When the clocks go back one hour, I have one hour spare to sleep or work online....but when the clocks go forward I have just lost an hour!!!!!
Bloody hell what a waste of time!
When I was a nurse, Spring was brilliant because I worked an hour less for the same pay. Autumn not so good, I worked an hour extra for the same pay.
When I was driving taxis, I hated the clock change because I either lost or gained an hour depending on the time of year.
It's all relative. Depends what you are doing at the time.
Wayne, I don't mind them moving fwd as it leads to lighter nights. I hate it when we put the clocks back in the autumn.
I like lighter nights it's just a waste of an hour as it just disappears!!! never to be seen again ever!!????
But you get an extra hour in bed in the autumn! I usually forget, and arrive wherever I should arrive an hour too early ...
Meeeeee toooooo!!! (We had to change a couple of weeks ago.)
It's been proven that Daylight Savings Time doesn't actually save energy - it just shifts the costs from one category to another. So why do we still do it?
Good luck to you - I hope you get your sleep back soon.
I have to get up at six in the morning at college, and that's not my time of day - to say the least. In fact, it leaves me feeling pretty lifeless for most of the rest of the day five days a week. Now it's going to be like getting up at five.
How will I manage?
I have read that in the week following the time change there is a spike in heart attacks - but not among retired people (presumably because their schedules are more flexible and they can choose to sleep in)!
I hate both spring and fall because a few years back I bought a new alarm clock that automatically adjusts for what daylight saving time laws were in place when I bought it. The next year they changed the law -- another example of the government screwing up my life. For another week or more I have to keep remembering that it's really an hour later than the clock tells me. Then, in the fall, I have to remember for a month or so that it's really an hour later than the clock says it is. It is very difficult to reset the time on this stupid clock. It requires a screwdriver and lots of muscle power to get the lid on this clock back on once you have adjusted it. My body clock is even harder to reset. Maybe I should move to AZ.
I agree, I hated it when they extended daylight savings time in the U.S. Whereas we normally moved the clocks forward the first Sunday in April, the switch got changed to the middle of March. I always loved March because, for the whole month, the sunshine started coming into the windows earlier in the morning, allowing my body to wake up earlier, naturally.
Also, I believe, if you'll check, automobile accidents increase for the first week following the time change. I was out driving on the freeway right after our recent time switch, and had a few close calls that wouldn't have been my fault if an accident occurred. I prefer not to think about it.
My late father, a rancher and farmer, never made the switch on his wristwatch. He always had to adjust the time mentally for meetings, etc. He said, "Daylight Savings Time is the government dictating to you when you have to get up in the morning."
I love it when the clocks go forward (as long as I'm not working that day) because it means the long Winter is over - hooray!
It is difficult for anyone with small children as they cannot alter their sleep patterns as easily as changing a clock time.
I don't get used to the time change until September or whenever the clocks go back again.
I love it how I changed the clock on my cell phone, and forgot that with the new technology the clock changes itself.
So this morning when I woke up I was totally clueless

Don't forget to Spring Forward before going to bed tonight! Should we cancel Daylight Savings Time?Yes, it's that time of year again to lose an hour's sleep. Well, to be honest, I wish I could Spring Forward and never Fall Backwards again! For me, I love the extended daylight hours,...
