When welived in Aransas Pass Texes, it is right on the western edge of the EST zone. So DST meant that daylight lasted longer. Right up to 10 p.m. Try to get young kids in bed.

There is more. I use to paste a new poem above my sink every month. I think I need to go to the library and get his book of Children's Poems. I think it is called, "The Children's Hour."
I always think of this one in the spring. My grandmother used to make us recite it and also the one about "I'm a little teapot short and stout". I think my sister and I killed Vaudeville.

I know a little pussy,
Her coat is silver grey,
She lives down in the meadow,
Not very far away.
Although she is a pussy,
She'll never be a cat,
For she's a pussy willow,
Now what do you think of that? Anonymous

I had forgotten about that one. Okay, I will make a stupid confession.
When I was a small kid, I sat for hours down on the hill where a bunch of pussywills would grow. I did this for about three years until someone burst my bubbles. I was watching to see them turn into kittens.

Well considering I went from working evenings (til 11pm) and then had to be at work for 7am this morning I'm doing OK. I like the light later in the day, my biggest beef is the change in dates. I preferred it when we sprang ahead in April and fell back in mid October.

DST is much long that it used to be.

I don't like having to change the clocks, but I love Daylight Saving Time. I would prefer it stayed that way all year and didn't go back to Standard Time.

I wish I could edit the poll in the OP and add a choice "I'd rather have DST all year around."

Alas I cannot.
