Or how about this one, the homesupport worker rolls out of bed on time, schedule in hand cuz the office used to give them out, and gets to her first crotchety client for the day, who had no idea it was Fall Back. And the next, and the next.

Ha! I usually forget, then suddenly " a free hour" what to do, what to do, ohyea right, bugger with the clocks, and then a mere second off the microwave and the stove clock. You push frantically, hitting the numbers like a Granny on crack at Vegas but matters not -you glance and still off. Taunting you. And forget the clocks in the car, easier to BUY a new car

Norma, have you been watching me reset the clocks on my stove and microwave? Come on...where'd you hide the camera?!
Every car has an Owner's Manual...lots of interesting tidbits in there...like how to reset the clock! :127:

(Why yes, I do reset the work fleet if someone else doesn't beat me to it.)

I know, but do you really want to send your kids to school an hour early and be an hour early for all your appointments? (Didn't think so.)

I try not to bother resetting the ones in my vehicles till they drive me nuts, usually about a month before it is time to set em all back again. :nutzoid:
