I joked that I was going to buy my unknown sleepy neighbor a Sn?zNL?z – Wifi Donation Alarm Clock, “Connects via WiFi to your online bank account, and donates YOUR real money to an organization you HATE when you decide to snooze!” because they keep sleeping through their alarm which subsequently wakes me up. I remarked about this to my co-worker Adam noting that it’d be better if instead of making a donation it just paid me. I then sent him the link and he noticed this fine print:
Really Fine Print: ThinkGeek reserves the right to take up to a 50% commision on all donations made through the Sn?zNL?z. In fact the software supplied with the clock ensures such is the case. Yay!. However, we promise to only use the money for rockets and beach front property.
No wonder the clock is only $39.99!
Fortunately I’ve tracked down the sleepy neighbor (I originally accused #202 but they denied it and said it must be someone upstairs which lead me to #301) and hopefully his wife relocated his alarm clock tonight so it won’t wake me up. Yes, I find it absurd that his alarm clock won’t wake him but wakes me up and I’m in the unit below him! Ah the joys of urbnlivn.
