    I am constantly looking at the clock... When there isn't a clock around I usually ask my boyfriend (every 5 or 10 minutes), what time it is; aha he gets so annoyed. Don't know what I'm waiting for; just an avid clock watcher

    Every day for about 5 years when I glance at the clock, it is always 12:34 or 2:34  I will even wake up at night and look at the clock at that time.  it makes me wonder who and what message I am receiving.

    It's Always 11 After Or 11:11

    For a few years now, every day when I glance at a clock, doesn't matter if it's my phone or the car or the clock on the stove, it's 11 after the hour. On average, 7-8 times a day. If I wake at night, almost always it's 11 after. My wife Thought it funny and even joked with me...

    12:34 And 11:11

    12:34 was a time we celebrated in college, and it is still a happy thing. Time to give each other kisses. 11:11 is the wish time my ex introduced me to, and I wished 100s of times to have her back, but all for nothing… but now I still see it all the time and I hate it

    Always 10:01, A.M. or P.M.   If I happen to look at the time it is almost always that time. Haha I'm actually a very intense clock-watcher, I tend to look at it about every 2 or three minutes. BUT if I'm at home (when I don't stare at the clock) its alway 10:01. haha...

    I look at the clock every time it's 9:11, I look at the clock at other times throughout the day too, but always at 9:11. I don't know why. It used to bother me, for reasons I think many may get without my having to specify, but it's not so bad now. But I still do it.

    I usually look at the clock at midnight, and then I realize I need to get to bed. At work, it's usually 10:30 in the morning, and then I get upset because there is still a long time to go.

    Everytime I want to check the time it is 12:13, 11:13, 10:13, etc. Weird! Or if I look at the clock often, I magically check the time every 3 minutes (for example: 12:03, 12:06, 12:09, 12:12). Weird again!

    Changing Time

    I don't know why or who have decided changing our time, twice a year, an hour ahead and then an hour behind.  I'm not crazy about the idea.  I think with age we feel it too.  Why do we need changing our clock / time?  Why can't it be the same way always?  What is the point...

    I stare at the clock

    and wait til the time becomes 12:34 or 2:34 just so I can say it out loud. And I don't even say it as a time is say "it's 1, 2, 3, 4 o'clock. Or if it's 5:30. I'll say "the time is now 6." Or if it's 12:04 I'd say "the time is now 3."
