13. You mean you hate STANDARD TIME

I hate it, too. I hate it like poison. It makes the winter seem darker and gloomier than it already is.

What most people say when they say they hate daylight savings time is that they hate the changeover. It takes me weeks to reset my clock, which is already out of kilter from delayed sleep syndrome. I get that.

I'd like year round daylight savings time. If parents whine about their kids waiting for the school bus in the dark (which kids in the far north do, anyway), maybe they need to start school an hour later.

Standard time was arbitrary when it was set to please the farmers. Few of us are farmers and most of us would like that hour of sunlight in the afternoon when we start home from work. At least we'd see the sun.

Standard time should be banished to the dustbin of failed experiments.
