Laws: waking times

There should be laws against having to wake up at any time beginning with a five or less.

This morning, I woke at 5.35am, am now waiting for my 7am three-hour Newcastle-bound train to depart, and it’s still pitch black; and it will be for some time.

This coupled with the exorbitant price of coffee in King’s Cross station (£1.95 for the cheapest large coffee) has put me in a grumpy mood.

    …would you really vote for such a law?

    Absolutely. Would you not?

    no of course not. I would refrain from ever doing it myself, but I absolutely support your right to do it whenever you wish.

    i personally hate getting up before 6 a.m. however, there are loads of jobs that don’t follow the 9-5 model. just think what the state of things would be if no businesses started early, i.e. no freshly baked goods, no one to get up early to make your overpriced coffee, etc…

    OK, the law should be refined. No one whose name begins with D and ends with AN should have to get up before 6am.

    Does that work?

    exactly Elise. Dan, suggest you go and live in France, or some similar socialist paradise.
