DST?

Keep DST. I don't even notice it because my digital clocks set themselves.

Keep DST. I like resetting my clocks twice per year. I have to wind them anyway.

Daylight Savings Time
« on: October 20, 2016, 08:36:17 pm »
I seriously have no idea why we have DST, but it pisses me off twice per year. If there is a single industry or religion that would like to throw their daily schedule off by an hour twice per year, then how about they change the numbers on their schedules, rather than changing time, itself?

DST makes me happy in the summer and sad in the winter, or is it the opposite. Either way, keep that shit.

Really, it's only the digital and analog/digital ones I have to reset, and whatever mechanical watch I'm wearing that day. I don't have a winder anymore, so I let my mechanical watches run down when I'm not wearing them.

All of my watches are dead. I haven't worn a watch since I was a truck driver.

DST wasn't created for farmers.  Farmers don't work a standard shift.  They have always tailored their working hours to the available daylight and the agriculture industry generally opposes DST.  It was created to serve those in more industrious trades, working standard "9-5s".  The practice is most beneficial to retailers and the tourism sector.

This is what the time change does to people. I went to Walfart today to get some damn groceries, like an idiot. I hate that place, but anyway. As I'm about to leave the self-checkout, there a guy blocking the only exit with his cart right in the middle. I say "excuse me" like a normal person. He turns around looks me straight in the eye, then turns back around and just stands there without moving an inch. After waiting a few more seconds, I take my cart and slam it through the gap, shoving his to the side. Fuck DST.

Dude I flashed my lights at two people the other day. Neither of them got the hint. 

I also saw some lady pull onto the highway with nothing but her parking lights on.

Fuckers like that deserve tickets.

My horn doesn't work.  I have an air horn in my door pocket for drastic situations.

Though today I'm driving my mom's car cause I'm cleaning it for her.  Some dumbass lady in front of me couldn't drive and talk at the same time. She was all over the place and then decided "I'm gonna stop here to talk on my phone" so I had to stab the brakes. Mom's horn works just fine.  I tested it for a solid 5 seconds.

Sunset today?   5:24pm.

IOW, it's darkening by 4:30. 

I could even drive half an hour and make it even worse by crossing time zones to 3:30 land.

You know, I think coming off DST fucks with my sleep all winter. I can go to bed at a pretty reasonable hour all summer, but around this time of year I start staying up way too late and never getting enough sleep. This year I noticed that so far it's corresponding exactly with the DST switch.

.........same.  3:40am...why am I up.

I guess I did nap for a couple hours earlier, but shit.  I'm a night-owl in general, but it's usually worse in the winter.  Doesn't help that I don't work much.

I saw a lady driving an Outback today with no rear lights. At first I thought she just forgot to turn her lights on, but I could clearly see light in front of her car, so I pulled up next to her at the next light to tell her that both of her rear lights were out.

Of course, she just had DRLs (which is what I saw) and had forgotten to turn on her real lights... :facepalm:
