Yeah, I'd imagine it's even worse in health care, especially if you're dealing with vulnerable people.

I am sympathetic to the fact that sometimes people just have to come in, especially in management, but there's no good reason for him to be here today. There's nothing pressing to be done, and he's not nearly important enough to be here at all costs.

I mean, it's nice having it be light when you leave work and all. But now its just darker in the morning, which makes it way harder to get up. Leaving for work when it's dark out feels so much worse to me than coming home when it's dark.

Agreed. The mornings are terrible. Getting up today was nearly impossible. Now that I have a kid who will be in school in a few years, I also think about kids going to school when it's dark out.

Still, I'd even take just sticking with the DST schedule year round if it meant we don't have to do the stupid clock shifts.

There are plenty of businesses that have the "come to work unless you're dying" culture, and in this economy, he might not want to take any chances unless explicitly told otherwise.

I think that was the case early on, but I know for a fact that he's been told repeatedly that it's perfectly okay to take the time if he needs it. I've told him they're really great about it, and I've heard our boss tell him it's not a problem at all if he needs the time. He just has this weird stubbornness about it. I was talking to him earlier, and I said something along the lines of, "man, you look like you feel terrible. It really is okay if you want to take some sick time." His response was basically that he'd spent all weekend sitting around the house convalescing, and he really wanted to get out for a while. I really wanted to respond with, "well, that's great and all, but I'd really rather you not come get the whole office sick just because you're bored."

But then a few months ago I discovered a could eat yogurt with Lactaid. But now all of a sudden I can't again. I'm not sure how to make sense of it.

I just made a batch of coconut vanilla ice cream last night, would be rough watching other eat it while I watched. I'd lose some serious quality of life without a dash of cream in my coffee.

What kind of headphones?

You are all a bunch of whiny civilians talking about DST.

 

When I was deployed I was up at 2 or 4 am everyday and walked uphill both ways to my truck.

When you email a proprietor a question about a product you are going to buy and they take forever to get back to you. You'd think they'd be all over that question considering the product is a couple thousand bills.
