It's official: Women more grumpy than men in the morning. Daily Mail
Mabe it's that withering look she gives you as she clatters her coffee cup or perhaps she's just plain snappy, but men have for years bemoaned the perils of early mornings with their better halves. Millions of chaps across the country have come to agree that the best way to avoid the outbreak of World War Three over breakfast is to keep well away until the bad tempered creature that came from beneath the duvet (aka the wife) lightens up a bit. New research has confirmed they have every right to be wary. It found that not only are women grumpier than men first thing, but also that they remain in a foul mood for longer. A survey by The Sleep Council showed a quarter of men never wake up in a bad mood, compared to just one in seven women. And reeling from a sleepless night, caused mainly by stress and worry, 13 per cent of the so-called fairer sex will remain in a bad mood for up to four hours, compared to ten per cent of men.
