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?

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:

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…
