When do you adjust your clocks / watches?

  • Before I go to bed on the Saturday night
  • After I wake up on the Sunday morning
  • “live” (i.e. at 2am on the Sunday morning)
  • I have no devices that need manual adjustment (wahey)

It’s this weekend right?


#3

Whatever way I do it I need to change, because last time I got it very wrong, effectively robbed myself of two hours of sleep, then went to a Netrunner tournament and did the worst I’ve ever done due to being unable to think through the sleep fug.

  • about two weeks after they go back
  • generic tory option

Might try and store up the hours back by ignoring the clocks going back for 24 years then giving myself a whole day as a present.


#6

The Autumn one’s shit because small children have no concept of time or lie-ins.

So true. And then it feels like aaaaages before bedtime.

I always make sure that there is one clock on my bedside which needs to be manually adjusted. I have been caught out in the past by not knowing if my clocks have auto-updated during the night and leapt out of bed because I was ‘late’, only to find when I turned on the TV (phnaarr) that it was an hour earlier

My nan & grandad used to have their wedding anniversary on the 1st April, and it was my nan’s birthday on that day too.

Every single year that there was a family get together at the end of March, my uncle would turn up to the restaurant an hour late.


#11

fuck off am i the only one that has done this


#12

And no one thought to tell him that the table was booked for an hour earlier than it actually was…? smh


#13

Ahhh… the patented @aboynamedgoo ‘arranging a 5-a-side start time’ tactic.


#14

Nobody needs to manually adjust clocks any more, everybody just looks at their phone which has automatically updated. I will not accept any arguments to the contrary.


#15

I like the cut of his jib


#16

Pretty sure that Louis-taccos still turned up late…


#17

I have had phones in the past which didn’t adjust and, as a consequence, I am deeply distrustful of them. Give me a Nokia 5310 any day of the year (esp. the last Sunday’s of March and October)


#18

Was caught out and late for football on Sunday one time as my phone automatically did it and I also changed the time before bed!


#19

Fuck off, Granddad

Edit: I’m immediately sorry about posting this, sorry

Boring but genuine question - is there a reason its always on Sundays? I would love an extra hour in bed on Monday AM tbh
