Girls Find It Harder To Get Out Of Bed Than Guys

One weekend morning a few months ago, I was driving out of the city towards Klang to meet my friend Boon for a good Bak Kut Teh breakfast. I was supposed to pick him up at Subang Parade and go in my car.

When he hopped in, I asked him
"Oi.. your gf leh?"

And he said
"She's still sleeping. You know I feel that girls always seem to have a harder time getting out of bed than guys".
That's when it struck me.

I thought of someone I had spent time with and it's true. Every morning when I wake up next to her, she's still asleep.

And if I don't intervene to wake her up, the clock will hit 12PM and she'll still be asleep. And believe me, just telling her to "wake up" is not enough to wake her up. First I gotta go turn off the air-con, then pull off the blanket and go make as much noise as I can washing up.

In fact, here's what annoys me the most.

I wake up later than usual when she's around because just when I want to get out of bed and go brush my teeth, she cuddles back into my arms resting her big head on my shoulder and that warm feeling feels soooo good it makes me want to stay in bed.

The next I know I wake up and I'm late for work. Ish... so unproductive!

Then I think back of all the girls I've been with in the past and they're ALL like that. Like getting out of bed in the morning is the most difficult thing they've ever had to do.

(All except one though... who would get up at 6am every morning like clock work. Heck even I can't beat that.)

So do you guys and girls find that to be true or are my cases the exceptions?

cuddle cuddle liddat nice leh!
so warm, soft soft somore.

I agree with you that most females find it harder to get up, but if there's a good reason to get up early, we will zoom through everything oni one.

Dr. Tan said...

Hmmm do we at the company know who is she? hehe

Super Gentleman said...

Haha, this is so true. It takes me really really long to get out of bed. But my boyfriend, when the alarm rings, he gets up immediately. I'll snooze snooze and snooze til my phone can no longer stand the snoozing. HAHA!

Boss Stewie said...

electronicfly: so if there isn't a compelling reason enough to get up then you'll just stay in bed till afternoon?

dr tan: no!

super: hmph!

michelle: haha! i wonder if someone is gonna tell me that the boyfriend si the one that needs to snooze.

electronicfly said...

boss: yes. sometimes it's not becouse I want to continue sleeping, but that it's so comfortable I don't want to move even an inch.

Pwincess Linfoong said...

Hey so not true and stereotyping!!!

Its 5.30am now and im awake ok! but then again its summer and its very bright lar, but still not true ok!!

(feminist alert here!)

>_<"

Elise said...

I beg to differ! Whenever my bf is with me, we both wake up late, but most of the time I still end up waking him...

Boss Stewie said...

pwincess/elise: hahaha okok.. point taken

Perpetually Confused said...

Nahhh i beg to differ, my bf takes a really long time to wake up, when we were both staying together, he snoozes n snoozes, sometimes even sleeping right through the numerous alarms. Even if he wakes up, he takes his time to stay in bed before finally get up, and its even worse in winter! Whereas for me, I get up immediately once the alarm rings!

Boss Stewie said...

perpetually: hahahaha ok ok... i've put up a poll to see what people think

Ishihara-kun said...

Noo... I wake up within 2 seconds when the alarm rings ><
Perpetually confused: IAWTC!!

Kah Yin said...

haha, beg to differ too. i find it HARD to wake him' up. such a pig. each time when i try, this is what he says.. '5 mins'

brrr..

Cely said...

Definitely GUYS! Blek! Snooze for one hour still dowan to wake up.

MaN|acZ said...

you can do like to this...
let's say you want to wake up at 7.10am... set your phone alarm at 6.30am..
so when you wake up, re-set it at 7.10am...

haha...
that's how I do it every weekday.

Paul Tan said...

she's usually out of the bed a good 2 hours before me. lol

ahlost said...

Not true not true..

It's very hard to wake up my bros =.= Even if air cond has been switched off.. They still don't wanna wake up =.=

Philip Pang said...

what about snoring huh? Like really loud.

RAWRRRR phiewww... x100000000..

...

jessbabe said...

I think it depends.

In your case, it is because your girl wants to spend more time sleeping right next to you.

Just like how I like to intimate with my boyfriend if he is asleep right next to me. Other than that, I'll wake up at 8am.

Robb said...

i think it depends on individual. :)

pinkpau said...

MARTIAN IS JUST LIKE YOU. ALWAYS TURN OFF THE AIR CON. I HATE THAT I HATE THAT IT'S A VERY CRUEL WAY TO WAKE PEOPLE UP T______T

why u say her head big! hahaha your pacmee very cute

Jyushiang Tay said...

Oosh. Next time when you come to Klang, do invite me along I live here :D Which Bak Kut Teh restaurant?

MuFFy said...

i agree with PINKPAU.. people who TURN OFF THE AIRCON are MEAN! that is a very mean way of waking people up okay!

CrazyLobster said...

Switching off a/c + drawing curtains + taking away blanket = height of cruelty :P

Melvin said...

haha my gf will say the exact opposite... almost impossible for me to get up earlier than her haha!

Boss Stewie said...

Ishihara: what’s IAWTC?

Kah yin: haha 5 minutes… I’ve heard that time and time again before

Cely: har! Sure or not!!!

Maniacz: by the time you reset it, won’t you be awake then
Paul: ohh… ohh… haha.. I guess the girls I’ve been with are the exceptions
Ahlost: try pulling off the blanket. That works too

Philip: hahah…I don’t snoreee…

Jess: awww… no lar I think in my case, she just wants to sleep

Robb: hmm ok dude

Pinkpau: hahahaha but it’s effective

Jyushiang: actually I eat at one that is right before we reach klang
Muffy: hahahaa! Poor u

Crazylobster: hahahahah but IT WORKS!!!

Melvin: hahaha okok faair enough!

Jyushiang Tay said...

I think I know where. It's nearby this huge building right? Somewhere a bit off the Klang toll. Taman Intan?

exryos said...

haha actually it's harder for girls to wake up only if we don't have an alarm clock.
at least through experience :P i never wake up early if there's no alarm.

luxen said...

I must be living in the wrong time zone, I sleep at 3AM and wake up at 10AM

Peggy said...

i totally agree with su ann, muffy and crazy lobster! some people use really cruel tactics to get people put of bed. my mom does that to me ALL the time when i am at home. :(

but i have to agree with you as well tim. girls take longer to get out of bed. ok, most girls.
i can sleep through out my alarm and keep snoozing forever. the longest i have snoozed on was for about 5 hours or so. my friend thinks im crazy for being able to withstand the mobile's alarm+vibration every 10 minutes!

KY said...

martian still doing that or is he the EX now su ann!

Boss Stewie said...

jyushiang: eh i don't remember a big building around it but it's shortly after the klang toll.

exryos: hahahaha okok! understood

luxen: that's 7 hours sleep. Not too much to ask for :P

peggy: hahahaha!! lol lol.... I think if I had five 10 minute vibrations I would be wide away

ky: eh!

RealGunners said...

my sis would occasionally ask me to wake her up 8am the next morning,

so 8am the next morning, i would yell beside her/switch of air cond/open curtain/take her blanket away/turn on the radio.. and she would either not budge, or scold me for disturbing her sleep..

then i'll leave her alone, she'll wake up at 9am, make a great fuss, and scold me again, for not waking her up on time and now she's late for a gathering ot something..

Ishihara-kun said...

Boss Stewie: IAWTC = I Agree With The Comment.

Yorusama said...

Forbidden Tales said...

No, its not true, I wake up as soon as the alarm start ringing, but I need my more-than-1-hour-nap everyday after 3 pm haha. So uhh basically gals need more sleep haha

linsey said...

NOT TRUE!
*hmmmph

Cheng Chun said...

Boss, I also got guy friends who just sleep through anything earthquakes you name it. You should know some of them. :P

Though I think the best is just throw cold water. Finish already. No need to cuddle here and there ler. :P

synical said...

Personally, I'm one of those people.

For the most part because I'm a light sleeper and sleeping through the night's pretty difficult - by the time I reach deep sleep, it's time to wake up :P

People who've a hard time waking are usually in deep sleep.

Huei said...

it's just ur case..the only way to wake up my bf is threaten to throw a tantrum! wahahhha otherwise the alarm can ring for an entire hour before he even realizes it's ringing!

my fren's husband's worst. she gets hit at (not too harshly) when she tries to wake him up.

MEN R PIG! =P

Ping Ping said...

Jeffro said...
