List Rules Only things that wake you up before your alarm clock and before you want to be awake

It doesn't matter if you’re an early riser or if you hit the snooze button a dozen times, everyone likes to get out of bed at their own pace. The way you wake up sets the tone for your day, and there’s nothing worse than waking up before you’re ready. Whether you've set your alarm or you're all set to sleep in on a weekend, at some point, you've been rudely awakened by some unholy sound destroying dreamland and dragging into the waking world. From lawnmowers to kids playing the violin, we’re listing the most annoying things that wake you up.

This has happened to everybody: you’re fast asleep when suddenly, your stupid neighbor’s car alarm starts going off for no reason or a construction crew conducts a jackhammer symphony right outside your window. You try to ignore it, try to hide under your pillow, but you're awake now. From here on out you’re no longer a sweet, sleepy angel. You're an angry messenger of doom.
 
Vote up the worst things to wake up to when you'd rather be sleeping. And feel free to add your own personal hellish wake up peeve to the list.
