I am definitely NOT a fan of time change. I know it is simple to figure out, but I forget whether I gain or lose an hour. Sherry knows it exactly, but does not like it either. She starts the day before saying “Tomorrow this time it will be xxxx.” Or the next day, “If we had not changed our time, it would be xxx o’clock!.
If it is that big a deal why don’t they reset time 30 mins one way or the other, or just LEAVE IT ALONE!
That said, has it ever caused you to be early or late?
It did us one time when we lived in Norfolk. We went to church an hour early. I actually wondered if they had cancelled service. Of course my girl figured it out and I heard, “Uh oh, last night was when we were supposed to set our clocks back!!!!!”
Arizona and Hawaii are the only two states who do not recognize Daylight savings time. I am sure someone at a higher pay-grade can give ample reason for DST, but from my humble position, methinks it sucks bilge water. If you have the mid-watch on a ship, you get an extra hour of duty. And most likely you are not going to have the watch when the reset time comes so you are not gonna regain it. LOL
I have often wondered about companies that run around the clock, does the mid shift get paid for the extra hour as overtime?Nite Shipslog
