HOLY SHIT it's ?am/pm... I fully didn't reset my clock!

Recommended Posts

Yeah, so... do it now, we'll wait.

 

 

Now tell us about how you were late because of stupid daylight savings time.

 

 

I'll start with a story from when I was 13. We were supposed to be at a softball game and 'pageant' at 10am. We were late but, of course there was a cushion and my mother had something cooking or someshit so we were already a half hour behind... so, as you guessed from the title we blew it and missed the softball, which was nearly heartcrushing for me but...

 

OK, the game was finished, they announced the 'Kudzu Queen' and the party adjourned to a private residence. Venison was prepared en masse and it was AWESOME! First time I'd eaten that, yummmy. This didn't stop me from noticing my friend Richard stole a six pack and ducked around a corner. I was still feasting on Bambi's mother when I noticed the unmistakeable smell of weed from the area where he had dipped out to, and while I enjoyed the venison, I knew what I liked so...

 

I got there too late, I literally saw Richard drop and smash a miniscule roach.... so I did the logical thing... I smacked him. WTF? I asked how he could gyp me like that but, being as we'd never smoked together, and he was a few years older than me... I had to accept his 'I didn't know' argument. I demanded 'satisfaction' and he gave me the 2 beers left from what he stole. Then he went and stole another joint while I stole another 6 pack and we met back up.

 

and THAT was the first time I got drunk.

 

Of course, that was back when the time change coincided with the equinox...

When I was in Grade 6, a while a ago now, I had this assignment to finish. It was about Peru (had to pick the country you most wanted to visit).

This was back when computers and internet weren't all that common yet. I was hand writing this thing, basically copy/paste from an encyclopedia.

I remember I was struggling to finish it. Then I heard on the news it was daylight savings change over, and I would get an extra hour to work on it. I was so excited that I went outside and played basketball for an hour. Then came back home and finished the assignment. Got an A.
