How many of you were like me and showed up at the office at your "regular" time only to be surprised no one else was at work. Wondering where everyone was, I began texting my team wondering why no one was working. In my mind I was wondering, "Is it Sunday?" and started taking inventory in my mind of the weekend that had just passed. No, I was certain it was Monday. Then the reply text came that the time had changed. Immediately I thought, "Aren't we done with daylight saving time changes?" Well, obviously not. But hadn't I heard last year that we were doing away with DST? Well...apparently not.
According to TIME online, four days ago legislators were still debating the issue (https://time.com/6330561/what-to-know-daylight-saving-time-change/), "Legislators have previously voiced support to make Daylight Saving Time permanent, but whether that will happen in the future remains in limbo. “It’s time to put a stop to the twice-a-year time-change madness,” said U.S. Senator Ron Wyden, a cosponsor of a bill that would make Daylight Saving Time permanent, in March. That bill, however, has not seen any movement this year."
I am one of those people who pray we do away with the time change ever six months. It disrupts my sleep for weeks while I try to adjust to the new time. With kids going to school later and employees working from home more often, I don't see a need for the time change. It's just one of those little annoyances that I could do better without.
So, reluctantly I walked through the office resetting the clocks. I even was successful resetting my highly complicated Casio watch. A few minutes later my team began to arrive, looking refreshed from the extra hour of sleep they were able to enjoy.
