk douche bag threw up up on me...nice!!! Ahhhh..good times
It was really bad. My brother in law got shot in a restaurant by a nutcase at another table. Hope that was my final worst wake up
I woke up to a cat I had at the time raking its claw down the sole of my foot... that really really hurt.
Another time I woke up when a different cat decided to pee on the duvet and I felt the warm wet feeling sinking through to the mattress....
But the worst has to be waking up to hear my own somewhat pissed Husband peeing in the bed in his sleep, at which point I rudely woke him up and turfed him out of the bed and the bedroom at a rate of knots. I was NOT impressed!!
Hm... In my very first apartment, there was this old, perverted man who lived in the apartment next door. Every single night, I would be woken up by the sounds of him and his girlfriend... uhh... making donkey noises. Now, this wouldn't be so bad, but what I found disturbing was... that after they were done, the woman would cry for a good hour or two before they finally turned the TV onto some pornographic movie and were quiet.
That is really weird and disturbing at the same time!
I agree. I actually considered calling the police a few times as I was concerned for the woman. She was quite a bit younger than him and... well, she was crying. But every time I saw her, she seemed happy, never had any bruises or black eyes, was free to come and go as she pleased. So... I have come to my own assumption that they were just really kinky... and not in a sexy way.
My dog licking my nostrils at 3am. He wanted to go out.
Are you sure you maybe didn't have some leftover food still on your face?
hmm...let me think...the neighbor talking and laughing really loud on the phone and he didn't get off even with me pounding on the wall so my husband and I were both up until 5 in the damn morning.
then there is my husband's snoring that keeps me up and wakes me up.
and last my kitten Tiger jumping on me in the middle of the night so he can snuggle, purr and kiss me before he falls to sleep, leaving me awake for a good 20 minutes before I could fall asleep again.
lol thankfully no! but the snoring and the kitten one happens almost every night
Perhaps earplugs or a sledgehammer might help?
Tried ear plugs...that doesn't work. he is going in next week for a sleep study so yea we'll see how loud he snores for them
They'll probably send him home to you before the night is out. Seriously, that could really be just a simple procedure to correct that.
You would think but NO it took three doctors to say yea you need to get checked out. the first two said it's just allergies and gave him allergie medicine. I should have talked to them of course I would have been kicked out for yelling and curinsg and even the third doctor noticed that my husband's nose is crooked which is most likely the cause of the snoring. I saw that and knew it way back when and I'm not a doctor
It's been the three D's for me that have hit the hardest!
I know the feeling. My dad hadn't died yet, but was told he would not survive and had to hurry to hospital if I wanted to see him before he passed. I was 4 hours away at the time and it was 3am.
A habitual drunk in the neighborhood who challenges everyone in sight to a fist fight.
I hate alarm clocks. I can wake up to music or ocean waves, but a typical alarm clock will ruin my week.
First time ever away from home, at college, alone in apartment because roommate hadn't moved in yet - was awakened by a 6.5 foot boa constrictor that came up my toilet!!!!!
My dogs yelling at me to run a mountain lion off the porch..
I have been woken up by faulty fire alarms, more than once. We finally replaced all of them.... at least I know my kids know what to do in an emergency.
One time I thought I heard one of the kids crying and went to check, only to discover that they were all sound asleep, but that our furnace was on fire. I was able to blow it out, but we were without heat for two days during the winter.
There have been a couple of neighborhood fires that have woke me up. More than once I have had to call the fire department.
There have been a couple of vehicle wrecks by drunks, which the cops never make it to... the drunks always get their buddies to rescue them and their vehicle.
There was the AC/DC wanna be band, at the local bar that played until 3 or 4 am, before this little town got it's own police department. That happened more than once.
Of course, there is the sound of someone puking, as every mother knows. Hate hearing that one, and knowing it is my job to deal with it.
But the worst was being woke up by sticks being broken, night after night, outside our tent, and knowing we had a stalker. Every morning I could find a pile of twigs where the jerk had sat. We finally started sleeping armed -- shot gun and knives. He finally got the hint, and left us alone.
Probably had to be when I was 18-had just had my tonsils removed 4 days prior. I woke up choking on what I thought was vomit. When I caught my breath and flipped on the light I noticed I was drenched in blood that was still coming out of my mouth.
Ended up getting a blood transfusion and was told the incision had reopened. But waking up covered in blood isn't my idea of a good wake up call.
I was awakened to seeing the walls moving, and the waterbed moving like I was in a small boat in the ocean. It was a 5.4 earthquake!
9/11 call, my little brother frantically telling me, "I'm okay, I was late to work and our older brother DIDN'T make it to work yet, I know he didn't, he couldn't have, he was only one train ahead of me. He's okay. I know he's okay. He is, he IS!" We did manage to find my older brother at around seven that night, not in the best shape but alive and now doing okay.
And the kids' dad had just gone to D.C. And my brother-in-law was on the construction team at the Pentagon (nobody knew he had been moved a couple of weeks earlier).
They're all okay but I certainly don't ever want a day like that again. Ever.
9/11, absolutely. My cable was out but my roommate had a dish out the back door for his TV. I was asleep on the couch, and he woke me up, and showed me the fuzzy view of local news on my antenna TV. I said, it's a trailer for a movie!, He said, no, and took me to his room to see a clear picture "We're at war" is all he said.
When my dad called to tell me that my older brother had drowned.
A phone call in the middle of the night saying that my father had shot himself.
My son who was just under a year old, painting the wall next to his crib in his own poooh!!
My bed was half submerged in water when typhoon strikes at our place. But that was when I was 10 yrs old
