Daylight Savings: An Ode to Laziness (A "Poem")

Sure, I may have lost
An hour to snore,
But after four long months
My clocks are right once more.

  1. That's funny. My grandmother never liked to change her clocks. She said, "I'm retired. Where do I have to be?"

  2. Hahhaha nice. Luckily I only have one clock on my place that isn't my cell phone or computer.

    1. I have six. Some changed, but the high-reaching ones did not.

  3. I am still bitter about getting gipped out of the hour. I can not afford this!

  4. It needs to just stay this way and quit screwing with us bi-annually!

  6. LOL! You're one of them! It drives me nuts when my mom doesn't turn her clocks back. It's like, want me to hit the button? hahaha

    1. Yep, I am "one of them." I like your mom's style.

  8. We are still on summer time, no idea when it goes back.
    As for changing clocks, well the power went off this morning so they all had to be changed. Complete pain

    1. Ugh that is the worst.

      And I like the idea of "summer time." I think that I will go by that time from now on.

  9. Nice poem! I hate changing the clocks. In 2012 there's just no point in doing it. The state of AZ doesn't do time changes. I think the rest of the US needs to follow suit.

  10. Now that everything's digital, only the microwave clock needed changing. The clock in my wife's car, meanwhile, just went back to normal, since she never changes it. And now she can be right for another 6 or so months! Yay!

    1. My microwave usually just displays some random numbers like "15." Essentially, the amount of time left before I got impatient and took out my food the last time I used it.

  11. It's wrong for us parents...In the summer here in Indiana, the sun is still up at 9:30 or 10:00. Try getting your kids go to bed when the sun is still shining. Not easy!

    1. Oh wow I never realized it stayed bright that long. That has gotta be tough.

  12. I can't believe that this hasn't occurred to me before. YOU ARE A GENIUS.

    1. I can't believe that hadn't occurred to you before either.

      :P

  13. Huh, I'm gonna have to try that when it comes time to change our clocks again. Because it is a bitch having to change all our clocks and watches. Ok, I guess it's not that bad. I'm just pretty lazy myself.

    1. It's one of those things that isn't live-or-die, so I just end up letting it go.

    2. But, are you sure it's not live-or-die? I don't know if I want to tempt fate that much. Ha!

  14. It takes at least 4 months before I change the one in the van. Except I'm getting a new one today so it will be done for me. Drives me bonkers though that my cable company hasn't updated the time on their boxes yet. Everything is an hour behind and it's making me late everywhere.

    1. I suppose that the cable company is as lazy as the rest of us.

  15. I'm always fascinated by the whole daylight savings thing! We don't do it here. No need, I guess. The difference between daylight hours in winter isn't all that different to in summer. We're just a bunch of slackers here, eh?! Great poem! :)

    1. You're not slackers, it is just unnecessary.

      Really, it is unnecessary here too... more of a tradition it seems.
