Who else hates the daylight saving time change

Post by Jeepsnguns »

I hate the daylight saving time change with a passion.
The last couple of years I changed the time back on Friday night to get a jump on it, so the following Monday at work wouldn't be so painful.
This year I'm trying something different.
Yesterday afternoon around 5:00 PM I turned my clocks ahead 20 min., 20 min loss isn't too painful.
Today around the same time I did another 20 min.
And tomorrow I'll push my clocks 20 min again.
Just sharing in the hopes it helps someone else cope with the time change craziness.
I maybe should have posted this yesterday!!!

I should clarify that it's not daylight savings time so much as messing with the clocks.
Pick a fucking time, I dont care, just pick a time and be done with it.
Lets just stop the back and forth bullshit.

It’s a love hate relationship. I love it getting dark at 8:30 instead of 6 pm. But I will hate driving to work in the dark on Monday morning. GARY.

The only annoyance I have with it is re-setting my wrist and car clocks. Other than that, I understand why we keep it.

That. I need a engineering manual to reset my F-ing G shock.

Move to Arizona, that state doesn't eff with time changing.
I might go there when Andrew Gillum gets elected to Rubio's senate seat of governor of Florida.

How good an idea daylight savings time is depends on where you live.
Longer days and lasting daylight makes more sense where the sun is weaker.
The last thing we need down here is longer hotter summer days.
It's probably more appreciated in Scotland and Norway.

It should stay standard time, called standard time for a reason. Sun at meridian is noon. That’s it. No, everything does not have to be twisted around “for the children.”
