The first alarm clock with a snooze button came out in 1959.  And whoever came up with the idea was obviously a GENIUS . . . but they've also stolen about six months of your LIFE.


According to a new study, the average person spends 14 minutes a day hitting snooze.  That's about 1 hour and 38 minutes a week if you count weekends . . . or just under 85 hours a YEAR.


And if you factor in life expectancy, it means you'll waste somewhere around 173 DAYS of your life hitting snooze.


The survey also found the average person gets 6 hours and 36 minutes of sleep a night, sets their alarm for 6:58 A.M., and finally gets out of bed at 7:12.  And about one-third of people now use their PHONE as their alarm clock.
