I Advise You To Spring Ahead Immediately

BlutoDear Modern Philosopher,

What time is it?  I’m so confused!


Trapped In A Tear In The Space/Time Continuum

Dear Trapped,

Don’t panic.  You haven’t fallen through a tear in the space/time continuum.

There’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for your confusion.  You were supposed to set your clocks ahead before going to bed last night.

I advise you to spring ahead immediately!

If you forgot to make the change, you most likely woke up to find that the clocks in your home were not in agreement, am I right?

You probably had one time on the clock next to the bed, the one above the sink in the kitchen, the one on the stove, the one on the microwave, and the one in the den.

Then the clock on your cell phone, laptop, computer, DVR, and every other piece of electronic equipment was different, correct?

Robot 2The Machines spring ahead for you.  They are all knowing and all seeing, and that is why I am constantly warning my readers about the pending Robot Apocalypse!

This is just one more way for them to remind us that they have control.  Don’t let it get to you.  Just calmly set all your other clocks ahead by an hour, and the crisis has been averted.

I know it’s confusing.  I just wish they would stop with this daylight savings nonsense.

Does daylight savings really have a place anymore in our society?  It seems to be outdated, and makes us just a little more reliant on The Machines.

Then again, this is the closest thing to Time Travel that the Government will allow us at this point.  Guess we have to take what we can get.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, even though you are now discovering there is one hour less left of it than you realized.

    Thank God for phones that change automatically, and thus ending decades of showing up an hour early or an hour late twice a year.

    Pain in the butt stupid too. What the hell difference does it make??

  3. Yeah, slept till 8:30, my usual, only to stumble downstairs and was surprised

    Cute post, unless you really weren’t kidding about that robot thing.
    I am slightly apprehensive of that possibility also.
    Time travel would be an interesting way to take a vacation in future, if the robots allow it that is.

      Well, the whole Robot Apocalypse paranoia thing is a regular topic that creeps up on the blog from time to time. Better safe than sorry… 😉

    Time waits for no one, and it won’t wait for us, Austin. When I woke up this morning at 6 a.m. and the sun was nowhere to be found, I said DST my butt,. Now that I’m finally getting around to commenting here at 7:14 p.m. and it’s still light outside the Syracuse Little Bitty living room window, I am a fan of DST day one. Go figure. It’s all a mirage, but we must reset the clocks that aren’t hooked up to the big satellite in the sky anyway.

  10. Anita Stout says:

    I’d like to see the end of DST just so I don’t need to hear people complain about how it stays light till 10 pm and is still dark when we wake up ONE MORE TIME. They’ve already used up in complaining every hour we’ve ever gained – then subtract the hours we’ve lost and, they’re running out of time all together!

    • Austin says:

      I just want them to pick a system and stick with it. I don’t like changing the clocks twice a year. Time travel needs to be left to the professionals!

      • Anita Stout says:

        I boycotted changing my car clock for the entire year. I realize it was a small gesture that could easily be mistaken for laziness – but at least I did my part! It’s finally at the right time again.

      • Austin says:

        It’s always annoying to try to remember how to fix the clock in my car…
