No Fucking Excuses


Night Owl, Morning Lark thats me. My usual routine at night is to go to bed on average about 12:30am and in between and that time and lets say 6am most likely my girls will wake up looking for me or I have to use the bathroom. I average Id say 5-6 hours sleep. Still you wont find me in a bad mood or cranky because of it. Dont get me wrong, Im not chirpy or acting like Ive done a few lines coke for breakfast I dont spring from bed, full of vim and vigor, or wax eloquently on the beauty of the breaking of dawn, Im civil, even keeled and yes tired but for all my tiredness I will be able to manage a sincere smile and just get on with things. Suolas is a nightmare to wake up and needs about 20 mins to function properly, which I dont mind at all - theres the distinct difference hes not an early riser, I can live with that. But the other individuals who claim they dont do mornings sound like they just like to spite themselves and the people surrounding them here lies the crux of my pet peeve.


I have lived and worked with a few people who claim they are 'not a morning person' and quite frankly theres no excuse for it. Put it this way, they said that they are still waking up and dont want to talk much etc etc I can live with that for about 10 - 20 minutes or so but how much wake up time do you fucking need? Now if they where told that they had just won a dream holiday or cash sum upon awakening, where would that cranky/sleepy mood be then? Out the fucking door leaving their host smiling and in good spirits like any other decent human being- is that what it takes for you self centred fucks to be civil? Anne Marie (the infamous biohazard flatmate in the uk) was one of these people. I would say good morning to her and she would grunt, I would offer to make her a coffee and she would just take it without thanks (BTW this didnt last long me making her a cuppa)and find the worst in everything that was wrong with the world/house/her life. If there was a vase of wildflowers on the table, she would ask could she move them as they where too cheerful looking at the table for that hour of the morning (I would have gladly shoved them up her arse) and then there was a paramour Nick, who was an absolute arsehole for the first two hours of the morning,tutting kicking the odd kitchen chair out of his way, throwing his coffee cup into the sink from a distance and all because quote unquote 'couldnt be arsed with mornings', and this was very much the reason why I didnt have him stay over with me anymore.



Its very much like the morning after scenario where the drunkard for whatever reason finds themselves in trouble, the excuse is shoveled out like the bullshit it is 'I was drunk at the time'. Bollox if your best friend had the shit beat out of them in front of you , you would soon sober the hell up. It ruins the atmosphere for the morning, sets the person up in the firing line to a shitty start and then by lunchtime the jekyl hyde syndrome has settled and they are back to themselves and youre supposed to act like nothings happened?? If you people who 'dont do mornings/ not morning people' you are obviously aware on how bad tempered and ill fucking mannered you are and hide behind the thin veneer of the excuse 'Im not a morning person'. If you dont want to be around people put your jacket on, go for a walk and come back when you have woken up and in a better mood.

Bravo! Thank you for saying it! I am not a morning person. I do not wake up well. I don't go to bed well either. I average similar to you. bed about midnight up about 7am. (a little more than you)

I see a beautiful sunrise out my window, a huggable little boy cuddling up. Then my husband brings me a cup of coffee in bed and turns on the TV to the news.

WHAT is not to like about the mornings when I am treated to such wonderful things??? Now, do I get all this because of years of being a morning ogre? Maybe. But I'm not such an ogre these days. And when my babies were very young like yours I got less sleep and enjoyed them in the mornings still.

Well, I'm definitely not a morning person and my brain really does take a while to get going. the more tired I am, the longer it takes, but I am generally not bad tempered, just sluggish and fuzzy. I bump into things a lot and make silly mistakes. But teaching meant I had to get my act together. It's do-able, it's just not easy or pleasurable. But I'm with you on those who use it as an excuse to be twattish.

I don't love the mornings by any means. I am about to get married and have a baby, my fiance and I just moved to our first home together and he is driving me crazy. He works from home with me so he is home all day... but for some reason, he loves to get all the household stuff done right before bed, the time of night that I am trying to slow my body down by reading or surfing the net. He likes to do it all at bed and I like to do it all in the mornings. He's driving me CRAZY because it completely disrupts my sleep schedule and it equally frustrates him because he feels I'm not pulling my share of the house work. He has horrible problems with his sleeping, I think its because he has bad habits doing his most active work at 12:30 at night. This is a time of night that should be spent unwinding, not running around the house. He feels the same way as me, that I am the one with the bad habits of going to bed without the house being perfectly together. Plus we just moved four days ago.
