Was I Wasting Time? Are You 10 or 11 Hours Ahead of Me Now?
Questions we ask ourselves because of Daylight Saving Time...
My workdays are composed of many voice and/or video Internet calls to complete interviews and debates for podcasts and for business development on behalf of my own company or other companies. For me, as of Monday, November 8, 2010, I will have to ask myself when making phone calls to companies in much of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, "Are they one more hour ahead or behind me in time than they were last Friday?"
And then I opened a copy of this book to find a very interesting set of statements that remind me of my Dad's response to "Have a nice day:" "I am offended by your command."
Robertson Davies wrote in 1947 in The Diary of Samuel Marchbanks, "I don't really care how time is reckoned so long as there is some agreement about it, but I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind. I even object to the implication that I am wasting something valuable if I stay in bed after the sun has risen."
