No matter how hard I try, I always forget to change at least one clock during the Daylight Savings Time changeover. Thank God most of my electronics change themselves automatically or I'd have a real mess on my hands.
This time, the clock I forgot to change was my desk clock at work. At 9:30 a.m. (standard time), I looked at my clock and it said 10:30 a.m. (daylight savings time). It was taunting me.
My first thought was, "My goodness, the morning sure has flown by."
My second thought was, "My goodness, I sure have been goofing off a lot because I haven't gotten crap done."
It wasn't until my third thought that I realized I hadn't changed the time on my desk clock. Years ago, I worked with a secretary who picked up her purse, punched the time clock and walked past several of us on her way to the elevators.
"Where are you going?" we asked.
"I'm going to lunch, why?" she said in a tone that indicated she thought it was a stupid question.
"At 11:00?" we said in a tone that indicated that we weren't the ones who had just done something stupid.
"No, it's noon...oh."
