We all hate the ‘Spring Forward’ ‘Fall Back’ routine. Yes it is only an hour, but it is a pain in the butt. Smart ass devices like computers and smart phones will change the time setting automatically. Everything else that has a damn time display has to be changed by hand.

There is a very old story about a broken clock, it is not broken, it tells the correct time twice a day!

A few years ago my wife bought me a watch, a snazzy thing that did just about everything but make coffee. But, it has really small buttons and I have really bad eyes, plus the 1000 page manual has been lost.

Fear not…. I have a solution to the problem.

There are endless ways to fix the issue,

regular post it note.

Post it note with tape

Post it note with double sided tape

Without doubt the simplest solution is the regular Post It note. Only the top of a Post It note is sticky so make sure you snip a little bit 3/8ths x 3/8ths from the sticky part,

Using a fine tip pen write -1 on it. Affix to your watch and you are good to go,

Of course this plan is only good for a short term application, Normal wear and tear will have the Post IT note off in no time, probably 15 mins.

You could use tape, but I am certain that people will spot it and talk about it,

The good news is that after a couple of days you will have become accustomed to the time change so you won’t need the dost-it note any more.
