There’s nothing more annoying to me other than daylight savings time. I couldn’t give two shits whether or not I save an hour of sleep or lose one. All I ask is that we adjust times with the sun, so that it’s still sunny when I get out of work. I’m totally okay with it being pitch black while I drive into work, but I need to at least be driving home while the suns still shining.
It honestly really irritates me. I don’t even know how to change the clock in my work van. Thank the lord the minutes are at least somewhat accurate, but for half the year my clock is either a year behind, or a year ahead depending on what season you’re referencing. I’ve got used to it, it’s been no issue for me, but it really irritates anyone and everyone that gets in my truck.
I couldn’t help but keep it at the wrong hour. They all thought I was doing it on purpose in a way to mess with them. I didn’t have the heart to tell them that my clock was only wrong because I don’t know how to change the time in my truck. I saw how much of a pretzel it put them through, I’d watch them pull out their phones every time they’d get in and do a double take just to check for the correct time.
I thought it was hilarious. I mean it was wicked funny, but when I went to my friend’s house and saw her clock set up, I knew she was far more advanced with her clocks than I was. She had her stove top clock set at one time and her microwave clock set an hour ahead. One had a post-it label next to it with a sun, rocking sunglasses with the only word being Summertime. The Other had the same sun with sunglasses but this time had a snow hat on it with the only word being Winter.
Forget about learning how to change clocks. Forget about trying to overcompensate for your own stupidity on not knowing how to operate a digital clock like me, she had it all figured out. Why worry about remembering when or how to change your clocks when all you have to do is just look at the correct clock at the right time of year.
Once I saw she was doing this at her place, I proceeded to change the stovetop clock in my apartment in preparation for when time springs ahead in the spring. I won’t be labeling the clocks since I don’t have any post it notes so instead I’m just going to cover whichever one is incorrect with some painters tape. This way I’ll never have to change a clock again.
