In a recent 'Dayne's Dictionary' post, We looked at the word 'snooze' as a noun or as a verb eg. "I like to snooze in the morning" (verb) or "I like to have a snooze in the morning" (noun)

We can also use snooze, as a noun, to describe the button on our alarm clocks and phone alarms that enable us to do the verb from which it get its name. The snooze button! As a big fan of a nice long sleep, I am guilty of hitting snooze on my iPhone's alarm. As a result I've had to rush to get to the office on time.

So tell me, do you hit the snooze button in the morning? Tell me about it in the comments!

Peppo, I used to do that! But I guess my sleeping pattern changed

I snooze at least three times until I totally awake. I set at least five alarms on my mobile every morning because I am a deep sleeper, lol xD

Since I don't need to go to an office, I........sometimes snooze in the morning. :D
BUT, it will more than an hour, can I call that snooze? :D

The reason is when I am sleepless and slept too late the night before. And I can't take a nap. :)

Evangeline, that's fair enough. I don't like to be rushed or late, ever!

Comment by Dayne on March 23, 2016 at 2:39

setareh, you could set you alarm early and hit snooze! Apparently that's not effective.

A738a, very, very negative reinforcement!

Comment by Dayne on March 23, 2016 at 2:37

Sheba, 3 or 4 times! That's a good effort. Dedicated to sleep! haha :)

I have to make my kids ready for school so there is no snoozing, oh but it is completely a different story when we don't have to wake up early so I press the snooze button so many times.:D

It sure is! Behaviorists should definitely consider it as one of their negative reinforcement examples.

Dear Dayne,

I also hit the snooze button three or four times some mornings and get late for my classes. During my classes also sometimes I snooze. :)
