  1. I get to work a 9 hour shift because of Daylight Saving Time. What does the time change do for you?

    Wait, aren't we back onto Standard Time now?

    I am so confused.

    I had to change the time on my watch. That's about it.

    I really wish they'd leave it alone. By the time I get home from work it gets too dark too quick.

    Your employer should split it in half with the next shift.

    I work third shift and I got an extra hour tonight but if you think about it you are not really gaining anything since you also lose an hours worth of time in the spring. You just end up breaking even.

    I hate when it gets dark at 4PM, but I know people who hate going to work before dawn. Can't please everyone.
  10. I stand corrected. I still had to work 9 hours. I should get a 7 hour shift next spring. I hope I remember not to take a vacation at that time.
