They might correct your English if they take a notion to ignore politeness.

Brits certainly do that. And American accents are even more in their face than British accidents for us, because of TV and movies.

I see where Florida has a bill before their state legislature to stay on Daylight Savings Time year round. I guess they may be far enough south that the angle of the sun doesn't affect their daytime as much in the winter.

I keep clocks on Daylight Saving Time year 'round as it's too difficult to gear up into an earlier time in the spring, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to see it vanish completely. I doubt that I'm the only person who doesn't like starting everything an hour earlier.

Daylight Saving Time may very well be the real reason some local offices open at 9:00 a.m. instead of 8:00 a.m, thereby knocking an hour out the business day.

There was a section of eastern Indiana that had, at least historically, refused to change. That may not be the case any longer as the rest of the state did switch. It seems like I read somewhere that the state had to mandate it; some people insisted uniformity was important.

Moderator ruling: Although Daylight Savings time is a more general topic, Carpathian Peasant is asking about LOCAL opinions on DST. Thread stays.


And, FWIW, I'm not fond of DST because, as a night shift-er, I hate it when it gets light so late in the morning.
