Waking up in the morning is hard for a lot of people but nothing makes it more intolerable than that incessant buzzing of your typical alarm clock. But the Infallibly Polite Speaking Alarm Clock is designed to wake you up in a decidedly proper, stereotypically British sort of way.
Made by Hammacher Schlemmer, this alarm clock features the voice of Reginald Jeeves, the character played by Stephen Fry from the TV show Jeeves and Wooster. So, instead of annoying beeps and buzzes and even the boring sounds of pop radio to help you rise and shine, Jeeves will simply implore you by saying, “Excuse me sir, I’m so sorry to disturb you, but it appears to be morning. Very inconvenient, I agree. I believe it is the rotation of the Earth that is to blame, sir.” And so on.
Apparently, there are even amusing tidbits to be offered when you hit the snooze button, like “Sir has a firm touch, but fair.” The Infallibly Polite Speaking Alarm Clock comes with 126 messages and will cost you $99.95.
