For those of us who aren't morning people, fighting off the last vestiges of dream land and actually extricating ourselves from our beds can be a monumental task.

Nothing is worse than when you've just laid down and gotten comfortable and realize you've forgotten something (usually turning the light off). This can lead to quite a bit of ingenuity when figuring out how to get things done without having to actually get back up and out of bed.


Reddit user u/kingfiish asked:

"What's the laziest thing you've ever done because you were too cosy to get out of bed?"

I used to keep a large stick near my bed I'd use to close the door

Shot ~10 nerf darts at my light switch, from bed. Missed all of them and slept with the lights on.

Since I'm too lazy to even try throwing some stuff at the switch to turn on/off the light, I bought a Google Home Mini and a bulb that connects to Wifi, so I just have to say "Okay google, turn on (or off) the light" from my bed

Straight up rolled over and peed into a Gatorade bottle. I had been up 41 hours prior to going to sleep, and couldn't bring myself to get up to pee.

I ordered tacos from uber eats. I paid $13 for 3 tacos when I couldve walked 2 blocks and paid $6. No ragrets.

Called my dog to my room, tied the charger my mom wanted to my dog's collar, told her to call him to her so he could deliver it for me.

I don't know if anyone else has said it but whenever I was younger I tried as hard as I could to use "The Force" so I didn't have to get up and grab the remote

My dog is trained to bring me things by name. She'll get me blankets, medication, the remote, water, and fruit snacks.

It took months for her to learn each thing by name but extremely worth it.

Finished a homework assignment in my room, then called my mom (who was in the our office) from my phone and asked her to turn on the printer and bring me the assignment.

If I'm too lazy to roll over to see the television screen behind me I just open the front facing camera on my phone and use that to watch it instead

My roommate and I arranged our dorm room to be "lazy-capable." One person was able to reach the mini fridge and light switch from his bed, and the other could reach the the window and AC/ heat from his bed....

.... we never fought again.

This one time my rabbits ran out of food. I had the money to get more and a car to go get it in, but I just wasn't feeling so hot.

So I ordered a large salad from the local pizza joint and had it delivered.

Happy rabbits.

I installed remote desktop app solely of the purpose that I can turn off my computer from my bed via my phone.

I took a class in college (private school, required course) called "Personal Responsibility." I slept through the final.

I have a dog and a cat, and I HATE sleeping with the door open. Sometimes dog wants to sleep in the bedroom, sometimes dog wants to sleep outside the bedroom. But he never decides until I'm comfy in bed. Solution? Keep a laser pointer on my nightstand. Once dog decides where he's sleeping, I'll shine the laser pointer on the door so that my cat paws it closed. It has now become a routine that my cat will wait by the door for the laser before laying down.

When I was a kid, I had a bunk bed. I would sleep on the top bunk. I was also an avid reader, so I would stay up late reading most nights. Now, being on the top bunk, there weren't many options for light other than the regular overhead fixture. No place to put a lamp, really. I absolutely hated getting up, climbing down the ladder, turning off the overhead light, and climbing back up in the dark. One day my friend and I invented a system of pulleys that ran a string from my light switch, down to the carpet (attached to the fibers with a safety pin), back to the ceiling, across the ceiling, and finally ending hanging directly above my pillow. With one tug, I could turn the light off from my bed! It didn't turn the light on, but that didn't matter. It was a lot of work to build, simply to avoid getting out of bed.

Came home and tripped in the doorway, falling flat on the floor. I kicked the door shut with my foot and fell asleep for three hours.

-HonchoMinerva

There's a level of resignation to fate here that I'm strangely comfortable with.

Thrown random objects at the light switch to try to turn it off

I recorded my voice saying, "QUIET!" and played it through the receiver in the living room to hush my dogs.

Ordered pizza from my phone and had my friend come over the exact same time so he could bring the pizza to me

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
