DST: RIP

Seriously, the good people of Indiana were just forced to go to Daylight Savings Time and now they are changing it on us. We had to go through all the computer patches and bullshit again and this morning I woke up rubbing my eyes and thinking, gosh it's early, and it was. People who aren't from Indiana marvel at how we never had DST until last year. Hoosiers wonder why all of the rest of you mindlessly follow DST like sheep. It's 5 a.m., now it's 6 a.m. Two plus two equals three.

My son was driving along and got rear-ended by a guy trying to change the time on the clock in his dash. At work, the night maintenance guy tried to change the clock on our wall and it fell off the wall and onto a hub behind a bank of computers, de-powering the hub and leaving us chasing network problems all afternoon, not thinking that of course the night before a clock fell off the wall and hit our hub and shut it off.

Daylight Savings Time is the devil's work. 'Nuff said.

My son is going crazy over DST - we tried to explain it to him and he thought he had it figured out that he could get up early and have 2 hours to play video games before school. I tried to explain to him that he would not only be getting up an hour early, but it would really be two hours earlier but he woul dstill have to go to school at the same time because the school changed their clocks too. It was at that point that he just said he didn't want to talk about it anymore and hid his head under his pillow.

I'm tired....
