Default Daylight savings started!

Here in South Australia, daylight savings time has started three weeks earlier than usual.

my boss: "I wasn't sure if daylight savings starts tonight or tomorrow night, but I set my clock back this morning just to be sure."
me: "umm... it actually started last night, and you're supposed to set the clock forward an hour".
my boss: "Oh. That explains why the eftpos machine time is 2 hours ahead."

aaahh, the CSers down under are hurting my brain... now I don't even remember when Daylight savings goes into effect in the northern hemisphere... (I think our cute saying makes more sense though, spring forward and fall back... good fighting terms )

I usually remember it as "Hey, you're late to work" and "hey, why are you so early?"

It works for me...

According to my (American-made) calendar, it ends on November 2nd. Which happens to be when it was meant to start here except they changed it.

Spring forward, autumn back doesn't have the same ring to it.

I remember it by paying attention to the hundreds of media messages saying "Daylight Savings starts next week/tomorrow night/tonight" that we get.

i never remember unless someone asks me "Do you know what time it is??" or my alarm clock (which happens to be a cell phone) goes off earlier than usual.

I remember by thinking "Hey, I get paid an extra hour at work tonight" or "Bastards, they're ripping me off!!!"

How do I get paid for that? I work Sundays and get off at 2am.

My supervisor is going to hate it if I go over the time sheet. As a student I'm not allowed to work more than 20 hours on a campus job (I'm obviously a horrid worker since I'd usually come in 15 minutes before he started enforcing it).

ohhh yes, daylight savings hell gyahh
I wound up waking up later than I thought because I forgot to set my clock back (and I've still forgotten it, my lappy, work clocks etc. are all fine) and was nearly late for work. A few people were late.

EDIT: I've now actually set my clock correctly. It's a Pentel thing that doubles as a pen-holder and is shaped like a man.

I forgot to mention, the weekend night shift guy left a note saying "REMEMBER DAYLIGHT SAVINGS STARTS THIS WEEKEND" in the communications book, so I deliberately made him think I'd forgotten by turning up 2 minutes late. (I'm usually 5-10 minutes early)
