I like to buy these cheapy Wal-mart watches to wear out and about or cleaning the house, generally when I'm not at work, church or on a date with T. When I get the watch, I use the instructions to change the time and then chunk the paper. File 13. Where the important things go, right?
The problem is, when daylight savings time ends in the fall, my watch is off by an hour. And of course, I don't have the instructions to change it, because, well, you know, File 13 and all. I spend the next six months reminding myself to fall back an hour every time I look at my watch.
But today! Today, I get to look at my watch and know it is again correct. I have thought of three solutions to my problem:
#1: The Obvious-don't throw the instructions away.
#2: Buy two watches and immediately set one for daylight savings time and one for regular time.
#3: Get rid of the ridiculous end to daylight savings time!
Cast your vote please. Personally, I think #2 is very creative and #3 is the best solution for many other reasons than just my watch. But that's just me.
