Fall Back! Problems

I know I’m not the only one, but did you notice the time being wrong for the last week around the city? Lots of places said it was an hour behind already when that’s only supposed to start happening today!

And yes, today you must change your clocks 1 hr back for the end of daylight savings time. The whole concept of this time shift is increasingly annoying, I have to say. They extended it into November so that we don’t have to spend as much time in the dark and supposedly save on energy costs. Whatever. The fact of the matter is that it is one more important thing that we have to remember that could affect people’s lives. Not to be nitpicky, but can’t we just leave time alone?

    No to the first part. Most folks here miss DST.

    The time shift is really about retailers and not energy. NPR did an in-depth article on it awhile back where they proved we only keep it because people stay out longer and spend more money than if we didn’t do it. I hate it, and I hate the way mass retailers control the very concept of time.

  2. Interesting! I didn’t know that. How underhanded and devious that is!!! When the hell did they get so powerful as to control how we perceive time? Wow.
