Again! That incessant beeping! "Fine!" - Gerald, once more, rolled over and unplugged the alarm clock...

...Which set off the smoke detectors. A chorus of beeping penetrated the house as Gerald stumbled around his bedroom, frantically trying to pull his pyjama pants on over his head. Ensconced in sheets and pants (almost), he stumbled into the bathroom, where the Stage Two button awaited him, gleaming smugly underneath the taps in the shower.

Five minutes later the hot water cut out and the alarms again cut in, and Gerald remembered, with somewhat uncharitable thoughts, the Stage Three button waiting for him next to the toaster.
