So, I had an odd DST experience. During the week, my wife watches an elementary school girl after school since we live across the street from the school. It’s a easy gig, and our two girls really like her.
So anyway, this week we couldn’t watch her because my wife had to go to a doctors appointment for my eldest, for her check up. Usually, I would be in my office basement, but since our youngest was feeling sick with a stomach bug, I was in the living room watching her until my wife got back.
Anyway, the DST part comes up because the young lady shows up at our door. It turns out her grandfather was supposed to show up, and he hadn’t yet. It was no problem for her to hang out, and an hour later, her dad showed up. Turns out, her grandfather completely forgot about DST, and thought he had an extra hour.
I just am glad I was able to watch her for that hour. If I had been in my basement, I would never had known she was at the door. Our door bell doesn’t work properly.
But it got me thinking. How many other people missing important dates or appointments. All because of DST.
