It's not my job to insult my clients' intelligence by giving them a reminder about something they either already know about (because they've been alive for many years and have had this experience throughout their life), or will be told about almost daily by every other "news" outlet that believes people are too stupid to know anything.

They would have to be comatose to not know this is the weekend.

Another note will make no difference.

They simply will be late Sunday morning.

And I'll be there with coffee and bagels. They WILL remember that!

Nothing. Computers and cell phones automatically update to correct time. Plus, it's all over the news and social media sites. I feel sorry for anyone that doesn't know about it. If they don't, they figure it out soon enough. No one needs anyone to remind them about it. It's annoying. You might as well tell them " I think you're an idiot and that you're too stupid to know that you're suppose to turn your clocks ahead this weekend, so I'm sending you a spam email to remind you".
