    wake-up call

    I was reading some prepared conversation in a hotel and I read:

    receptionist: would you like a wake-up call.

    guest : yes, I'd like a wake up call for 6:30pm

    Why 'for'? i think, it should be at 6:30?

    Re: wake-up call

    Incidentally 'wake-up call' can be used figuratively as well: The near-defeat by Tonga was a wake-up call for England. They'll have to play a lot better when they meet Australia in the final.
