Flying the coup in retail

Spring Forward? How about sluggishly crawling forward?

Ugh,  the weekend were to change the clock. Who would have thought that one hour…one single hour would throw and entire body into disarray?  I dislike changing the whole idea of daylight/standard time.  Honestly, when I lived in Arizona, we didnt’ change the clocks and somehow we all survived.  Why do we really need to do this anymore?

Even my dogs can’t cope well.  Sunday morning we had to get up early for an engagement.  And back we are to getting up in the dark.  My body screamed “BUT ITS 530 am!”  and I had to scream back “NO, its 630 am!”..The dogs (who normally leap out of bed) didn’t even stir.  They looked at me with disdain because they too felt it was 530 am. 

We trod to work and change the clocks..and enivitably some employee fails to realize that the time is changed and misses his/her start time by one hour, always an interesting event.  “Claire, you are late..”  ” No I am not, its 10:00″…”No, its 11: 00..didn’t you change your clocks Saturday night?” 

Deer in the headlights looking back….

I vote we fuggetaboug this archaic practice.  Let the earth decide when it will get dark.  It seems to work for the rest of the planet.

Now excuse me while I grab a coke so I can stay awake for awhile…..zzzzzzzzzz.

There`s a study that says car accidents increase by 7% in the spring when we lose an hour, before returning to normal over two weeks. In the fall when we gain a hour, car accidents decrease by 7%, before returning to normal again.
