People complain that their Uber driver do not help them with luggage as if that is part of their duties. They don't want to exit their vehicle and mishandle the luggage. It increases the chances of danger, injury, or damage.

Daylight savings is such a waste. I was reading an article yesterday & read Arizona, Hawaii don't observe it. Hawaii being as close to the equator as it is doesn't need to do daylight savings since the amount of daylight really doesn't change year-round. For the states/countries that do observe it, how it's somehow someway an advantage for the duration it lasts? I don't know

After googling it it seems that benefit is supposed to be the extra hr in the summer. Still doesn’t make sense to me. Why it needs to go back. It’s not like we use the extra hr we gain in the morning.
On a deeper note lol who just can say what time it is like that? Like tomorrow a whole country of individuals agree tomorrow at 3 am it’s not 3 am it’s gonna be 2. And then the time comes and we say and observe time changed. It just seems kinda crazy. Like this is time lol

There's two different rumors/theories?? on why we have daylight savings. First it was during the war and it helped the soldiers, second was for the farmers so they can have better crops or something. I don't get how either one helped.

I don't think any other counties even have Daylight Savings. It's so depressing to get out of work and it's dark. It makes me think if this is really life. Go to work early all tired and get off work being miserable in the dark.

This! Excellent statements, esp being miserable going-to & coming back from work. I walked out my room @ 4:45pm last week & the moment I opened the door it was past sunset & little-to-no-sunlight left & I was like WTF? Just an hour ago the skies were lit lol. On top of freezing NYC cold, daylight savings is another reason why I despise winter man...I'm a bigass plant & I want & need that sunlight lol. Darkness=depression hence why seasonal depression is a very real thing

One reason why Seattle or the state of Washington have one of the highest suicide rate in the country.

It’s times like this that makes me wonder if companies will ever change the work week schedule. Work 4 days a week and 3 days off so people can have more of a social life. I think there was a recent article about how Microsoft in Japan is doing that and productivity went up!
