As Britney Spears once eloquently stated on the set of the “Sometimes” video, “I’m not a morning person.” And yet, she still dragged her body to that windy beach to dance like a slave to the wage, and you know why? Because she was getting paid adequately to rise before eleven on a weekday.
For normals subjected to the harsh conditions of being office workers, however, the emotional and financial compensation for rising early can hardly be deemed worthy of the dark circles, non-functionality and slow motor reflexes that stem from waking before your time. Thus, the only real reason to be a morning person is if you’re famous and your makeup artist can actually make you appear as someone who didn’t get up at an inhumane hour. Otherwise, you’re better off working the graveyard shift, which at least calls working what it is.
