It DOES cause havoc twice a year at computer centers and for scheduling anywhere there is 24 hour staffing. Accidents increase when the change happens. God knows how many people show up late or early for work and appointments.

I agree. I have heard stories from "it's done for the farmers", "it was done to save energy during WW2", "it was done for children going to school",....

 

What it does is cause problems for everyone from work scheduling to setting all those clocks we seem to accumulate.
