Often referred to as "standard time," daylight wastings time requires that people set their clocks back an hour in autumn so that the sun will set earlier in mid-afternoon. Then, in the spring, when people return their clocks to true time (a.k.a. daylight savings time), people are forced to get up an hour earlier and lose an hour of precious weekend/sleep time.
Morning Person: I'm so glad we're returning to STANDARD time. I can't STAND getting up when it's dark outside.
Night person: Oh, you mean daylight wastings time? Doesn't it bother you that the sun now sets at 4:30 and the days are still getting shorter.
Morning person: No, I go to bed long before then, so I don't know when the sun sets.
Morning person: I'm so glad we're returning to daylight savings time. I was starting to feel like the day was half over by the time work starts at 8:00 AM.
Night person: I'm glad to be off of daylight wastings time, but now I have to get up an hour earlier. Why can't we just leave our clocks set to true time (a.k.a. daylight savings time) without playing practical jokes on my circadian rhythm?
