Have you ever been awaken by your own snore?

sleeping and snoring in the car - awakened by snoring

Let me paint this hypothetical situation: there was this guy, driving on the interstate. He was visiting some companies that involved long driving. He didn’t get enough sleep the night before, so he was very tired and sleepy. He found a Rest Area along the highway, so he pulled in, to get some rest and avoid any accidents on the road. After parking, he dozed off. Suddenly, he was awakened by a loud snore-like sound. There was nobody else in the car, so it must have been his. Remember, this is a hypothetical scenario (still, wouldn’t admit to it!). So, have you ever had this experience? Or are you the type who still wouldn’t admit to snoring while sleeping? C’mon admit it!

lol...no, I have never been awakened by my own snore. I have been awakened by childbirth though. I woke up at 4am in the morning on my hands and knees saying "ouch!"

Hello buggles64. It's hard to make a mental picture of what you just wrote. Althought the last word is what I would normally associate with childbirth, "ouch". Thanks for dropping by.

still haven't .Not by my own snore. Awaken by my sisters because of my snore maybe. She's like, Hey! sis, your forgot to eat before going to bed , here's your flip flops! boom! on my mouth,... And yes. we are still on a hypothetical setting.

Oh what a wonderful sister! And I'm thinking this is at night? To come up with that line after being disturbed in her sleep, must have taken some patience and quick thinking! Hypothetically of course.

Hello cher913. I guess my hypothetical situation could also be considered a nose issue. And it was also an afternoon, not at night. Thanks.

Sounds like my kid. When he sleeps besides me, he also snores. I also get used to it, but sometimes I wake up because it is so high-pitched. I move him around to get him to stop snoring, but sometimes he wakes up. And then I also feel bad. Thanks Prof!

It has never happened to me in my own car, but it is something that I have had happen to me (and I don't snore) Most of the time whenever this has happened to me it is when I am taking a nap during the day and I'm not really in a deep sleep, I'm in that sort of stage of sleep where I can hear everything that is going on around me but I'm really not able to respond to my surroundings.

I'd like to say that I was also in that state, half-asleep. But I definitely remember looking at (car)clock and seeing time had passed. And yes, I don't snore either. And this was a hypothetical situation.

It can really be embarrassing. you hear someone snoring and realize that it is you. when this happens to me,I usually look around to see if anyone else has noticed that I was snoring. If i'm caught, I try to laugh it off. you have to be able to laugh at yourself.

Thankfully, when it happened to me, I was alone in the car. I didn't have to laugh it off, but I was really surprised. That I did it to myself! It was funny, in a way. Thanks.

I have never been awaken by my own snore... but i know 2 people who have, one person more than the other. My mum occasionally snores as wakes herself up but very rarely and generally only when she has a bad cold. My wifes mum is the worst though as my wife said when she lived with her parents her mum snored really loud every night and always woke herself up at some point in the night.... sounds quite funny to me.

Of course, I would pass it off as funny too! How else would I get away from the embarassment? But, I could see that happening. If someone has a bad cold, and was trying to sleep with a clogged nose, the snore would definitely wake him or her up. Thanks.

No or I can't remember but ask me about the snore hog I have that lays besides me every night. OMG.. who can sleep.

Haha! It's even worse, when that snore hog is myself! Normally I wouldn't notice it, but I guess when I am really really tired, I could even wake myself up. Oh wait! Did I say 'I'? I meant somebody else!
