Morning People

To all morning people: fuck you.

I don't mean that in a mean way, but for cryin' out loud, I am not a morning person. I'm grumpy and take a while to wake up. It's nothing personal, but don't you dare tell me to just "snap out of it". If you're a morning person, the odds are that you have no idea what it's like for us "non-morning" people. You have no idea how grumpy we are, how we need to take our time waking up, and how we're not going to jump out of bed with boundless enthusiasm.

This is not a simple matter of "snapping out of it". We're wired differently and if you don't like it, we're going to hide your body in a dumpster somewhere.

going to??? *whistling*

yeah, fuck those morning Jesusesesesesseses.
You lazy fucks, stop holding up the rest of us, especially if we're all planned to go out somewhere and we need to go early.

Late people are really annoying, telling us to "hang on" or "wait until I've had my coffee". Us morning people hate waiting around, there's shit to do, life to live - not waiting around to die.
Hey, coffee is important. Not dis the glorious miracle of creation that is coffee. I'd do even less work if I didn't have coffee to fuel me!
i'm in no way a morning person, but i like to have my afternoons free, so i find myself in the office at 6am.

the good part of this (besides the obvious getting the hell out of here at a reasonable hour) is that i'm able to have my coffee, bang out the stupid grunt work that keeps me down, and get ready for when the rest of them come in all cheerful and morningy.


As a side note. One of the reasons I will refuse a job the makes me work business hours as opposed to IT hours is I can't function that early. 9 is pushing it. I wouldn't even entertain the idea of working a job that required me to be in any earlier because I know my job performance (among other negative effects in my life) would suffer. Luckily, in my 14 yrs of IT, it hasn't been an issue.

Believe me, "some morning people" know... :-)

Is that a threat?
After years of having a sleep disorder, I am definitely NOT a morning person. Though I am not grouchy but I am not very awake or coherent either. I dislike when morning people don't understand. It'd be no different if we shot them a snotty comment for getting tired early in the evening (which morning people commonly do).
AMEN to that!
my mother used to be a morning person. she would just bounce out of bed any hour and be raring to go.

My brother and i would both discuss who has going to tie her up and duct tape her mouth closed till we had a chance to come to...of course that was done in a series of grows and some pointing since neither of us could quite put thoughts to words at that early in the morning.I am still that way.
I'm a morning, mid-day, evening, and night person. What'll you do to me? haha. just snap out of it, you little grump (-;

You rock.

I am also not a morning person. Never have been. I am trying to train myself to do yoga in the morning before work. This is taking a huge effort. I am still trying it out. Warren, who snaps out of bed at sunrise, even on vacation or the weekends, doesn't know what to do with me.
Thank you bro! I got lucky, my new work hours are 12 noon to 8pm! Woohoo!

Early one morning

I woke early one morning.
The earth lay cool and still
when suddenly a tiny bird
perched on my window sill.

He sang a song so lovely,
so carefree and so gay,
that slowly all my troubles
began to slip away.

He sang of far off places,
of laughter and of fun.
It seemed his very trilling
brought up the morning sun.

I stirred beneath the covers,
crept slowly out of bed,
then gently lowered the window
and crushed his fucking head.

I’m not a morning person.
