In this hectic world where we wish daily that we had one more hour in our days, losing an hour is a big deal. When it’s done on a Sunday morning where the next day is the much-dreaded and hated Monday, it’s an even bigger deal.
It’s becoming increasingly clear that this tactic has ran its course but the decision-makers continue to flog this dead horse. Maybe they just don’t want to admit defeat. Saying this, I have a work-around that could make this DST work and benefit everyone. Make the change on a weekday, preferably Monday, at about 3pm!
How would that benefit everyone? Well when the time changes on a Sunday, employees show up to work tired and unproductive. That’s if they do turn up, some prefer to call in sick. If the time goes forward an hours closer to the end of their work day, employees get to leave on hour earlier AND start their evening chores earlier too! It’s almost as if they gained an hour! It’s all in the mind of course because really, who doesn’t want to leave work early? Happy employees=production=happy employers.
Thank me later.
