Thank you. That is an actual helpful tip.


yep this was the move with lazy siblings


Wish I’d know this in college when my roommates alarm would go off and his door would be locked


This does not work on most Android devices. The alarm just starts again. Also, if it did work, it would be really devious to call an ex right when you know their alarm is going off and just give it a quick 1 ring. They’d be late to work every day you called until they blocked your number.
