I'm really upset with the Daylight Savings Time issue. It was a joke you know. And now we are all (except Arizona) forced to adhere to it. The joke is it's costing consumers (end product) and employers, and everyone tons of money!! People are late to work when the time switches in the Spring...I don't know what percentage, but its not small, and when you multiply it by the number of hours people are late, it is magnified. People are less productive when it begins in the Spring because, even if they made it to work on time, they are still running on Winter time in their heads. Here it is three days from the date time is changing back, and I haven't got used to it yet. That may be because I've not been on daylight savings time for 35 years, until our Governor in Indiana took it upon himself to foist the stupid practice onto the citizens of Indiana. We were perfectly happy without it. Even though this is a Republican governor, and I usually vote a straight ticket Republican...I did not vote for the man. In fact, my childhood friend's son was very active in his campaign, and I told him I would not vote for him if he didn't change his ideas about Daylight Savings Time. I was right. I predicted that he would foist other things upon us that we didn't want. My next prediction? This governor is a flash in the pan. He will NOT be re-elected!!
My solution to this stupid problem of Daylight Savings Time? I believe we should all write to our Senators and Congressmen and let them know that Daylight Savings Time is stupid and that the entire country should do away with it.
I think I'll send this blog off to people who count. Hmmm.
