    Smile What's she got to get up for?

    Hello. Would you please tell me what the underlined sentence means in this context?
    Thank you.

    ----------------
    It's six in the morning, the only person likely to be up is Nose Nelly.
    I wonder why she bothers though. I mean, what's she got to get up for?
    All she does is sit in her flat all day, spying on people.

    Re: What's she got to get up for?

    She does nothing all day except sit in her flat. So why does she need to get up early? She does not have a job to go to or a social activity to attend. She has no reason to get up early = she has nothing to "get up for."
