Daylight Savings time

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I completely forgot about it this morning.....

I was looking at my comp clock, then went in to the kitchen and noticed they were an hour slow.

So for those who do observe DST....don't forget, your clocks should be set an hour ahead today.

I had no idea it was daylight savings time till my husband called me 30 mins ago and told me he was an hour late for work because of the daylight savings.

I did the exact same thing.

Actually, I forgot until I saw the title of your thread. I saw it, looked at my computer clock, which said 9:30 and then was like "oh no, it's 10:30." Then I looked at my other clocks, which say 8:30 and remembered that the computer clock automatically adjusts.

I live in a place where we didn't used to observe DST and I absolutely hate it! I did remember that time changed last night but I hate that we observe it now and it also drive me nuts that the dates when time changes have been moved now too. I have one VCR/DVD combo that changes time on it own... but on the wrong dates so I have to change it manually twice or live with it on the wrong time for weeks.

LOL.... I did that one year, because I forgot whether I was supposed to go ahead or go behind an hour.

My ma called me from work, I was still sleeping... and asked me if I was coming to work...and I said of course, at whatever the time was... I still got 2hrs or something like that.

Yah I had set the clock back an hour instead of forward LMAO. My boss wasn't angry, in fact they all had a good laugh about it at my expense

Yeah, these things are pretty common, especially in the Spring. In the Fall, people tend to show up early for work, church, or whatever. I know that my friend who sings in his church choir was worried that they wouldn't have enough people to sing because a lot of them would show up an hour late. I'll see if he was right when he comes over for dinner tonight.

As for me, I'm really looking forward to the time change. I typically leave work (or the health club at work anyway) between 6 and 7. Having sunlight really changes the drive home from "man, this is really depressing" to "ahh, what a pleasant and relaxing drive." In the morning, it's just the opposite. Getting to work before the sun comes up makes me feel like I'm really getting a jump on the day.

You know, I figure that about 50% of the population won't hear about the end of the world until the next day, since announcements about daylight savings time have been everywhere, on the news, on the work bulletin board, even on the light-up road signs!

I HATE daylight savings time!!!

Why do they always have to screw with my sleep????

I'm going to be tired until they give me back my hour in the fall. And I'll still be tired after I get my hour back, because it will take the cats a couple of months to adjust back to standard time, and not wake me up an hour early for breakfast!!!

Okay, rant over. Carry on.

It really makes no difference to me one way or the other. It's only an hour - no biggie.

I always remember it as spring forward, fall back. I love not driving home from work in the dark and having more daylight in the evenings.
post #12 of 29
I appreciate more daylight in the evening this time of year, but I do hate when the time changes. It takes me a couple weeks to adjust my body clock. But I'm more of a night-owl than morning person.

Here's an interesting article about daylight savings time.

I think it's changing WAY too early now! Congress said they would try it for a year, and if it didn't show any savings, they would go back to the old time. Research showed no energy savings, but they didn't go back. Nothing is more permanent than a temporary law!

I hate going to work in the dark. It's harder to do a good inspection, etc. I can understand moving it when dawn is at 4 a.m., but even here in the south it will be well after 7 for a while now.

I think Ben Franklin would have a word or two with the Powers That Be if he saw how his invention is being used.

Me neither. My clocks are the computers, several Atomic Clocks and my cell phone. They all set themselves. The only clocks I have to change are the one on the stove, and the one in the car. The clock on the stove I usually don't bother with for a week or two.

I'm so excited about the time change! Summer is on the way!

I actually like when it gets dark early, I find it relaxing.

Same here, it doesn't bother me. Hubby and I remembered. We even reset our clocks before we went to bed so they would be right this morning. Our church even sent us an email reminding us of DST. We go to church at 6pm, so the change didn't affect that for us.

We don't practice Daylight Savings Time here... it would probably drive me nuts!

For some reason, when we switch to dst, my Mom always (and I do mean ALWAYS) starts carrying on about how "now it's fast time." I have no idea what that means! Does times suddenly move faster now? When I ask her she just gives me a funny look. I seriously don't get it.
post #21 of 29
I don't mind DST. It means summer's almost here! WOOHOO!
post #22 of 29
I remembered, my computer clock changed, but my atomic clock never changes when it's supposed to and my cell phone is still an hour behind. Maybe I'll restart it..
post #23 of 29
I set all my clocks last night except for the computer, cell and the DVR which changes automatically.

There were reminders all over where I work so we won't be late tomorrow. But you can just bet there will be some people who forget. LOL
post #24 of 29
Yep, there were reminders all week and I thought about it off and on until last night and completely forgot ....ohh I just remembered the clock in my car
post #25 of 29
A friend of ours has this as his email tagline...

"Daylight Savings Time makes about as much sense as cutting a foot
off the top of a blanket and sewing it to the bottom to make it longer. "

Couldn't agree more.
post #26 of 29
I hate losing an hour sleep in the spring but love getting an extra hour in the fall and yes, I did remember to set my clock ahead, mostly cause I lost power yesterday and had to reset my clock anyway

My DVR/cable box has set reset itself yet though
post #27 of 29
Don't forget this!
post #28 of 29
I didn't even need to worry about it this year. The only clocks I have are my cell phone and my cable box clock, wel and my computer of course, but all of those do it automatically. So I woke up on Sunday without even noticing anything different. Then later I found out it was daylight savings time lol..
