It's my most dreaded time of the year again, the time we arbitrarily set our clocks back and watch as night falls in the afternoon instead of the evening until the calendars decide it's time to change it all back sometime in the spring.
I hardly want to even get into how much money America loses by engaging in this ridiculously outdated practice, which was supposedly invented to save energy — but whatever. The only desire I've really got is to move out to Arizona or Hawaii, states that don't turn back their clocks, and come back home only once we have normal nighttime hours again.
Luckily for me, I'm very much not alone in this sentiment (thanks, Internet!). Whether you're on my side, or inexplicably can't wait to shorten your hours of daylight, scroll along for 15 Daylight Saving (it's "saving" not "savings") memes that are terribly relatable.
Daylight Saving Time memes that will make you laugh... or cry:
This would have been literally me, who learned just last year that it's "Saving" not "Savings," because we're not talking about your bank account. But the virtuous thing would have been simply not to say anything. Alas, I am not noble enough to keep my mouth shut.
2. Because having it be dark at 4 p.m. is unnatural, no matter how long you do it for.
Am I right, or have you guys discovered a way?
3. Some of you DO push it too far, though.
Listen, I have all the compassion in the world for this (IMHO) sufferers of this unethical practice who are left with seasonal depression and who knows what other hardships as a result of Daylight Saving. But don't be a jerk about it, either.
4. Two Becomes One, Indeed
This seems like as good a time as any to inform you all that E! is airing its old-school, O.G. E! True Hollywood Story, and the one about the Spice Girls is on the roster. That's not WHY I chose to put this meme in here, I did because it's hilarious, but it definitely doesn't hurt.
5. That would make it so much cooler than what it is...
I guess reality is all a question of perception, anyway.
6. My man, my hero.
Famous last words right here.
7. Some of us need to plaster this away message for the next several months.
I apologize profusely in advance.
8. Sorry, parents :(
Wow, as bad as Daylight Saving Time is for the general population, hats off if you have to deal with children.
Don't you think?
10. This is exactly what I'm saying.
Though I recently learned that Daylight Saving Time actually doesn't help farmers out at all, it still seems fair to blame them (or anyone, really) for this unfair mess.
11. Savage Question!
Feel like I've hammered this one over your heads a few times already, so you can school all your friends who will want to add an "s" this weekend.
12. I see your hand, and I'll raise you two.
Very me, hello. Join my club.
13. Again, how do parents do it?!
I will not preface this by saying it was absolutely 100 percent your decision to procreate, but thank you for doing God's work and dealing with the day-to-day that comes with it.
I wish I had been a fly on the wall for this conversation.
15. Happy Sunday!
I'm sorry, I don't know what to tell you either other than I hope you enjoyed your extra single hour of sleep and your Sunday — because winter is coming indeed.
