Meh, the clocks went back an hour on the 27th October in the UK and I still haven't gotten round to changing the time on certain devices.

No. An hour early.

 

My apologies, you are right!   

 

You've got it backwards.  If you didn't change your clock and showed up at 9, you're actually there at 8....an hour early.  Just like my relief did this morning at work...hilarious he showed up at 5 and didn't realize it until he got there. 

 

You're right!

 

This is exactly why I hate DST, it is an abomination inflicted on civilized people!  My late Grandma used to say the only reason the politicians did this was to give them extra daylight to play golf with their cronies.   ;)

I don't have a watch anymore.. it's broken. I have a clock on my phone.. so I don't need a watch for awhile now.

 

My gaming console was set it automatically  :p

Moving to Arizona means we don't observe DST. It really is great. Makes TV programs come on at different times with live events from the east coast, but I MUCH prefer not having to deal with DST.

Millions of people in Arizona and Hawaii are saying WTF you talking about?

 

... neither of these states participate in daylight savings.

 

I wish we didn't. I hate all this time change.
