Alright guys, picture this, it's the middle of the night, you're sound asleep next to your spouse or girlfriend and then all of a sudden out of nowhere a strange noise awakens you!

Okay, really chances are it was your significant other that woke you up, because you sleep like the dead. Regardless, what do you do?

Would you nudge your wife or girlfriend to say did you hear that? Or do you get up and investigate the noise yourself?

According to a new survey from Female First, one out of five men are happy to let their wife or girlfriend grab the baseball bat next to the bed and check out those spooky noises in the middle of the night.

40% of men say they let their lady go play Sherlock Holmes because they know there's nothing to worry about. But, there are that 10% of guys out there that evidently are total wusses and make their woman go because they're too scared to check out the big bad noise themselves.

Those are probably the same guys that still check under the bed each night before they go to sleep.

So, what are the most common things waking us up in the middle of the night?

Generally, its noises from car alarms, cats fighting, snoring, thunder and heavy rain. Fortunately it's not the dude wearing the hockey mask hiding in the closet!
