Thank- you Jeeves, that will be all,
150 different recordings to be specific. An example
(birdsong) Ahem (quiet polite cough) Excuse me Madame, I am afraid it is morning again, quite inconvenient I agree, but it has something to do with the Earth's rotation, and cannot be stopped I am told.
And it is gender Binary! you have to buy a whole different clock if you want "Sir' to be awakened rather than "Madame" It is fabulously classist - who has't always wanted to be gently awakened by a man servant. It provdes temptation to grandiosity, and pride. He flatters and cajoles to get you to rise. I am sure that he prevaricates. And sloth - OMG - the snooze button puts the next alarm off for a FULL HOUR.
And then it got spooky.
This morning's greeting - and I quote precisely
" Good Morning, Madame, blah, blah, blah french blah (ok not so precise) - 'If only the young knew, or the old were able.' We must not complain about getting older, as many do not have the option. "
Yes, this on my birthday. Jeeves knew.
I think this is going to change my whole attitude about mornings.
