Having worked in computers and IT for 10 years and traveling extensively for the last 4, I can safely say that computers are far more user-friendly than alarm clocks. Who comes up with these things and who decides to put the craziest ones in a hotel?! Last week I stayed in the W Manhattan (the fucking W – supposed to be a super nice hotel – it isn’t) and had an alarm clock so confusing that even after studying it for 15 minutes I had no idea how to set it. Luckily, the person before me who set it wanted to get up at the same time I did and I was able to turn it on. This is probably why hotels have wake-up calls, because no normal human can program the in-room alarm clock…
