IIRC, some people get addicted to the smell of coffee and can't function
without it. Not even to make coffee.
My microwave has an "auto" feature. The clock comes up in a "not set"
state which does not look like any time, so it's not confusing. The only
time that clock gets set is when someone sets it accidentally.
48 days until the winter celebration (Monday December 25, 2017 12:00:00
AM for 1 day).
I've got a few small cheap battery-powered clocks that use
pushbuttons to set the date, time, etc.
Unfortuneately, over the years the button contacts must
become oxidized or otherwise marginal.
So... go to press the button to change the hour, minute,
date, etc., and... nothing happens.
I end up using a screwdriver point to bang on the button
several times to get the push to "register". When it does,
it advances the thing "one hour". Then bang on it again to
get to the next hour.
The easiest clock to set is the analog one -- just turn the
dial that moves the hour and minute hand!
Here's a solution for you: Just double-up on clocks.
Keep one on standard time, the one next to it on DST. In the winter,
just put the DST clock face down on the table and read the one set to
standard time. In the spring, just reverse which one is face-up and
which one is face-down ;-)
If your wife catches you looking at another woman, turn to her and say
“I’m sure glad you don’t dress like that.”
I worked midnight to 8 for 11 years but the stressful part on my body
was I did not have to go in if there were no calls so it really was no
schedule. I might sleep all night, do stuff all day then have a busy
night, maybe even called in early. It was great for a several years
then it started wearing on me.

My dad worked swing shifts for a long time. It was seven days on 1st
shift, two days off, then seven days on 2nd shift, then two days off,
and then seven days on 3rd shift, and two days off.
That messed with his sleep cycle, too!
Worked swing shift in the steel mills, but shifts swung every month.
Worst damn thing. I don't know why they didn't have fixed shifts, but after half a year I
found a 2nd shift job elsewhere at almost twice the pay.
My least favorite shift. Worked mostly 3rd shift for the rest of my blue collar career,
which lasted 14 years. But always fixed shift.
I couldn't stand 2d shift. That was how I got 3d shift in the first
place. We were on a rotating shift plan and I swapped 3d for second
with everyone. Pretty soon someone asked if I just wanted to be
permanent 3d shift and the rest was history. I stayed in 3d shift
until I moved to Florida.
When I was a young single guy I really liked "split second" tho.
(12:30 to 9) You got off in time to go party with your buds and still
get to sleep in. They forget you weren't there when they started and
think you are bionic when you are still ready to go at 2am ... a few
nights in a row.

I did the 2nd a little less than a year, and never again. Mostly 3rd.
The 2nd shift took you out of any "normal" semblance of social life.
It's the same reason I stayed with the merchant marine for only
a year. Didn't like the isolation.
