A teacher asked a boy “What do you want to be when you grow up?”
He said “An alarm clock”.
“An alarm clock?” she asked.
“Yes an alarm clock,” he affirmed.
“Why not an astronaut, fireman, or even the president?” she challenged.
“Alarm clocks have the most important job in the world” he said.
“And what job is that?” she asked with curiosity.
“Alarm clocks wake people up.”
“I want to wake people up.”
“My father told me that the people need to wake up.”
“He said we have been sleeping too long and bad things are happening because we are sleep”
“So I figure the best way to wake people up is by being an alarm clock” he lectured.
“Did you tell your father that you wanted to be an alarm clock?” she continued.
“Of course, and he gave me some warnings” he explained.
“He told me people don’t appreciate alarm clocks”
“People tend not to like being awakened from their slumber”
“People hate when alarm clocks wake them up, and hate when alarm clocks allow them to oversleep.”
“Alarm clocks are not appreciated, but are extremely necessary.”
“He said if you want to be alarm clock your only satisfaction will come when the sleeping arise and take their place among the awakened.”
“So I decided when I grow up, even though the job will be tough, I want to be an alarm clock.”
The teacher mouth hung open, and she exclaimed, “You’ve just woke up your first person, I think I want to be an alarm clock as well.”
