    Luckily Arizona and Hawaii (and sometime soon Florida) don’t have this issue. Also, luckily I already changed my clocks AS WELL AS the microwave.

    You press ‘clock’, punch in the new time, press ‘clock’ again, and you’re good. Well, I am anyway :)

    My problem is changing the clock on the stove. There are no number buttons. I have to punch ‘clock’ then either an up or down arrow, and go through the hour. (5,10,15,20….) Rather annoying.

    Where’s Jason? He could have all the clocks in the house reset in 5 minutes.

    Reset all my analog/digital timers (and watch) last night at 8pm. Will do the clock in my car this morning on the way to church … Worst to change is my Casio watch, which is both analog (hands) and digital. The digital part is easy .. the analog hands can only move forward, so I have to cycle them thru 11 hours .. and since the minute hand advances 1/3 of a minute segment every 20 seconds, you have to sneak up on the exact point so that both the analog and digital will be reading the same. Glad its only twice a year .. Fall is easier.

    Clock in my new car sets itself (off a GPS signal I guess). The clock in the old car was right 6 months out of the year (did have trouble remembering which 6 though).

    I live in Florida and I hope they don’t change from the present system…for what? To give tourists and extra hour on the beach? So many things will be messed up. Either the whole country does it, or nobody does it. I hope.

    It could be the dawn of a new age. Ore the setting of an old age. Still….. it might be something new.

    My car clock is always the last to get reset. Always fouls me up when I’m driving somewhere and it’s an hour off.

    In Arizona the rule is “spring back only if the thing you’re trying to record is coming from another time zone unless it’s British in which case wait two more weeks and then spring back.”

    Congress is responsible for this DST nonsense. Contact your Senators and Representatives and tell them to put a stop to this foolish antiquated practice.

    I set my car clock and four clocks in the house, including the microwave, last night before bed. My watch is one of those radio-synchronized ones, and set itself. The phone and computers always know what to do on their own.

    Bah, who the heck sets the clock on the microwave anyhow? (Checks previous posts) Wow, did not see that coming. Between Daylight Savings Time and the roughly once per month power outages and the 5 other time telling devices I have (every one of which automatically sets itself), I just never really saw the point.

    See, I was expecting a catch-22, where he was trying to reset the clock on the coffee machine, in order to make the coffee he needed to function effectively enough to know how to reset the clocks

    I never reset my microwave clock last fall, so today it’s the correct time and I didn’t have to do anything! Success!

    Find the manual. If you no longer have the paper manual, go online. Read it. Follow the directions step by step.

    Surprised by those that don’t seem to realize we already have Daylight Saving Time for about 8 months of the year and Standard Time for just a little over 4 months.

    I just call DST Dianne Standard Time, and make the mental adjustment when I look at a clock that isn’t wired into the world. Mental adjustments are much easier and less time consuming than manual ones.

    The RC factor (Resistance to Change) is alive and well in the Human Race. DST has been in use since 1966, 52 years and still we complain. Approximately 75% of the U. S. population was born after 1966, we should have adapted by now..

    Why is it always the man who is made to look like a stupid sap? I’ve repaired both of our microwaves and the one a friend (a woman) gave us because it stopped working and I (a man) fixed. Maybe male cartoonists actually are stupid saps. I think everyone who complains about daylight savings time should, this summer, be locked up every evening an hour before sunset, while the rest of us play ball at the park or enjoy a late picnic.

    For my family on CST, set microwave, bedroom clock, stove, and wristwatch clock, and the rest electronics set itself.

    Who bothers to set the time on the microwave anyway? I got it on the stove, the clock on the wall, on my phone, on my watch. Don’t need it on the microwave.

    Saskatchewan has no such problem and they’ve been that way since the 1970’s.

    Seven clocks – 2 auto and 5 manual updates. And my vehicle clock, which will spend the next 5 months an hour slow because it’s impossible to figure out how to reset it without screwing up all the station presets.

    Why do we have standard time and daylight savings time? why not stick to one or the other, it started during WWII, even though most factories ran 24 seven, so really no gain or savings, and again to what purpose now?

    If politicians read all this fine comments maybe they’ll think about getting us back to EST, CST, MST AND PST. I already told a Senator about this, so she better think about it. Day light Savings Time Sucks.
