Common Expressions And Their Origins, No.13: Waking Up On The Wrong Side Of The Bed

Waking Up On The Wrong Side Of The Bed


Meaning: Waking up in a bad mood


History: The left side of the body or anything having to do with the left was often associated considered sinister. To ward off evil, innkeepers made sure the left side of the bed was pushed against a wall, so guests had no other option but to get up on the right side of the bed.
