>I Hate Daylight Savings Time

>I think we should do away with this crap all together. I don’t understand how this is supposed to save energy. It seems like alot of crap to me. It’s not like I actually get one less hour of work. It might feel like it for a day, but I also feel like I get one less hour of sleep.

“Kids across the nation will soon rejoice,” he said, as they get another hour of daylight trick-or-treating.
Who the hell goes trick-or-treating during the day? Loser kids whose parents are overly protective. So now the cool kids all have to wait an extra hour before getting out there in their costumes.

“The beauty of daylight-saving time is that it just makes everyone feel sunnier,” Markey said.

Sunnier! That guy can just suck it. Could he be more Ned Flanders? It makes me more pissed off. I have yet ANOTHER thing to worry about. Hey Ned, how about my plan of doing away with this crap of changing the clock? That way we can just keep going to work from 9-5 (or whatever time) like we always do. Whether it’s pitch black dark out or sunnier than hell, I still have to be at work at the same time.

    >I remember one time my friend Roxxane came to work bitching about this woman in the grocery store. Her kid was crying and fussing and carrying on. “Why couldn’t she just leave him at home?” she asked. “Why couldn’t she just go shopping when he wasn’t around.”

    I smiled.

    I smiled because I knew that one day, some day, she would have kids. And one day she came into work complaining about how Cal was so fussy in the store and screaming, but she had to get the shopping done.

    And I smiled again.

    Your comment about overprotective parents is just the sort of thing single people say. They remember being 14, and wanting to hang out and be cool.

    They don’t remember 7, when they would run into the street without looking because the house over there’s giving away fullsized Snickers.

    I’ll take every damn hour of daylight I can get on Halloween.

    Let the 14-year-olds wait another hour. Maybe they can answer the door for a while.

    Yeharr.

    >G-Man: You have no idea.

    Balloon Pirate: Who let’s their 7 year old trick or treat alone? Aren’t parents usually with the kid? So what does it matter if it’s dark? I thought that was part of the fun of trick or treating was that you got to do it in the dark or dusk at least.

    And if the kid is fussing in the store…slip it a mickey. That’ll take care of the crying.

    Nick: Every day that limit gets reached. I need a trip to Vegas to decompress.

    >Never said I let my seven-year-old trick-or-treat alone. Why did you think that?

    Is it possible to hold the hand of a seven-year-old the entire time? Especially when you also have a nine-year-old?

    The answer is no. The answer is you take every edge you can get when you have kids to protect. It’s a constant dance between giving them freedom and holding them back. And you never know when you’re doing it right. You only know when you’ve done it wrong.

    I’ll attribute the mickey line to a bad attempt at humor brought on by the heat.

    You’ll see what I mean when it’s your kid.
