LIFE magazine, November 1970
There's so many things we've grown accustomed to over the years, that we forget we didn't have them back in the 1970's. It's easy to remember a time before cell phones, personal computers, cordless remotes, TiVo and microwaves... but we forget such simple things as the snooze button.
The snooze button is a curse to procrastinators like myself. I typically will press snooze as many times as I can get away with - to the point where I box myself into a corner and have to rush at Mach 3 to get out the door. Early bird Gilligan is not.
