It's time to switch to Daylight Saving time already.

This means that if you live in a part of the US (and Canada, I think) that hasn't opted out of DST, you need to set your clocks AHEAD one hour tonight before you go to bed as DST takes effect at 2am Sunday (which suddenly becomes 3 am) March 8, 2009.

And what is really amazing is that when you have to set your clocks back, nobody is an hour early to work because they forgot to set their clocks, but it is amazing how many people are late because they forgot to set their clocks when they switch forward.

"forgot to set my clock" is code for "beat the snot out of my alarm clock with a baseball bat when it went off at some ungodly hour" I think. Cheesy

or is it just me that wants to do that? Wink

But you would think they would be early to work in the fall, for the same reason they are late to work in the spring, but no, it doesn't work that way.

So here we are sitting there waiting for the next shift to come in.  Ok, we are an hour short, but we work 9 hours in the fall and do they come in early, nooooo.

It's not just you.  My softball bat has been removed to the outside storage shed for my alarm clock's continued well being.  I hate this idiocy of changing the clocks twice a year.    Angry

I wish I had of seen this post last night.

I woke up this morning at 7:30 (or so I thought) and thought oh good I don't have to take the dog out until 8 so I can laze here for half an hour. My husband wakes up and tells me that it's 8:30, not 7:30. So I jump out of bed going oh crap I have to take the dog out...to which he reminds me that the dog didn't know that the clocks had changed.

I hate it all the more for having lived without it for so long and then being forced into it.  I did just fine without it before, thankyouverymuch, and would like to go back to doing just fine without it again.

If Wikipedia is to be trusted, that would be William Willett, who was very concerned about how much of the summer day his fellow citizens were wasting by sleeping in, and who also wanted to be able to stay out later playing golf.

Cheesy Well, now I know who to thank.  Do we really need to reset our physical clocks?  I like the way my internal clock resets with the changing seasons.

Is it that time again already?

...I didn't even notice until I saw this thread. Then I looked over and saw that my alarm clock is an hour behind my laptop (which sets automatically).

Well we have another week or two before this torture is inflicted on us in the UK. It takes me weeks to adjust.

My body doesn't mind too much. I get up with the sunrise either way. I do mind. I rather like having a good bit of time in the mornings between waking up and having to be at class. Having an hour of that suddenly disappear is really annoying...
