I was listening to two people argue about the use of snooze buttons on alarms the other day.
She said she loved the snooze button and used it several times each morning to have more time before getting out of bed.
He said that’s stupid, you should just set an alarm for when you want to get out of bed, and get out of bed when the alarm goes off.
I am a big fan of the snooze button. In fact, I wish we had that option in life. It would be nice to hit the snooze button if I needed a little more time to order at a restaurant, to make a decision, or if you’re having an argument with someone, hit the snooze button to give yourself more time to think of what to say.
Although we don’t have those options elsewhere in life, it is good to know, with time as valuable and precious as it is, that at least in one area of life, we have something we can reliably use to control time.
