Somewhere in the pits of hell is an alarm clock manufacturer that is receiving everything he deserves.  Some years ago, friends of ours came across a purple light/siren alarm clock.

No one could figure out how to actually set the damn thing.  We searched for instructions online to no avail.  The buttons were so anti-intuitive they may as well have not been there at all.

So of course we took turns hiding it in each others houses.  Behind the TV, in the couch cushions, under the bed!

Until my buddy got married.  Then, of course we wrapped it up and gave it to them as a gift.  We didn't know, however, that all those presents were going to end up in the brides parents hotel room!

They were up all night trying to figure out where it was coming from and I don't think they found it until the actual opening of gifts the next day...and we haven't spoken since.

This next story reminded me of that purple/siren/alarm.  But this dummy did it himself!  It goes off every damn day...and has since 2004
