Forgot to Adjust My Analog Watches

It’s been a couple of days since we sprang forward for an hour. Since I have been using digital devices to track time (cellphone, laptop, iPad, Fitbit), the time automatically adjusted without me promoting these devices to do so. I forgot that I have analog watches which I like to wear every now and then. Imagine my fear when I was getting ready to go to work this morning and decided to wear my favorite black analog watch and looked at the time which says I am already half an hour late for work! Since we have more daylight now, it threw me off and for a while there I believed that I was already late indeed. When I turned on my car and saw the digital time display by my car stereo, I realized that my watch was still operating on DST. I proceeded to take it off and wind it to adjust the time while chuckling to myself for falling for it.

@Raine38 ....Oh, that's not good. Those are awful. I have them quite a bit. My diagnosis is severe depression with panic attacks. Not fun.

I am thinking of the same thing. Maybe Santa will get me an Apple watch for Christmas

I was! I have flex time so if I came in late I can still have a compete attendance if I will adjust my time to leave. But of course I do not want to stay late at work if I can prevent it.

@Raine38 I can see that. It is good that you have flex time though.
