I’m just impressed that someone in your house actually knows how to change the damn time on these things. Each year, rather than figure how to change the clock in our Subaru, we all just adjust. We are such adjusters here at Derfwad. Not a lot of ambition around here.
All Adither saysOctober 29, 2007 at 11:11 am
My Mac is fine. Hooray Macs.
But your post is pure hilarity.

My PC and laptop are not part of this gang of outlaws. *whew*
Howard saysOctober 29, 2007 at 11:28 am
Hahaha. To add to that, I walked into the office and had one of my co-workers ask, “Are you lost?”. I looked at him weird and asked what he was talking about.
Another co-worker had moved the clock in that office back an hour and he thought I had come in an hour early. …as if.
Deb on the Rocks saysOctober 29, 2007 at 11:36 am
I once worked where we had a receptionist who was 1. did not want to change the clock of DST and wanted everyone to adjust in their head, 2. set the clock ten minutes ahead so she could leave early, and 3. readjusted it to Lindatime when one of us lowly middle managers made the clock right so we wouldn’t get nabbed for being late and so our client didn’t think we were batshit crazy. During one conversation with her, I took off my rings and started lubing up with avon samples from the bathroom and was ready to roll, but I sent everyone the link to the US Naval Clock instead. So there, Linda, you whack job!
Mrs. Chicky saysOctober 29, 2007 at 11:37 am
I could really use that extra hour today, too. My kid woke up at the a*s crack of dawn. Think she’s defective, like the VCR?
Heather B. saysOctober 29, 2007 at 11:52 am
Every single year I manage to mess up DST and end up getting places an hour early. Like in 2004 when I had to work on Sundays and got into the office at 7 AM and it was still dark and empty.
This year I have it written down in big ass letters in my planner, on my calendar and on a post it note attached to my laptop. I will not be fooled – or be a fool – again.
joeinvegas saysOctober 29, 2007 at 12:03 pm
And this year it’s after Haloween.
But a few Brady’s short of a bunch? I like that one.
The Domestic Goddess saysOctober 29, 2007 at 12:09 pm
I’m thinking of moving to Indiana or Arizona so I don’t have to do this DST/EST, blah, blah, BLAH!
Velvet Verbosity saysOctober 29, 2007 at 12:10 pm
Oh, THANK YOU Bossy. I was stumbling around wondering when oh when DST was going to come around this year.
I WANT MY HOUR BACK!
stella saysOctober 29, 2007 at 12:12 pm
when do you think up this shit???
Manic Mommy saysOctober 29, 2007 at 12:14 pm
Mrs. Chicky, you forgot the “fer chrissake”
– NOT a stalker
Laura saysOctober 29, 2007 at 12:26 pm
You are one clever be-yotch! You crack me up and I don’t know where/how you come up w/these things! I hate trying to figure this techno stuff out-I am such a loser….
reen saysOctober 29, 2007 at 1:04 pm
Hilarious. My old microwave just decided to give up. There’s NO time – or any display whatsoever. Just darkness. I’ll be nuking by the seat of my pants now.
jen saysOctober 29, 2007 at 1:26 pm
My husband and I were just talking about how we should write a book for kids with great comebacks to bullies. Sounds like you know a few!
Momo Fali saysOctober 29, 2007 at 1:39 pm
Wait! We haven’t switched yet! You’ll have to post this again next weekend.
Get-Off saysOctober 29, 2007 at 1:39 pm
I think the USA should be run like a casino . . . no clocks! Insulate the gamblers, er, I mean consumers, um, I mean citizenry from time. Let’s just get lost, get free booze, and spend our money till it is gone.
Alice saysOctober 29, 2007 at 1:39 pm
you just freaked me RIGHT the hell out that i’d missed DST this weekend. (and.. uh.. somehow still got to work at the normal time and stuff. i’m SMRT.)
vuboq saysOctober 29, 2007 at 1:47 pm
You still use a VCR?!? Welcome to 1990, Bossy! *smooch*
OMSH saysOctober 29, 2007 at 1:59 pm
SEE! This is why I come here – because without BOSSY I would never have ANY idea that there were snafus about me.
I need to know about the snafus!
Oh BOSSY – my information highway.
merrymishaps saysOctober 29, 2007 at 2:02 pm
My alarm clock agrees with your VCR.
Fortunately, my cat helped me avoid any alarm-related issues yesterday by puking at what the clock thought was 2:36 a.m. The cable box, however, insisted was 3:36 a.m. He was right.
Jason saysOctober 29, 2007 at 2:14 pm
I actually had one of those moments last night before bed.
Chuckles saysOctober 29, 2007 at 2:17 pm
…And forty minutes late for work this morning.
Laurie Foolery saysOctober 29, 2007 at 2:26 pm
Atomic clock in the kitchen got it right. However, I am wary of atomic clock since he completely biffed it in the spring, forcing me to set it manually (twice, of course, ultimately). Good ol’ microwave just waits for me to tell it what to do. VCR always says
and so it is kept under a tablecloth. We don’t ask it much of anything.
Thanks for making my day, Bossy and Bossy’s appliances!
Meg saysOctober 29, 2007 at 2:35 pm
Atomic clock??? Hubby’s automatic-setting “atomic” alarm clock decided to reset itself back one hour. This caused much consternation on Sunday morning. They really shouldn’t try to save us from ourselves… let us reset the daggone things manually. Ugh.
super des saysOctober 29, 2007 at 2:37 pm
You crack me up.
sassy saysOctober 29, 2007 at 2:47 pm
My living room clock is going to drive me bazonkers for the next time months. My computer clock is like telling it that it’s momma’s so fat that she jumped up in the air and got stuck.
Lori saysOctober 29, 2007 at 3:06 pm
This is exactly why I live in Arizona. Unfortunately, my appliances are not aware of our location and change on their own.
Melissa in NZ saysOctober 29, 2007 at 3:10 pm
Bossy is a scream. I did notice yesterday that all our clocks show a different time. Some even show a different day. And we started daylight saving a month ago. **sigh**
Miss Britt saysOctober 29, 2007 at 3:20 pm
Thank God I was too hung over to notice.
Noelle saysOctober 29, 2007 at 3:35 pm
I like to buy appliances that have no clocks on them. Life is so easy. When the power went out last summer, I never bothered to re-program the microwave.
Jen M saysOctober 29, 2007 at 3:39 pm
Is it that time of year again? Here in the wild west we don’t know nothin’ ’bout no daylight savings.
At least in Arizona.
heartshapedhedges saysOctober 29, 2007 at 3:41 pm
This threw me off at first, when I read my computer time and saw that it was an hour earlier than I thought. Just one more thing to drive me closer to the edge
Brando saysOctober 29, 2007 at 4:35 pm
Those insults were seriously awesome.
kerflop saysOctober 29, 2007 at 4:43 pm
And this is why kerflop loves bossy so much.

Macs are ALWAYS right.
Have The T-Shirt saysOctober 29, 2007 at 4:55 pm
As usual, I was ahead of the times.
LAST week my blueberry and computer suddenly changed times (because I had them set WRONG somehow for Indiana, now that we change times like the rest of the world).
Anyway, what a mess that was.
nap warden saysOctober 29, 2007 at 5:15 pm
Well that explains alot! Husband and I were off all day yesterday!
Phoenix saysOctober 29, 2007 at 5:38 pm
Oh shit, daylight savings time already? Can’t we all agree that it’s stupid and just forget about it?
Tricia saysOctober 29, 2007 at 5:46 pm
What the hell time is it??
David saysOctober 29, 2007 at 6:10 pm
In my archaic paper daily planner that I write in with a pen, it clearly says that daylight savings time starts next Sunday. Gosh I feel so out of step with the times.
Smashed saysOctober 29, 2007 at 6:34 pm
Our appliances are fighting this week, too. We’re just planning to keep them apart, just like the cats.
Next week will be much more peaceful, once the laggards catch up, or fall back, or whatever.
motherofbun saysOctober 29, 2007 at 6:54 pm
We had dinner with some people last night who were all, “Oh crap its 9 p.m. We’ve got to go home and get him ready for bed.” They had only been at our house an hour. Once they realized that you fall BEHIND not AHEAD and that its not until next week, they were more relaxed. Course maybe they were trying to “escape”? Who knows?
Oh to live just one day in the house of Bossy.
nutmeg saysOctober 29, 2007 at 7:39 pm
“Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.”
(Elliot, I think.)
Exactly why I blog.
Leaf, probably... saysOctober 29, 2007 at 8:40 pm
Hrm… They may be in cahoots with my alarm clock. I set an alarm for 6.30 and woke up naturally at 6.45. When I questioned the appliance it blatantly denied there even was a 6.30 in the morning.
flutter saysOctober 29, 2007 at 8:48 pm
welcome to why I live in Arizona. No, really it’s the only reason.
Meghan saysOctober 29, 2007 at 11:15 pm
I so needed this post right now. It’s about as deep as I can think at this point in time.
Wayne saysOctober 30, 2007 at 8:04 am
We still had a few systems at work that were off. Argh – all those hours and patches last April still didn’t fix everything.
Mary Alice saysOctober 30, 2007 at 8:12 am
Has Bossy been hitting the Schnapps again?
William saysOctober 30, 2007 at 9:10 am
When appliances fight. Precious.
Queeny saysOctober 30, 2007 at 9:50 am
Sounds like you need a mediator.
Nilsa S. saysOctober 30, 2007 at 10:06 am
Oh how I missed my daily Bossy fix while on vacation. It’s good to be back!
byebyebertie saysOctober 30, 2007 at 1:01 pm
I love these corny appliances with their one-liners…
Mr Farty saysOctober 31, 2007 at 6:57 pm
So I spent ten.long.hours at work on Saturday night gettin them industrial strength com-pew-tah clocks reset to GMT, came home, switched on the PC and it already KNEW the right time!
I live in the UK. We’ve aleady gone back. Or is it forwards?
