Daylight Savings Time

Oh my! I nearly forgot that tonight is when we have to spring forward in time and set our clocks ahead one hour. One day I suppose all the high tech gadgets and gizmo's will catch up with daylight savings and reset themselves automatically. Cell phones do and normally computers do as well. Just thought I would share this funny story I remembered from years back.

Each year when Daylight Savings starts or ends I set the clocks during the early part of the evening on the Saturday before rather than waiting until 2am on Sunday. One year I did it even earlier than normal and it was in the fall when we had to set the clocks back one hour. So later that afternoon I went ahead and reset all the clocks in our house to reflect the end of Daylight Savings time.

Sometime later my husband ran to the local store to get a carton of milk and he decided to purchase a lotto ticket for the Saturday evening 7pm drawing. He asked the clerk to add in a lotto ticket but she told him it was too late because it was already past 7pm. My husband was baffled over what the heck she was talking about and why she was refusing to sell him a ticket for that same evening.

Once he arrived back home he then looked at the clocks and realized I had already set them back by one hour, so he was too late with buying his lotto ticket. All I can say is that it was a good thing he didn't have the winning lotto numbers for that night - lol!
