Waking up is almost never a fun process.
But if you've ever woken up to a fight, the sounds of something clattering outside, an attempted intruder, or your own body betraying you, then you know not all interruptions of sleep are equal.
A handful of spaced-out alarms might be annoying, but they'll never rival feeling like you got hit by a truck after waking up to an irritating surprise.

I woke up to a f*cking kidney stone.
Punched in the head by my now ex-wife. She dreamt I cheated on her.
She acknowledged it was a dream, was still pissed at me for it 3 days later.
I had spent the entire day and evening at the hospital, sitting at my mother's bedside in ICU. She was very ill and in a coma, but the docs were all quite optimistic. My stepfather and I bundled into my car and we went to his apartment to get some sleep.
