    In a State Of Confusion
    The Joys of Changing to Daylight Savings Time

    The daylight wakes you up and you jump out of bed thinking you have overslept!

    You stagger to the bathroom and fall over the dog that is still sound asleep.

    The timer on the coffee pot isn't set right, and there is no coffee.

    You try to fix the clock on the microwave and set the timer instead Ė you wonder why a microwave needs a clock anyhow?

    You decide this is really all a secret plot by "morning people" to get "night people" out of bed earlier.

    The clock in your car has the right time for the first time since last October.

    You arrive for church an hour late - just as everyone else is leaving.

    You feel exhausted (and will for weeks) even though you missed only one hourís sleep.

    Your computer clock sets itself ahead, but you forget and set it ahead again.

    At the office on Monday all the clocks say 7 a.m., so you put your head on your desk and wake up later to find that the clocks were all wrong.

    Half the office arrives an hour late, saying they forgot to change the clock. You secretly wonder why they did not arrive an hour early in October.

    You take a two hour lunch break and say you forgot to change your wristwatch. ("getting even time.")

    You have an extra hour of light in the evening Ė just enough time to mow the lawn.

    The timer is wrong on the VCR so you miss the last hour of the movie you were recording Ė but you donít notice it until after youíve watched the first half.

    You decide to reset the time on "singing bird clock" It starts singing and wonít shut up until you remove the batteries.

    Itís dinner time according to the clock, but you are not hungry Ė yet.

    You go to bed at your regular time, but youíre not sleepy yet, so you stay up an extra hour.

    You wonder where all the energy is that we are conserving because you sure could use some of it.

    You consider moving to Arizona where they donít participate in this nonsense.

    i had a co-worker that would arrive an hour late in april and say he forgot to set his clock ahead THEN in october he would show up an hour late claiming he set his clock back, but unknown to him, so did his wife.

    in the winter it makes it so there is light when you wake up.. but it also means it gets darker and hour earlier, on top of it getting darker earlier cus its winter. Then in spring you just set it back to normal cus the day is longer so it will be light in the morning. I dont like it cus it makes winters suck.. dark at like 4pm in new york. But then again, without it, the sun wouldn't come out until i was already at school...

    To the north and west of the UK it is to prevent school children going to school in the dark. London and the south east are trying to stop the clock change. Mainly because it does not affect them and also they dont care a f*ck about the rest of the country.
    The best way to keep a secret:- Tell everyone not to tell anyone.
