Really? You guys still put up with that?

Well then, don’t forget to…whatever you’re supposed to do.


I could never keep it straight, myself.

    Ah-yup. I was slated to get up at 4:15am (the new time). As of 4 am (the old time) the phone/alarm still hadn’t changed and there’s no way to adjust the time. I was a bit late for work. But only a bit. Stoopid change.

  2. MJR says:

    Spring forward… ha! In our 24/7 world the time changes are just a pain in the butt and a minor pain at that.

    @Robert.. I feel for you. Many the year I had to drag my weary bones out of a warm bed an hour early to go to work. Being the anal retentive guy that I was I wouldn’t sleep well, waking up countless times to look at the alarm clock to see if |i had slept in. I hated the time change in the spring with a passion.

    These days with being a retired guy, you can count the times I have used an alarm clock in the past 2 years on your fingers and still have a couple of digits left over.

    MJR: I slept great because by the time I went to bed at 8pm I had forgotten about the change. I’m semi-retired or else I woulda worried more about it like you used to.

    Now that I’m retired the time change is no big deal, and it serves as a twice-yearly reminder to check my smoke detectors.

    So yes, I still put up with that.

  5. Robert says:

    Uh, oh. Your reason to put up with this nonsense is becoming semi-obsolete. The new smoke detector batteries are not replaceable. Sposed to last ten years. Our apartment complex installed 150; most started failing within three months. After days of incessant beeping, I helped the maintenance guys by removing ours from the ceiling using a handy sledge hammer…

    As in all things of the small, electronic consumer-goods variety, the catch will be that the original manufacturer will not be around when that “ten-year-guarantee” is tested at, oh, about two or three years. And if by some miracle you can still find the manufacturer, the “free” replacement will in fact be available, but the shipping charges will nearly equal the price of a brand-new one. Either that or the famous “pro-rated” discount will apply . . . plus shipping.

    One of the many reasons I moved to Arizona. They leave the clocks alone. Just pick a setting and leave it!

    More states should opt out.

To the stake with the heretic!
