The idea is to save energy by getting you home before dark.. Of course you go to work in the dark.. But the effect is to leave more daylight for things like playing golf after you get off work.
Same thing could be accomplished by leaving the clocks alone and simply changeing the hours of operations and the lyrics of a song or 3 depending on the season.
For example in January Dolly sings: Working 9 to 5
And in July.. Working 8 to 4
And "Five o'clock world" becomes Four O'Clock World In the summer.. Simple.
But .. Well.. Costs millions of dollars to change the clocks 2x a year. UNLESS
There are 4 clocks in my bedroom 3 will change automatically (Two are computers and the 3rd is my Atomic Watch) The 4th is buried and I really do not care what it says
There are 3 clocks in my Radio room.. I will eventually change one
And the dash clock in my car (The one in the MH is buried just now)
Atomic clocks self adjust every night..
Oh, the clock I donated to the Church which hangs in the social hall.. Atomic as well.
I like those Atomic clocks
ME: (Back when I was working) THe official time clock is running a bit slow.
Co-worker: Compaired to what
Me: My watch
Him: And what did you set your watch to
Me: The clock at the other end of the hall
Him: And who set that
ME: the National Bureau of Standards, it's an "Atomic" clock set by radio control from WWV.
Him: ... (silence).
