Grumpy Cat And I STILL Agree... We Hate Daylight Savings Time!

How much do I hate Daylight Savings Time? I ask this question each year and the answer each year is that there are probably not enough words in the English language to express my hatred of it! This morning I was awake before 4:00 am, working by 5:30 am and it was still dark out there at 7:30 am! I don't get why early mornings should feel like the middle of the night and not the start of a new day!  There's something totally uncivilized about it! And why do I still feel I have sand in my eyes hours later when I never feel that way? Grumpy Cat and I totally agreed on this last year and we STILL agree this year... we hate, hate, hate Daylight Savings Time.

 

Apparently it takes people a good three weeks to get physically adjusted to Daylight Saving Time and that the number of heart attacks and strokes, accidents and sleep problems significantly increase in the days following Daylight Saving Time. Is it really worth all this for what most everyone admits doesn't really save a lot on energy costs? One study showed that the economic cost from lost productivity and health issues ranges from $400 million to as much as $2 billion. Is it really worth all this to maitain a tradition begun some 100 years ago during World War I?

 

And then, Grumpy Cat has even a better reason for hating Daylight Savings Time:

 

 

I really hate not having light in the morning! Really, really hate it! Ok, that's my rant for the day. Since I don't have any control over Daylight Saving Time and the lack of morning light, I'll just have to suck it up and deal with it. (But I don't have to like it! And neither does Grumpy Cat!)

 

Grumpy Cat and I STILL agree... Daylight Savings Time is the WORST. DAY. EVER!

Nina Hollander - I don't "hate" daylight savings time, it is more of a complete waste of time (no pun intended, really). I get annoyed that I have to change all of the clocks. It's a real PITA.

Kathleen Daniels ~ it is a PITA with changing clocks twice a year... but being a morning person, I miss the early morning light nonetheless.

Nina- I'm with you!   It always takes me at least 2 to 4 weeks to adjust. And to make matters worse, Florida is about an inch away from staying permanently on DST.

Nina I HATE losing an hour of sleep, but I love the extra hour of daylight.  It is kind of a love/hate thing for me.

George Souto ~ good morning, George. I don't ever sleep a lot but that lost hour really is bad for me... like jet lag for days. And I prefer my light in the morning. It's 7:15am and pitch black outside... not civilized if you ask me!

Kathy Streib ~ hi Kathy... amazingly enough it takes me as long to adjust to this hour change as it does to adjust to an 8-9 hour time difference when I travel to Russia to see my family. I don't totally get it. I suppose if FL goes on DST permanently, it will feel better than chaning time twice a year.

Gabe Sanders ~ I'd heard that, Gabe. I'd prefer to have standard time all year round, but not having to change clocks twice a year is still preferable regardless of which option they select.

Nick & Trudy Vandekar, 610-203-4543 ~ hi Nick... I love grumpy cat... I'm feeling sort of jet-lagged with the time change, which is so weird as it was only a one hour change.

I LOVE daylight savings time Nina Hollander , it is worth anything to get an extra hour of light. Nothing worse then being dark so early.

Scott Godzyk ~ hi Scott... I think because we are further south and west than you, we don't get dark as early as you do in standard time. And being the morning person that I am, I miss the morning light.
