Do you like turning the time an hour ahead for Daylight Savings Time?

I hate it. I think we should stay at the same time all year long because it gets confusing. For example: for a third shift employee who has to work Saturday nights, Do they get to go home an hour early for spring ahead and do they have to stay an hour late for fall back.

I don't mind it. I love the feeling I got today when it was still light out at 7:30, so that's a good bonus. I hate turning them back, just because we have so many clocks in my house.

I think that we should eliminate standard time and switch to the Daylight Savings hours throughout the whole year. Because the fact is, the human species has adopted a lifestyle in which they like to stay up later, and we kinda dig it when it doesn't get dark so damn early. Plus, it's good for the economy and environment, since it shortens the hours during which excess electrical energy needs to be expended on lighting.

Uh, what else would you do as someone that works during the time that the clocks change? An hour either way isn't going to make or break your life.

The whole daylight thing doesn't really matter that much to me, I just prefer that it's still dark outside when I'm trying to go to sleep (which it rarely is).

Word. I often bolt an hour early whether there's any DST or not. Holler.

I miss the days of being able to get away with that (aka the days of being able to get away with not going to work at all).

It's cool when you travel but we don't have DLS

Did you get a real job??



I couldn't care less either way. And one hour once a year? Who gives a fuck? Wow. I've been in that situation, too. I don't remember how it worked, but I really didn't care.

It's just one hour, It's not like your entire biological clock is going to get messed up by it.

Well, some people are pissed off. I don't know if it's more of a psychical issue.

But do you seriouslly think that it's a good reason to get worked up about? I don't.

I like it. Cause if we didn't set it an hour ahead, we wouldn't set it an hour back either and there goes that one extra hour of sleep once a year.

I like it because of the longer day thing.
