Default $2?!

I was surfing the other day and came across this site that charges $2 to give you a wake up call. Would you pay $2 for it?

It depends on where I am, how important it is that I get up, and how reliable the available alarm clock is.

OMG, my DH has a friend with THE MOST amazing voice EVER. I'd pay up to $5.00 to have HIM call and wake me up! Actually, the first time I talked to him (on the phone, on our wedding day!), I asked if he'd call me and read me bed time stories. His voice sounds like ... like ... something all warm and drippy sweet.

Nope! Not when I can pay $4 for a travel sized alarm clock at Wal-Mart.

No.

However, if the wakeup call was from Patrick Stewart, that'd be a different story.

Although if I did get a wakeup call from Patrick Stewart, I'd probably end up back in bed for... um... a few minutes longer to... uh... never mind...

I wouldn't pay for it - what's the use? I hit snooze a million times; if I just had one wakeup call I'd never get to work before noon.

You are probably right. I guess it will be the most useful when you are travelling but otherwise - alarm clock works. But there are those days where you just cannot hear the alarm.....

I agree. It's not something I'd use every day, but for something important, it might be worth it.

If I'm in a motel, the desk will do a wakeup call for free. At home I have an alarm clock. For $2 I can get a venti Starbucks to wake me up. Who needs a phone call? :P

WHY??? I have a perfectly good alarm clock that wakes me up at 6:12 a.m. every morning Mon-Fri. 6:12 means I get to hit "snooze twice and still get up at 6:30 a.m.

I would probably ignore the phone anyway.

I was going to say it depended on who was doing the waking.

Can you ask Patrick to send over Commander Riker circa 1989.
