Best part of living in Arizona.. I don't have to worry about that. Worst part of living in Arizona.. readjusting to friends in different time zones as I move from mountain time to pacific time.

Oh, how I hate this one. I need my sleep.

This is ultra-important if you happen to be a clergyman.

Late for services? That's a firin'.

Well, I think the only clock I have to manually program is the microwave.

UNC_Samurai: Well, I think the only clock I have to manually program is the microwave.

Yeah, this used to be much more dramatic than it is now. My car is the one that always trips me up because I never remember the code I need to input to change anything on it. Pretty much everything else gets the time itself, but I still miss my hour.

Wait, I live in western Colorado, not too far east of you. Why do I have to change?

This, but I just tell myself that I'm now the same time as California and 3 hours behind the east coast and I'm good.

Because we opted out years ago because if we did "spring forward," it wouldn't get dark here until after 9pm and guys running drive-in theatres wouldn't like that.

/true story, I swear

Is anyone else creeped out watching their clock go from 1:59 AM to 3:00 AM?

Just lost, subby? I got laid off 3 months ago!

Miss living in Arizona, where we didn't do this either.

2009-03-08 03:13:47 AM  
I work nights so I get off an hour early this morning... and by that I mean I'm going home early and celebrating with a good old fashioned wank

Fark the dang time farking with. I'm still staying up still fark 30.

Just after my initial remark, I realized that the admin joke was twofold: it was greened not only right before it would be time to change one's clock, but also on the wrong day (if the word "tomorrow" hadn't been correctly yanked from the headline).
 
2009-03-08 03:18:24 AM  
Job? Psh.

What about the game you just lost?

Don't worry Submitter, I'll make sure your Mom gets up in plenty of time.

Why do we still do this at this day in age?
Everyone goes by these new time sets but does it matter with newer CFL and LED bulbs?fark DST, I'll be an hour late to work
 
2009-03-08 03:27:32 AM  
This is just wonderful. I'm working 3 double shifts in a row and the last thing I farking need is to lose an hour.
 
2009-03-08 03:28:55 AM  
I'm working the overnight shift, so I get to go home an hour early and still get paid for the lost hour so I'm getting a kick...

If this is really the best part of living in Arizona it only confirms my suspicion that living in Arizona sucks ass.

I found myself going Insomniac and passed through Fark to see what was going on.

Sometimes, just sometimes, Fark puts out information that a few of us find useful. The Mrs. Geek is going to be miffed when she finds out she lost an hour of sleep.

/thought Daylight Savings started next week.

The best part about daylight savings springing forward for me is one less hour to be at work.

I don't work on Sunday :P

We made sure, before they went home last night, they were told no less than 5 times to set their clocks ahead when they got home.
 
2009-03-08 03:56:31 AM  
Nope - we don't change the clocks until next month - and it's an hour back, not forward. Stupid Northern-hemisphere-centric-mitter.

/Did I do that right?
//So glad we've got another month of DST :-)

Hey, not having to change the damn clock in the car is worth it. And the wonderful weather, beaches, great hiking and now 2 brand new Targets! Woo Hoo! Oahu Rocks!!!

Hawaii is one of the few places you don't have to defend.

I'm hoping my replacement forgets about the time change, nothing wrong with getting overtime for working a normal shift.
 
2009-03-08 04:09:43 AM  
I'm running Windows XP with "automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time" box checked under my preferences.

I watched my clock go from 1:58...to 1:59...to 1:00 AM.

Japan is like Arizona, in the fact that we don't have to worry about DST.

Or the golf industry.

That and the fact that my Drivers License doesn't expire till 2050. But yeah... it pretty much sucks ass here in Arizona.
