I hate midday. God it's awful, I guess I just associate a lot of bad things with afternoon. Blech.
Any part spent awake and sober.
This was the sort of berserkly trivial question White Belt Man used to always ask.
What's your favorite drink at Starbuck's? What's your least favorite flavor of jellybean? What's your favorite silverware pattern? etc.
Various parts of each day can seem lonely.
Lately I'm lonely upon first arising from bed each day.
Other times I dread going to bed because of chronic insomnia.
And the insomnia is from loneliness and existential angst.
That short time before night; after the sun has set but it is still light.
The time between 2 and 3:30 p.m.
Morning. Dear god, mornings suck. All mornings. Ever morning.
That moment just before I get out bed around 6 AM.
"That short time before night; after the sun has set but it is still light."
That's my favorite time of day. I'm a night person, so that's the start of the day for me, in a way. I love sunsets. I abhor mornings.
I love dusk too! So beautiful.
I wouldn't hate mornings if they didn't mean Work. The fatigue, the rush, the traffic, the awful job, awful people. To me the sunrise is hateful.
Someday I want mornings to be: sleeping in, brunch on the veranda, taking a bike ride...
This part. Right now.
Late afternoon towards dusk, especially on Sunday. I get a very visceral reaction to it.
I'm pretty sure that was the time my dad would return home after a bender to wreck havoc on the household.
Oh God, not another fucking beautiful day.
There's something about Sunday night that really makes you want to kill yourself...And that creepy '60 Minutes' watch that sounds like your whole life ticking away.
Agree with R7. But the hour before and the hour after sunset are the BEST.
Mid to late afternoon. Hate it.
Yeah, if I had to choose a part of the day to hate, I'd choose afternoon/late afternoon as well approx 1:30-5:30.
I hate that time, too, R4 - totally depressing
Between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. - a mongrel time of day. I love mornings and evenings though.
R10, that's how I feel. Look at how much time we spend in our ONE LIFE at work. I think it's so sad that life and society is set up to work, work, work. Waste of life.
I hate a few parts of the day equally. The half-hour before I have to wake up for the job, that time in the mid-afternoon that just drags - 4-5 PM. Then, the 15 min before I have to go to sleep. I'm a night owl so I push media consumption up until the last minute typically. I also get depressed AFTER work, 6 PM when you get in the car and drive away. As much as I love to be off work for the day, Its a reminder that I'm single and miss having that person to call at the end of the workday.
As mentioned by some before, this is the part of the week/day I hate the most, RIGHT NOW. Late Sunday afternoon and evening. I must now shave and pluck my face to make myself pretty for the bitches at work who dont appreciate me!
Since I got cancer & retired, I don't hate any time of day.
I don't recommend the illness (though it does tend to change one's perspective), but I do suggest that anyone whose job is making him/her miserable make a serious effort to change jobs or retire.
Life actually is too short to spend it being unhappy.

And this. I don't become suicidal; however, Sunday evening means work Monday morning.
The moment when my alarm clock beeps.
The part of day when I get in the car and head to work.
Reading these comments really makes me appreciate my life just as it is.
I'm with R22 100%.
Am disabled for the past 6 years. NOt much to do; watch WAY too much TV.
Worst times (and my retired mother and aunt used to say the same!)Weekends, strangely; also Monday holidays.
DUring the day: 5:00-6:00 p.m. - soaps/cooking shows I LIKE are over, and news hasn't come on yet.
But when I worked (30 years; yes, I'm "old"):
If job (rarely) was boring: hated 10:00-11:00 a.m. and 2:30-3:30.
Hated the alarm going off; 6:30ish.
Hated the MOST: Sundays around 7:00 p.m.; knew what was coming tomorrow!
(Mind you; I'm single; am sure if was partnered, would like weekends and holidays more.)
I'm really, really lucky. While my job is completely boring, it generally doesn't stress me out, at all. And, the people, while also boring (generally), are not toxic, confrontational, or negative.
I'm a judicial clerk for a judge. I sit in my cube and read and write all day, everyday I get up and talk with coworkers from time to time, and meet with the judge sometimes, but it's generally very solitary and self-directed.
So, the Sunday night thing has luckily escaped my for as long as I've had this job. But, it's all too real for those around me, including my sister who is nearly ill every Sunday night. And that sucks, because then you lose out on basically 1/4 of the weekend as anxiousness and nerves set in. That's no way to live and I'm truly sorry to all the people who have to experience that (and I could always be one of those people in the future).
Seriously, I'm so used to my job, that I always complain how unexciting it is and it would be nice to have more engagement with the world and contact with people. But, everyone tells me I'm just going through "grass is always greener" thinking and that my job would be their dream job, even if it isn't very dreamy.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
