Daylight savings time suggestion

As I was sitting in a waiting room the other day, the security guard offered an outstanding suggestion with respect to the lousy annual ritual of losing an hour’s sleep when we advance the clocks. It may not have been his original idea, but it’s a good one. He asked:

“Why don’t we set the clocks ahead an hour at noon on Monday instead of the middle of Sunday morning?’

    Or even better, at 4:00 on Monday afternoon so the last hour of the workday disappears? That certainly beats losing an hour of sleep or a lunch hour!
