On Why I Hate Daylight Savings Time

Dear Daylight Savings Time,

Please go away. I want Standard Time back.

I want Standard Time back now.

You have wrecked my sleep schedule.

I can’t get up in the mornings with Standard Time. I definitely can’t get up with you.

Yes, I like that it’s daylight when I leave the office. That’s nice.

But, I also need my rest. I’m delicate. Lack of sleep makes me snippy.

The daylight in evening is a benefit I can forego.

Please go away, Daylight Savings Time.


A really sleepy person
