“Wake up and smell the coffee”

Meaning: To become aware of your surroundings/ reality check

 This one, as far as Straight Outta My Kitchen can tell, originated in a Nescafé ad campaign and was popularized by the late advice columnist Ann Landers began using it in the late 50s when telling a woman that her terminally unemployed son-in-law was just lazy or  her “working late” husband was cheating.  Don’t confuse it with “wake up and smell the roses”  That phrase is actually a mixture of the old standard “stop and smell the roses” and “wake up and smell the coffee.”
