Lucky persons, here in India we dont have any such winter time
, so, all throught the year, the same time, though the sun rises at six only in the winter and at five in the summer(at my location).


Envying your one hour extra sleep.

I'm allowed to use ATS from my workplace. It doesn't have any negative impact on my work. I could also be reading a book or watch tv if I want to. My boss knows about it.

Oooh, such a enviable job, yours is, and even your boss knows that you are surfing ats
. I thought that these bosses were the persons who would just be waiting to pounce on the workers and yell at the top of their voice.


Perhaps, you are the luckiest person in the world.

Yeah, I'll get paid for the amount of hours that I'm here. I'll be extra tired tomorrow evening, that's all.

Forgot all about this - thanks for the reminder...

Too bad this only happens one time a year...it's not often I get one up on the system.

Winner, so in that case you work up till 2am, then the clocks go back an hour then you work that 1am to 2am again, so you must get paid twice for that hour



Make sure you mention that

I think, overseas, it happens tonight.

For us in the US, thanks to Congress, we have to wait until next weekend to "fall back".

I always miss that switch, waking up an hour to early. My cell phone shows the old time while my PC changes automatically. That's when I realize. Glad to get an hour more dailight.
