A logic puzzle for those who enjoy such things ...

Here's the scenario, there are two people in a bed, in the wee small hours of the morning, one of these people is asleep, you can tell this because he is gently snoring. The other person is awake and not happy being so. In essence we have one bed with a sleeping efficiency rating of 50% and a grumpiness quotient of 50%.

In such a situation, if you are the grumpy non-sleeper which makes most sense?

A - To maintain the status quo and try to go to sleep yourself, despite the gentle but deeply reassuring susurration of your spouse?
or
B - To wake the sleeper, increasing the grumpiness quotient to 100%, (the maximum possible in most bed-based situations) and causing a sleep efficiency score of 0% to be recorded ?

I suggest that if your answer is B you are either,

1 - Mrs Stuffy
and/or
2- An envious and selfish person with an emotional and totally illogical approach to the business of getting some shut-eye.

I've lived with it for years, and only occasionally had to go off planet to get away from the noise. What can Mrs Stuffy be thinking?
