Daylight Saving Time

It’s that time again. Its time to go around the house before bed and shift the time on all the clocks up an hour to conform to a silly governmental time standard that says we gain or lose an hour. Personally, I plan to wait until tomorrow morning and change clocks as I pass them. Not because I am just being Cantankerous, but because I, like the majority of people born after 1980 use a smart phone as my main clock and it changes automagically.

I understand the reasoning behind the Daylight Saving Time theory. Farmers needed to have a different time schedule for handling their crops and some lobbying group, probably big cereal, bullied the government into changing the time for everyone as at the time most people had a connection to the farm.

Today, there are very few farmers. Those who still follow the old ways of growth for consumption by the masses have computerized means of cultivation, and or pay a flock of hard working Mexicans to do their dirty work. The majority of people, like you and me, work either in offices or factories. We bust our asses Monday through Friday to maintain roofs over our heads and food in the refrigerator. Weekends are our times to rest and relax, and we do not appreciate the loss of an hour because some farmer in Bum fuck Idaho has to get up at the ass crack of dawn to milk the cows.

So no, I’m not going to worry about it. The loss of that hour just pisses me off, and I’m not going to waste my Saturday night worrying about it, when my handy dandy smart phone will wake me up at the right time anyway. Besides, studies are showing that we don’t really need to deal with time changes, and the body will adjust on its own.

Sleep well.
