Man Who’s Been Given 24 Hours To Live Not Thrilled About Daylight Savings
March 10th - Early tomorrow morning, Daylight Savings Time will take effect and clocks across the country will “spring forward” an hour. While many people are excited about the prospect of gaining an extra hour of daylight, a local man who’s been told that he only has 24 hours to live is less than thrilled about the time change.
“It’s bad enough that I just found out I only have one day left on this planet,” said Robert Steele, a 31-year-old from Tallahassee who was recently diagnosed with an excessive number of bullets in his chest. “Now I’m about to lose an hour of sleep...and about four percent of my life.”
Mr. Steele did say that, despite the inconvenience of losing an hour of his life, he was looking forward to the extra hour of daylight at the end of the day.
“Honestly, it has been a long winter, and I’m as ready as anybody else for the days to start getting longer again,” said Steele. “The timing kind of sucks, but it'll be really nice for the farmers who can use the extra hour of daylight to tend to their crops.”
