Default Daylight Savings Time

Is this Sunday at 2 am. I know there are some rational states that don't do it and those people can sleep in late...or whatever...

Some years ago I was told by someone who claimed to have inside information, that the reason for modern Daylight "Saving" Time was so Politicians had time for another round of golf.

Public safety and/or recreation has Nothing to do with it.

Daylight saving sucks, Just leave the f'ing clocks alone.
I'm glad we don't have it. It gets late, you go to bed, wake up when you will. Alarm clocks don't care!
It workd for millions of years before some smart *** decided to f%^& with our heads and clocks.

I spent at least half of my career on the graveyard shift. The people I worked with chuckled at anyone who claimed to be affected by changing the clocks an hour.
Go to work when the sun goes down and come home when the sun comes up and sleep during the day, and you won't give a damn what time it is. Then switch to day shift for the weekend, then back to night shift, over and over and over. Daylight savings time is a fart in a hurricane. I don't care if they do it or not.
Now that I'm retired, I sleep every night so on Sunday morning I had to stay in bed an extra hour.

I'm with you, Stu!
In retirement, my favorite smartass response to "What time is it?" is "Hell, I don't know - what day is it?"

My sentiments exactly! I have worked third shift for 38 years with no immediate plans for retirement. I like what I do and let's face it... in the medical field, SOMEBODY has to do it! As you said, I switch back and forth as deemed necessary by my duty schedule and that one hour that comes and goes as part of the Daylight Saving Time change is totally irrelevant.

I am in Arizona, where we do not adjust our clocks to suit the whim of some politicos from long ago. I do, however, have to work a job that coincides with east coast business hours, so my leisurely sleep until 5:00AM on weekdays has been shifted to 4:00AM. It does take me a bit to down the appropriate quantity of coffee in order to handle 6:00AM conference calls in the office during DST. There is a reason Arizona is on Mountain time - we're not in California, and don't need to be told when to shift our clocks forward or back. But still, it sucks when you have to adjust to those who do.
