Daylight Savings is a rough time for all.
Think about it — people lose an hour of sleep, they’re confused, they spend days trying to determine which clocks in their lives are displaying the correct time… it’s a mess.
To remind people to turn clocks ahead an hour at 2 a.m. Sunday, the National Park Service shared a video on Facebook of a perplexed looking fox springing headfirst into the snow. And sadly, as Americans struggled to wake up on Sunday morning they realized they were no better than this unprepared little fox.
After wiping their sleepy eyes and realizing they’d just lost an hour of sleep, Twitter users logged onto the platform to engage in a Daylight Savings tradition: Complaining about how exhausted and annoyed they are.
I think #DaylightSavings should start as soon as we all arrive at work on Monday morning. So if you arrive at 8:00, then it automatically becomes 9:00

This is dumb. We should stop it. I tried to explain why we do #DaylightSavings to my son, but it ultimately ended with, “it’s just stupid and lazy, like why we still use pennies” and now I’m just ranting to my toddler about things I don’t like.

Does any politician have “end daylight savings time” on their list of campaign promises?

Fall back Spring forward .. I CAN NOT comprehend this. Soooooo it’s 11:02 where I am.. does that mean yesterday it was 10:02 at this same time? PS do we really need daylight savings? Other countries don’t have it. Is it necessary? LOL

We know it’s hard to be optimistic about this when you’re SO DAMN TIRED, but just remember now you get some extra daylight and it’s time to change the batteries in your smoke detector again.
