For those who hate mornings, each day starts with its own set of trials and tribulations. But you’re not alone in the struggle against the sunrise. Here are 10 things only people who hate mornings will understand.

The Snooze Button is Your Best Friend and Worst Enemy

Every morning, the snooze button offers you a few more precious minutes of sleep. It's a love-hate relationship where the snooze button is both a savior and a perpetual enabler of your morning misery.
