We just went through ‘fall back’ last night. We got an extra hour of sleep but it’s not all is cracked up to be.
It’s now pitch black outside at 6:30pm, so it feels much later. We also have to adjust our internal clocks. It’s such an antiquated practice, I think we should get rid of it.
I even gave a speech about it at Toastmasters.
People die of heart attacks, sleepy driving after the ‘spring forward’ time change. Businesses are affected and lose out on millions due to mistakes and missed appointments.
In the fall, nobody seems to get upset by it because of the “extra hour”, like we don’t lose an hour in the spring. It’s awful and should be abandoned.
