The least useful button

There’s one button I’m not a big fan of. One I’d really like to do away with. And that button is the “sleep” button on alarm clocks. While there may be one or two people in the world that actually use that button for its intended use, I’d venture to say that 99% of the times “sleep” gets pressed, it’s by accident. Sometimes it’s when trying to set the alarm for the morning and other times it’s when you’re waking up and hit the sleep button on your way to the snooze button. The latter is particularly awful since it requires one to wake up enough to count the sleep timer down to one minute, at which point, you might as well get out of bed anyway.

The sleep button needs to just go away.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
