Skip Alarm

A Skip Next button on alarm clocks
  [vote for,

I'd like a button on my alarm clock to skip just the next occurrence of the alarm. For instance, if I have an alarm set for 7 AM, but I don't have to get up tomorrow morning, I now have to shut off the alarm and (hopefully) remember to turn it back on tomorrow. Instead, I'd like to "skip next" and leave it on, so it wouldn't go off the next time 7 AM rolls around, but would go off the morning after even if I forgot about it.

Ideally, the feature should also work for the snooze alarm. If the normal snooze is, say, 10 minutes, but I know I can get away with 20, why hit the snooze twice? Hit "skip next", and sleep 20 minutes without shutting off the whole snooze schedule.

       So this is a 24 hour skip? No telling what you'd actually get, with all the fumbling and bashing people do in the morning. They might end up with a hundred year skip. Wake up all bearded and hoary, their job gone and everyone they know dead. Could be kinda frightening when they open the fridge.

       I thought this would be something which wakes you up when your neighbour, in the dead of night, tries to sneak an old mattress into the skip outside your house.

       What about a "skip weekends" setting?

       The alarm on my mobile has this function. Most useful.

       Love your name. But this idea is solving a nonexisting problem.   

       On my alarm clock I simply push the alarm off button, ah I get it now, sorry, silly me. getting up early from the alarm clock is a rare occurence for me.

       I thought this was going to be some sort of buzzer that went off when your walk became a little too light-footed.
