I was thinking about this and it amused me.
First, is it really "standard" time if we only use it a third of the time? Some countries went to daylight savings time year round during WWII, forget if we did, think Japan did. (was half listening to a story on the history of DLST) That's when it really made me chuckle as I was driving along today.
Nothing in the universe has changed other than our arbitrary clock settings. Why was it easier to change that socially agreed upon convention than the start and stop time of the work day? It's really the same thing. If it made sense at time of war, and now 8 months of the year in times of war and peace for us, why not just shift what is "standard" by an hour permanently?
Do you suppose the "standard" workday would change from 9-5 to 10-6 if DLST was made permanent? It seems to me the 5pm end of work day was probably adopted due to sundown, but in a less agrarian society I wonder if we'd stay with the workday time convention or follow the sun.
like the signature line says....

I'm celebrating DST by working an involuntary double shift! WOOO frigging G.D. whoooo.... I HATE my management!!! I knew it was a bad idea to not sleep in this morning when I had the chance! That's the bad part of having involuntary OT is you never know when they are going to make you stay and work.Grumpy bastard sick of it all!

I hate DST. We've only had it for a short while here. I much preferred never having to change the time. I hate the potential of being screwed by having to work an hour for free. It only evens out if you work during both time changes. And despite what anyone tells you, you don't get any more daylight by changing the time.CHIRP! CHIRP!

I agree though about involuntary OT. That's why I don't like to carry a cell phone even now. Too many times I got called (previously paged) to come in to work when I was out enjoying the hell out of myself. I didn't mind it so much if I was already there, but getting called when I'm sitting on a lake fishing was annoying.When I used to be somebody (I'm center top)

Though that doesn't work as well if the dept. gives you a cell phone and tells you its your responsibility to keep in on and charged.
But if you are already off duty and they call you, you can always say you are drunk.CHIRP! CHIRP!

I hate losing the hour of sleep but I do like the later daylight hours. I forgot the time change even though I was constantly reminded all week long I still forgot to change the clocks and slept in.
My dad, I miss him every day.
