Did it sneak up on anyone else?

Holy cow. I didn't realize this was the weekend we were changing to Daylight Savings Time until Saturday night. Man, it totally snuck up on me. And of course, it totally sucked to lose an hour. What's weird is the clock on our cable box hasn't automatically set forward. So all the shows are an hour behind--it's playing 6pm shows at what is now supposed to be 7pm. Isn't that weird? I thought it was all controlled by satellite or something.

I remember a couple of falls ago, we had a temp who just started at our office on a Friday. She was late by 40 minutes, claiming she had gotten a flat tire. A little suspect, because one would think that it would take a lot longer than that to get a service to come out in rush hour traffic to replace a flat tire. And if she had changed it herself with her manicured hands and skirt--she managed to clean up miraculously nice and quick. Her second day was the Monday after the weekend we turned the clocks back, and a lady from the temp agency called telling us that the temp called her and was running behind because she forgot to set her clock back. When I pointed out that she would have been here an hour early it that was true, the lady at the agency sighed, yeah. Needless to say, we didn't have her back.

Anyhoo, I hope that setting the clock forward this weekend hasn't thrown anyone else off.

Now that daylight savings time runs from 3/8 to 11/1 shouldn’t it be called
“standard” time? We now have daylights savings for almost 8 months a year.
Standard time should be called “The other” time.
PS-So what happened at the sale?
You know us readers have to know!!
