My name is Roger Tuckerman, and I suffer from daylight saving time.
First, it has a negative impact on my emotions.
In the spring, when clocks leap forward an hour, people don’t get enough sleep. When people are tired, they get grumpy, and don’t laugh at my jokes! This lowers my self-esteem.
Second, daylight saving time is bad for my body.
Last November, when the clocks rolled back, I went to a nightclub, and drank and danced for an extra hour. But the next morning, something terrible happened: I had a hangover and sore knees!
Third, daylight saving time is bad for my mortality. If you don’t get enough sleep (when clocks leap forward), you’re more likely to get into a traffic accident, and you could die.
Daylight saving time almost killed me. On March 15, after the clocks moved forward, I was speeding to get to work because I overslept, and I smashed into a garbage truck. I destroyed my bicycle!
Fourth and finally, daylight saving time is bad for my career.
My biological clock wakes me up an hour before work, but when clocks leap forward in the spring, my alarm clock doesn’t wake me up, and I’m late every day for a month. Unfortunately, I haven’t found an employer who will put up with this, and I always get fired!
I hope that the government will cancel daylight saving time. If they do, it will help me get to work on time. Sadly, it’s that time of year again when I’m looking for a new job.
