I hate daylight savings time...

Hello again Gentle Reader, 

I have an irrational hatred of daylight savings time. Well, that’s not entirely true. I have a completely rational reason for hating this arbitrary time change, in that I hate being forced to change my clock, for no apparent reason. There’s never been a reason explained to me, with any kind of sense, as to why I must change my clock. 

In fact, just to fight the system, I always keep my car’s clock one hour ahead, just so I am always early or on time. So take that THE MAN. 

Because list comedy is always hysterical to me (SEE: I decided to come up with a list of the top 5 things I have an irrational hatred of: 

1.       Daylight Savings Time – For the reasons given.
2.       Mannequins – They scare the crap out of me.
3.       Only one sock out of the dryer – Where did it go? It’s in the dryer? I put two in there? Where did the other one go?!!!
4.       The birds who poop on my car – I don’t know who they are, because they’re never in the tree when I leave. They just sneak in like a ninja and let loose on my car.
5.       People who come to a complete stop at a green light before turning RIGHT – THERE’S NO ONE ELSE WHO HAS THE RIGHT OF WAY! GO! YOU DON’T HAVE TO STOP!

So, here’s hoping you enjoy this post, Gentle Reader, and have a fantastic Tuesday.


  1. HA! My Gramps hated Daylight Saving time too!He was very old school and was convinced it was just a way for the government to control us. He refused to change the clocks in his house, just to spite the government. (Like they'd ever actually stop at Gramps's house to check!) It's funny that he never noticed that by the time to change them back, they had all miraculously switched to "Fast time" as he called it. Apparently, my gram had no problem with it! :)
