Clocks Forward?

Clocks forward tonight?

Bah, this summertime/standardtime annoys me so much!

Re: Clocks Forward?

What really annoys me is that the clocks change on different dates around the world; most of my mornings are spent in recurring link calls with other countries, and having the time differences changing for a few weeks is an absolute cluster**** to manage the meetings and conference facilities

Re: Clocks Forward?

We sprang forward 3 weeks ago, on my birthday. I wish it would just stay like this now.

Re: Clocks Forward?

guys, how many times do I have to tell you?

You don't move your clocks back or forward by an hour - you simply turn them upside down. T'easy :-)

Re: Clocks Forward?

Hate this one, love the autumn one.

Swings and roundabouts and all that.

I prefer the extra daylight, going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark is sooooo depressing

I agree and with this one you really feel like the dark days of winter are behind you and summer's on the way.

Re: Clocks Forward?

Irritates me more than enough! Especially so, as my quadruple balls stopped rotating! It's a chiming wall clock, which needs to be removed from the wall before altering the hands. So sensitive is the blighter, it took me ages to reposition it, until the balls were spinning regularly again.:

my partner was chuffed to bits when he broke his love-making record at the weekend, lasting 1hour and 3minutes - until i reminded him that the clocks had gone forward

Re: Clocks Forward?

I like this one, too. It's optimistic, it says summer is coming and the nights are longer....

Not long 'til I wheel out the barbie and haul on me shorts again....

tsssst! (that's the sound of a wee beer being opened....)

I thought that was the sound you got when you haul on your shorts in front of the barbie....


I like this one too!! Hate it when they change back.

Wee beer? Bloody hell, the last time I was in Scotland it was "a pint a hevi", that sounds like a backward step...

I guess in the Autumn when the clocks go back he "owes" you 57 minutes - how does that work?

Do tell.
