Now, it’s not that I don’t want to tell the time when I wake up in the morning. It’s that I don’t want it spelled out in macaroni where I usually put my head.
Now, for a blind person, this might be excellent, although the designers could stand to reduce the size of the letters. As for the sighted, I don’t know about all you guys, but generally I sleep with my head sideways on my pillow, and could see my alarm clock clearly if I had one. I think it would wake me more to have to reach over and trace out each digit individually.
And what, sir, if I happen to wake up next to a woman of quality? What then, sir? If my arm is pinned, I won’t know what time it is until the lady wakes. If there’s an appointment to be made or work to be done, I’d have to chew my arm off just to tell whether or not it’s time to get up. Unacceptable.
