That means the eight hour shift I'm doing tonight will be seven hours? Or 9?

7. Because by turning it forward at midnight one hour, I'll essentially skip the entire 12 o'clock hour... Right?

I'm concerned, because I've already done one shift today, my landlord is coming by tomorrow (which means the housework gets DONE SIR! DONE!) And I'm freaking tired...

You know, I never thought about that. If the clocks "spring forward" at 2am then 2am will become 3am, thus losing on hour on your 8hr shift. Lucky you!

It's like a freaking toaster God!

I'm not being sarcastic. I truly am freaking amazed and blown away by this simple device who's only purpose for existence is to lightly scorch sliced bread on both sides. This is the most awesome damn toaster I've ever seen in my whole miserable little life. I am not worthy. I am not worthy. No, not even a little.

Why the hell don't they still make these?
Is it just me or does that sound terribly pathetic? Seriously Trip, you need to get more guns again. A freaking toaster excites you? Good God man, just think what a Garand would do!!!!

Maybe if you hadn't wasted so much time and energy on toasting stale bread the house would be DONE SIR! DONE!

Yeah, when I work nights I don't like losing an hour's pay. On the other hand, in the fall, I hated adding that extra h our on when I already was working a 10 hour shift. Yeah, I'm never happy.

You work 7 hours, you make the clock go ahead and so the time is quicker, now some people may forget to change the clocks and come an hour later.

I worked it a couple years ago when we had to put the clock back an hour. Not fun working a 12 hour shift which turned into 13 and still only getting paid 12 hours.

We got paid for the number of hours actually worked. If I worked 11 hours because the clock moved back an hour, I got paid for 11 hours.

And isn't it interesting people never seem to "forget" to move their clocks back one hour and show up an hour early for work but they sure "forget" to move their clocks ahead one hour and always show up an hour late.

Which reminds me of a story.......

Many years ago, my husband and I went to church on a Sunday. Of course, we were rushing because we were almost late after trying to get ourselves and two kids (at the time) ready for church. We drop the kids off at the daycare at the church (NO ONE SAYS A THING TO US) and we breeze into the church. All the seats are taken so we have to go way up in front. As we sit down and get settled in, the Reverend delivers the final blessing and the service is over. I was absolutely embarrassed beyond belief. I don't know why the day care people didn't mention to us the service was almost over. It was the weekend we turned the clock forward one hour and we had no idea it was that weekend.
