Daylight Savings Time. - check your receipts

Once again, check the time on your receipts. When there is a time change, sometimes it doesn’t get changed at the register. I make it a habit to always check the receipt times year round and report any discrepancies on my report. It’s partucularly important now.

And be careful when driving. Auto accidents statistically increase the first week of day light savings time. Wish NY State would drop this silly change over !!! 26 other states have done so...
I am curious where you came up with "26 other states have done so". As far as I know, only the states of Arizona and Hawaii have opted out of daylight savings time. Plus the overseas territories of American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the United States Virgin Islands. But they are not states, and even if you count them, the total would only be 7, not 26. Please let me know the other 24 states, because thtis would be critical information as i travel.

Shopping Southeast Pennsylvania, Delaware above the canal, and southwestern NJ since 2008
Some other states are working on, Florida being one of them. But 26, um, maybe work in progress and on the ballots but not already a done deal that I know of.
Washington is considering a change, but we sprung ahead today.

Hard work builds character and homework is good for your soul.
Idaho talked about it, but the legislature tossed it out before they even viewed the bill/
I think time changes suck. I hate it both times of the year. I don't know anyone who thinks it's great or even just okay. How it has lasted this long is beyond my comprehension. Studies show that the "spring forward" causes more traffic accidents due to people losing an hour of sleep (CBS news excerpt).
California is talking about going on permanent daylight savings time.

Don’t forget our earthquakes. Out next big one is coming.
Chicken Little...

My sister lives in Palo Alto, she remembers a big San Francisco earthquake pretty well, I think it was around 1989 or 1990...?
Arizona, Hawaii, and Indiana did not change clocks for DST. Indiana may be different now; I have not been there in years.
It really makes no difference to me. I awake when I do and go to sleep when I'm ready.

As for receipts, I always check them. Just recently, I noted on a shop that the receipt times were not correct.But, I do appreciate your reminder. It is a good one.
Inertia. Plus there is a huge lobby for it. Think sporting equipment, jogging gear, barbecue grills and supplies, on and on.

Personally, I agree with you- it sucks.

I dunno, I barbecue in the dark, I run in the dark, my kids played sports outside in the dark, what difference does that make?

What if we just had DST year round? Would that really make a big difference in energy use?
Well yeah, we all do that stuff in the dark sometimes, especially in warm climates where we can barbecue and play outside all winter. But in general more outside activity gets done in the daylight, and manufacturers of outdoor stuff lobby heavily for longer days in the summer.

Think you have it bad losing an hour... the folks in the year 1752 lost 11 days.at once.
Well I be damned I forgot to adjust the time on my digital camera so even thou my shop was done at 5:37 PM actual time my camera said 4:37 PM. Shop had to be done between 5 PM and 8:30 PM. Good thing store was closed due to maintenance issue. I took pic of sign stating such and store exterior photo. Both pics had 4:37 PM in meta data. It won't matter on this shop but saves my ass on other shops. I immediately corrected the time on my digital camera. My phone is crap for pictures.

Reminder to everyone when store is closed for any reason always take proof be it a sign or exterior photo showing such. In our industry it is known as covering your ass.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
I do miss Arizona no stupid clock change.
