Daylight spendings time

Yesterday was kind of amusing, since Daylight Savings went away in WA. Some shops opened at the “right” time (ie, when DST said they should) & others opened at the really-right time.

The first set pleased people who hadn’t changed, but also confused them when they ran into (literally: watched a lady walk straight into a sliding door & another push her externally-fetched shopping trolley into one) shops playing the second game.

I guess the change happened for Sunday in order to minimise the damage, & I have to say that watching a Monday like that would have been both more amusing & more catastrophic — /ME wonders what traffic patterns would be like.
