Lazy man gets most active in snoozing alarms

23, Nov 2012 By Pagal Patrakar

New Delhi. Rahul Sonewala, who otherwise postpones every decision of his life, has been found to be most prompt and active in snoozing wake-up alarms. Rahul denies that the act of snoozing an alarm is postponement of the process of waking up.

“Dude, you need to move your arms, find the mobile phone, hold it, press the right button to snooze the alarm, and pull back your arms to execute a successful snoozing,” Rahul said, “You think a person who is in deep slumber can do this?”

“The fact is that I’m already awake when I snooze an alarm, so you can’t say that I’m postponing the process of waking up,” he claimed.

The 27-year-old, who is considered lazy by everyone except himself, even justified the fact that he finally wakes up and gets off the bed at 10 AM after continuously snoozing alarms for 3 hours in the morning.

“For those 3 hours, I do ‘net practice’ of waking up,” explained Rahul, who loves watching cricket in sofa, “Once I wake up, I don’t sleep again until after 10 PM. That’s more than 12 hours without sleep! It won’t be possible without some net practice.”

Rahul claims that the word “lazy” was coined by people who were jealous of people like him who could actively snooze alarms.

“The correct word is “differently active” and that’s what I am,” he said.

Sources say that Rahul, a Ph.D student when not sleeping, has not taken bath for three days and is yet to compose a thank-you mail that he had planned four days back. But he has an explanation even for these two acts that he denied as being glaring examples of his being lazy.

“It is winters already and people do take bath less frequently,” he said, “And even a schoolboy knows that days are of shorter duration during winters; I’m just not getting enough time to compose that mail.”
