Daylight Savings - I'm against it

March 14, 2011

I am not a fan of daylight savings time.  I cherish sleep, it's my favorite time of the day.  And losing 1 hour, though it doesn't seem like much, really really screws with my system.  It's like super jet lag.  I don't know why it affects me so much, I just hate it.

This morning I was on the bus and I was wondering if losing the hour affects others as much as it affects me.  That's when I noticed the bus was about half a foot away from hitting a pedestrian.  Apparently the pedestrian noticed too because she stopped walking.  The bus driver didn't seem to notice until we were through the cross walk, where he stopped, seemed to ponder whether he should apologize to the woman, and then just drove on.

So, apparently the answer is yes.  Daylight savings time is clearly evil.


Lunch was worse.  I went to the store to buy some groceries.  I got what I needed, when I went to pay, I realized I had lost my mittens.  My glorious raccoon mittens.  Frantically I searched the store, no luck.  I asked the cashiers and customer service, no luck.  All faith in humanity was lost as I realized someone had scarfed my mittens.

I called them later in the day to see if they had been turned it.  They had been!  Faith in humanity restored!

When I got to the store the line at customer service was huge.  But the guy saw me, waved and said "are you looking for raccoon mittens?"  I nodded enthusiastically.  He waved me over and passed them to me.  I thanked him a million times.  I think my raccoon hat tipped him off.
