What Time Is It? Daylight Savings Time Causes ChaosBy: Chad Sweely - March 12, 2012
No matter how many times the media reminds us to set our clocks forward or back, there is always someone that either shows up late for work the next day, or wakes up an hour earlier and then drifts back to sleep thinking that they have time on their side. Either way, the premise of “springing forward and falling back” can be a challenge to the public. When we hear on TV or the radio “Remember to set your clock back/forward,” we always think about it, but always forget to do it before our heads hit the pillow. Although, if you depend on the time from your cellular phone, it should update automatically from the tower (if you have it set to automatically sync).
Are you unsure of what the current time is and not wearing a watch? I have provided a few sites below that will check to see the current time where you are, along with various other regions around the world.
There have been many reactions on Twitter to the recent DST change and I have provided some responses below:
Daylight Savings makes us lose an hour. It’s just like checking Twitter.
Wow, I am not down with waking up while it’s still pitch black out. Daylight savings is for dorks.
Remember when we physically wound clocks backward and forward twice a year for daylight savings? Rough times. Kids today have it easy.
Dear daylight savings, please give me my hour back, I was particularly fond of that one and I don’t want to wait ’til October to get it back
If Daylight Savings means we lose an hour of sleep I think we deserve an extra breakfast. Anybody?
Confused by Daylight Savings Time I am. Lose an hour of sleep we did. Woken up an hour earlier we were. Losers we all turned out to be.
If they moved Daylight Savings Time to 4pm on Monday afternoon so everybody got off work 1 hour earlier…it would get more love
