Why does DST mess with me so?

  1. I hate daylight savings time!!!! I swear I know its *only* one hour, but I swear that one hour messes me up for weeks!

    Since we just fell back, I am grateful for the extra hour of sleep I had this AM, but now I am just plain tired. I should go to bed, but the clock is telling me its only 10PM. I usually go to bed about the time the 11PM news is over.

    Anyone else have a hard time adjusting when the clocks change?

    i've never been thrilled about it turning dark at 4:30pm.
    but other than that, it's all good.

    I hate it.

    Sunday at work they had all the maintence men working, going from room to room changing times on clocks. What a waste.

    I felt sorry for the night shift workers Sat night. They had to work an hour extra.

    I agree with you completely!

    On Sunday at 1pm, I asked my husband what he wanted for dinner. I was ready to cook it that moment. It took me a minute to realize it was only 1pm. I could have sworn it was at least 5! Needless to say, Sunday dragged on for me..

    It throws me off for days though...

    It always throws me off, too. I wish they'd stop monkeying with the time . I did have to work Saturday night and it was kind of a long one--fortunately it was my first night and not my third . It is nice having it be light when I go home from work, though...

    It screws me up for a while too. I fortunately was off that night (worked last year, though!) and was grateful.
    I don't like it getting dark so early; I loooove summer when it's light til around 9pm.

    I think that this time of the year is depressing because the world is darker for longer hours. Get up in the morning-dark. Get off-it is dark!! And, it is cold!!

    It's nice in the summer when it doesn't get dark until 9:30. More daylight to see the golf ball!
