    Quite simply, why would "getting out the wrong side of bed" make somebody moody? I don't get why it would. :confused::o

    Because if his or her bed is against a wall, they wake up and dive head first into the wall, perhaps.

    Are you autistic or something? It's a figure of speech, not to be taken literally.

    Now if you were getting out the wrong bed than you would worry, & probably be moody. lol

    That makes sense. :)
    I know, but I'd like to know how it came about. Sayings always have backgrounds to them.
    No less autistic than you for making personal insults.

    Excessive to say the least, I have an autistic nephew and besides one or two slight shows you wouldnt know if you werent told. So insulting to both Basmic and autistic people. Nice.

    Anyway, I never understood this phrase either. How it came about would be interesting and what it orignally meant would be enlightening.

    If i get out of the wrong side of my bed, i'd have to walk all the way round it to get out of the room. That'd annoy me :)

    I can't say I'm offended. I'm more annoyed that he's got the balls to say it. I'm beginning to see why the Scotch are so disliked.

    Oh and I'm 50% Scottish blood, but English born - so I have every right to say that.

    I guess that 50% isn't enough for you to know that Scotch is a drink :o

    Autistic people can have trouble with sayings like that, it's not an insult, I was just trying to understand why you're having trouble understanding a simple phrase.
    lol

    I only lived in Fraserburgh for 7 years. AFAIK, Scotch is an abbreviated word for Scottish.

    Isn't it "Scots?" Or a "Scotsman".

    As Scotch is a drink.
