If you haven’t noticed by now that the clocks have gone forward in the UK, then they have, and you’re really late for whatever important shit you had planned today.
The clocks going forward is always a bittersweet time of year, on the one hand we’ve got months of summer to look forward to – where we can enjoy rain but in a slightly warmer temperature – but on the other we lose an hour in bed, which is never good, obviously.
And then there’s the confusion when we do wake up – what time is it? Is that the actual time or has my phone/computer/alarm clock forgot to set itself forward? Should I have manually changed the time the night before or would that have just created confusion? Can we actually trust technology to be on point with our time management, or are computers only interested in world domination and the enslavement of the human race? And where am I?
WHAT TIME IS IT?!?

So yeah, it’s a frustrating and confusing time of the year. Luckily, the people of Twitter were on hand to remind us of the trials and tribulations we face via some amusing tweets.
The struggle is real:
I have absolutely no idea whether my phone has changed the time or not 🙄⏰

Don't blame it on sunshine
Don't blame it on moonlight
Don't blame it on good times
Blame it on the clocks going forward

I stayed up until 1pm to check phone is smart enough to change time on its own. It is. I slept 1hour less 4no reasons. #clocksgoforward

"Don't forget the clocks go forward tonight."
"Is that the good one or the bad one?"

Wondering how many people have woken up questioning what time it 'actually' is and what time it 'should' be… 😂#clocksgoforward

According to my phone, I just spent an hour on the toilet. #clocksgoforward

A reminder that you’ve only got a few hours until your oven clock and car clock are incorrect again for another 7 months.#clocksgoforwardAdvertisement

But don’t worry – it’s only seven months until we can have an extra hour in bed, so that’s something to keep us going…
