Grizzly Bear

It’s 3:30 a.m. You should be blissfully asleep. Instead you’re wide eyed awake because of the snoring coming from the bear that is inside your roommate. You’re pretty sure that every time your roommate inhales the whole building rattles.


Talk to your roomie
It’s going to be a long year if you don’t deal with this problem soon, so here are a few tips to help you get some uninterrupted shut eye. Maybe they don’t know they snore, maybe they do. Either way, they know now. If they’re considerate they’ll try and do something about it. Small changes like sleeping on your side can prevent snoring. You could also drop a subtle hint by buying him/her nose strips.

Go on the defense

If your roommate continues to snore like an untamed lion, retreat and try to block out the cruel world that is your life. Buy earplugs. Buy enough to start

Earplugsyour own ear plug store. Stock up and use them every night. If earplugs aren’t your thing, then try headphones. Play some soothing music or ambient noise that’ll help you get to sleep. Actually play whatever you want. We don’t care, as long as it helps you sleep. If you’re really desperate, grab some sleep aid pills. Just try not to make a habit of it.

Last Resort: Go on the offensive

Nothing is working, you’re still wide awake and your roommate is still snoring like fricken Poomba from the Lion King. It’s time to attack. Remember your nerf gun from middle school? It’s time to put those skills to use. Keep a Nerf gun by your bed. When your roommate starts snoring, take a potshot. Aim for the forehead,Airhornhopefully it’ll cause him to roll over and stop snoring. If that doesn’t work, get out of bed and give them a shake. If you can’t sleep, neither should your roommate. If your roommate is still snoring then go to the last resort: an airhorn. If you can’t sleep, then no one in your building should either, until your roommate stops causing earthquakes that transcend continents.
