Joke 948

27 Oct

Remember!   The clocks went back last night so some of you will be getting this joke an hour earlier.  

Daylight savings time world

Or later.  I never get the hang of Daylight Saving Time.  And I’m not the only one, apparently…

  • Salvador Dali’s note to self for daylight savings: “Don’t forget to melt the clocks.”
  • Congratulations clock next to my bed, you’re the right time again. Just took some patience.
  •  It sucks cause I also lost an hour back in February (I watched the pilot of ABC’s The River)
  • I just lost another hour trying to figure out how to reset the clock in my car.
  • If daylight savings time is throwing your brain for a loop today, wait ’til you hear this: “favorite” isn’t a verb.
  • Thank you daylight savings time for giving me an excuse to be an hour late to everything for the next week and a half.
  • Set all my clocks ahead 12 hours, so I’m good for the next 12 years.
  • Next year we should set the clocks ahead to when people have stopped making Daylight Savings jokes.

    I truly laughed out loud at the one about 12 hours. Cannot wait to share it with all my friends. Thanks so much for a much-needed laugh, here.
    By the way, your posts always arrive here, and about 10:00 p.m., at which time I call it a day and check to see what’s new with you. Still laughing! Suppose I’ll laugh for 12 hours? 😉

      I hope you do 😀

      Thanks for the info about the time. I started scheduling the joke posts for 4am our time when people told me they waited to read my joke before going to bed – I want my lovely readers to get plenty of sleep 🙂

    Oh my..I wonder if I have missed something 🙂

    Nope not till today YAY ! for a change I am on time! (or perhaps an hour behind)

    we remembered on Friday but forgot last night so we were up an hour earlier than we thought….but we are still two hours ahead of uk

    ‘Favorite’ isn’t a noun or a verb. (Not here, anyway!) 🙂
    The height of confusion is when resetting for daylight savings while travelling between time zones in a jet plane …

    Oh, thanks for reminding me about daylight saving. In America, it’s in a week’s time. Love the second one. Great solution! 😀

    You mean I have to groan an hour earlier?


  9. sharechair October 27, 2013 at 12:59 #

    They changed our hour earlier to a week later. Very confusing.

    Until I read this I had no idea the clocks did anything. When you are retired it’s not important anyway. Daylight savings is a DUMB idea…just like conserving water. Finite amounts can not be expanded by ‘saving’ them!!

      I so agree! Maybe it mattered a hundred years ago, but people work round the clock now, anyway, so what’s the point?

    My computer, cell phone and heating system all changed automatically and since I no longer wear a watch, it left me with only the clock on the microwave to move back one hour today. 😀

    The whole process seems rather meaningless these days…oh well…here we go again.

    My favourite had to be the Dali one. Genius 🙂


  14. Pseu October 27, 2013 at 21:40 #

    I used the hour change to my advantage today… but quite how, has to remain a secret.

    I put my phone back an hour before I went to bed on Saturday. Turns out it resets itself, so it ended up being put back by TWO hours. Confusing…

    I totally forgotten about the whole thing .. not important now when I don’t have to go to work. Grateful that a friend told me yesterday, because otherwise I been 1 for my eye examination or 1 hour late, what ever. I thought UK wasn’t going to change the clocks .. they talked about when I lived over there. Love 12hrs … ahead. *smile

    I didn’t have to change our oven clock back this summer – it was stuck Miss Havisham-style from last summer – obviously we didn’t have any power failures all winter, which, in itself, is a miracle. But it says way too much about me…

    We don’t change our clocks till next weekend here in North America. This must be very confusing for people who work world wide.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
