How Badly Does Daylight Saving Screw You Up?

If you're in North America, tonight is that horrid night when you lose a perfectly good hour of sleep through no fault of your own. Yes, at 2AM Eastern time, responsible clock owners are all supposed to move the little hand ahead one hour. Does this time travel ever screw you up?

Maybe you've got a clock you always forget to change. Maybe your phone won't cooperate and will refuse to recognize the change. Maybe your phone's alarm will wake you up at the wrong time. Or maybe you'll just really miss that hour of sleep you got swindled out of. Or hell, maybe you're that perfect human whose clocks are never off and who's already planned to get in bed an hour early tonight to meet the change head-on. What's your strategy?
