und aus dem Chaos kam eine Stimme, und die Stimme sprach zu mir
"Lächle und sei fröhlich, denn es könnte schlimmer kommen."
und ich lächelte und war fröhlich
und es kam schlimmer.

There are a lot of bad excuses for oversleeping, but I think I have found the most stupid: My alarm clock crashed.

Well, to be honest, I use an Android app, and it crashed for some strange reason. In the future, I will use my single-purpose alarm-clock again and find other reasons to oversleep.

However, if you think about it, this is not even a first world problem anymore. It is a problem that goes into the digital world, the world where new SciFi-like technology rules - let us call it the zeroth world.

It is everywhere where fast (mobile) internet is available, and where everybody has a smartphone and a tablet and communicates through it.

I have just had a real zeroth-world-problem.
