    Default I'm not a big fan ...

    Of the time change that went into effect this morning at midnight. It's 6:38 pm PST and it feels like it's 7:38 pm PST.

    Working 12 hr nights, the time change really sucks......worked a 13 hr shift last night and when I got home it was so bright out, I had a hard time falling asleep. I'm not much of a fan either.

    Well, what is now is actually the "correct" time - if there was no Daylight Saving Time it would get darker an hour earlier all summer long. I can deal. And actually the past 24 hours have been like being in three different time zones to me - started yesterday in PDT, flew home to EDT, then overnight switched to EST. Can't sleep well in any of them anyway!

    I always feel bad for shift work people during "fall back". Years ago I had a 11pm-7am shift and when that f'n clock hit 2am and went back to 1am it meant an extra hour of work with no extra pay. Their logic was that come "spring forward" you worked one less hour so it all evened out. That might be true but it's not much consolation. Plus there are no guarantees you'll still be working that shift come spring time. Overnight shifts are hard enough....that extra hour can feel like an eternity.

    Unless I was working and had to work an extra hour, who the hell cares. I got an extra hour of sleep, works for me.

    Regardless of Daylight Savings or not, I've always disliked this time of year. In about a month, I'll be going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark. And that is working a 7am to 4pm shift.

    Not illegal. It was a State job and supposedly it was in the union contract.

    This was '93-'96. No idea if that's still the case.
