I Hate Daylight Savings

I also hate daylights saving. Takes me and my family so long to get used to the change. Plus in the Winter we have less time to go on a family walk before sunset which is a major pain.

Do we really need it anymore?

Iirc they're phasing it out and have been for the last few years. It's been moved back when it happens a bit and will eventually wont happen anymore.

I don't like it either. Nothing brightens my mood like when we change the clocks again in the Spring.

I feel the same way. Get rid of it. I like more daylight in the evenings.

I hate trying to remember how to change all of my clocks, especially the one on the microwave.

And then having to change them all again because my wife will also change them LOL

Think I will boycott it starting now so I can get off work an hour early today.

Yeah, but doesn't that mean you'll get into work an hour late and maybe tick off your boss?

For the record, I agree it should be abolished. I'd rather have the daylight AFTER work, not just before.

We are actually on standard time now, they are lengthening the day light portion of the change, not phasing it out. Why can't they just leave things alone.

I wake up with the sun and go to bed a little after it goes down.

This only puts me up an extra hour with nothing to do in the morning. Time to find a hobby... I guess... if I have to. No point in letting an hour go to waste.
