Some things are best left unsaid.

I'll say them anyhow!

Sunday's Not Short Enough?

Rate: 1 Flag

images 

 It's almost 3 o'clock.  This time yesterday it was going on 2pm.  This is upsurd losing an hour from our already too short weekend, I have said it for years.  I know that it's great in the autumn when we get that hour back, but for right now, it stinks, I tell ya.

There is a solution, it makes so much sense.  I am certain that I'm not the only person to have thought of this:  take the hour away tomorrow.  Imagine what that would do for Monday blues if at one fifty-nine, you knew in one minute it would be three o'clock!  What a natural mood elevator.  I get happy just thinking about that possibility.  

Now there are some downsides.  If, for example, Monday was your day off, not good.  Or if you start work at 3pm, you may not feel my joy.  

When I worked shift work, I loved working this weekend.  Not only did I only work eleven hours, I got paid for twelve.  Does that still happen?  I despised working the flip side in the fall when I worked (and got paid for) thirteen hours.  

Since the majority of people are day time workers, I'm positive that this idea would sell.  When you consider the pluses in this concept, I know that you too will cry out for Daylight Savings Time to begin during the week, preferably on a Monday.

As a kid, I was conditioned to love DST, because it meant that I could play outdoors later. Your take on the situation makes me look at it differently. How about if we ONLY gain an hour? Twice a year, perhaps even more, we set the clock back an hour. I realize that this eventually could lead to disorienting results. Everybody going to work in the dark, working in the dark, and returning home in the dark. Lovers enjoying a midnight supper in blazing daylight. But it would make life seem longer, and that's a plus -- I think.
Many American and British daily newspapers publish a larger edition on Sundays, which often includes color comic strips, a magazine, and a coupon section; may only publish on a Sunday, or may have a "sister-paper" with a different masthead that only publishes on a Sunday.-Tax Tiger
