Yup! Next Weekend we change our clocks back from Daylight Saving time. How many people are late each year for something because they forgot to change their clocks.
November 20011 we changed our clocks and according the National Geographic 27% of the people that were in a time zone that changed were late. Heck my wife says, I don't need an excuse to be late! If it isn't a real estate appointment I am late. She thinks I am going to be late for my own funeral. I have no doubt she'll make sure I am on time!
Now don't think anything but good thoughts we get along great and are best friends too. That doesn't mean my little obsession for trying to cram 50 minutes in a 40 minute time slot doesn't cause some kind words of encouragement. :-)
If you are like me and want to know more about subjects I have a link for the National Geographic on this Day Light Saving issue. They take on the subject of should we have it or not? I remember the little rhyme that came out when this rule was first invoked. "Fall Back, Spring Ahead" We move our clocks one hour. The problem now is almost every thing you buy has a clock! Some automatically adjust and others like your oven, stove, microwave, private phones and a couple wrist watches that I keep for working rather than dress require changing.
So the key is a reminder to change your clocks, write a sticky note, and place it on your microwave door. You will remember and laugh at all those people that show up to church with wet hair!
What percentage of people do you think will be late when we change our clocks next week?
