Sigh. Ithought it was 11 so I fixed my lunch. 45 minutes later, coworker asks why I'm eating lunch an hour early (she's been sitting here the whole time). Stupid new clocks with no numbers on them.

It's gonna be a long afternoon.

There are a few different one's available. I'll see which one is a good fit. Won't get too excited, I'm not overly optimistic.

I know. But most clocks seem to have either no numbers or just 12-3-6-9. I need numbers, all 12 of them.

Look at it this way, it was lunchtime HERE when you ate! Along that line of thinking, you should be allowed to go home when it's quitting time here, too!

Ever seen a Movado watch? Their signature is a face with a single dot at 12 o'clock.

Yes I have. A watch I can see, but not an office clock.

The clock I Had was fine, but one guy was so moved by his 20 or 25 year anniversary recently, he custom ordered a ton of these clocks (with our logo, motto, etc.) and replaced the already-existing clocks with these.

Most people should be able to read a clock without numbers. Numbers are helpful, yes, but not necessary.

I agree that clocks aren't necessary. I probably fee that way b/c I have the time on my office phone, on my computer in the right hand corner, when I'm out of the office I can see the time at a glance on my cell. There are buildings with huge digital clocks.

I never wear a watch. Althought I do like the white ceramic watches more for the style. I might get one of those.

I work with a few very smart engineers who are the same way: They need numbers on their clocks.

Just posted this on FB, but I still need to complain:

How the hell is this guy going to go moving up an assignment by a whole freaking week? There is a schedule for a reason. People make plans according to the schedule that HE provided and now he's going and screwing it (and everything else for which time has been budgeted) all up. I am SO pissed right now!

Numbers? Not necessary, but there should be at least some sort of marker/placeholder/lines where the numbers would go. I can easily understand someone not being able to guestimate where the 4 or 5 start and end.

This. If I'm sitting at work, every one of these would be a place I'd check before looking at an analog wall clock.

When I started subbing, I asked my husband to get me a watch with numbers and a second hand for Christmas. Classes end at strange times (like 11:17) and not all of the rooms have working clocks. Also, you are not allowed to take phones out while you are working with the students.

I don't wear one when I'm not working, though. I get too anal retentive when it comes to time and not wearing a watch helps me to calm down.
