Tap Tap.

I could tell you all how much my work life sucks right now, but I’ll spare you the boringness of my work world. Just know that it is full of the suck right now. Full of it.

Instead I will tell you about one of my many neurotic behaviors.

I am a clock watcher.

Specifically my watch.

I lose my mind if I forget it.

Now, I know that my phone has a very handy big clock on it, I also know that my computer has a very nice clock on it.

They just don’t do.

If I don’t have my watch on, I make myself mental tapping, and looking at my arm all day. Specifically I will tap my wrist where my watch should be.

I am obsessed with time. I have been forever. Since I first learned how to tell time, I have had a watch on my arm.

I am right handed, and wear my watch on my right hand. That is weird, most right handed people wear their watch on the left. I don’t know why I wear it there but that is where it goes.

I have turned around on many trips into the office, to go home to get my watch. I have gone and bought a cheap one to get me through the day before, I now leave a spare in my car for my forgetful or super running late mornings.

I am a dork. Still be my friend?

    That’s cute! I used to be a slave to the clock but gave that up a while ago and it’s been good. Mind you I just replaced that obsession with others. 😉

    So ironic! I haven’t had my watch on in two days and I was telling a coworker today that I was slowly losing my mind because I haven’t had it. E was playing with it and now it’s not working. I have spares, but it just didn’t happen in my rushed state the last two mornings. Plus with running outside using a Garmin (hugical), I have a brilliant tan line where my watch is supposed to be. I swear I grew 4 more grey hairs because of the no watch situation this week. Blargh.

    I don’t wear a watch, but last week, the cd player in my car broke (as did the clock, simultaneously, since they got hand-in-hand) and one day on my way to class I realized I didn’t have my phone. I knew I had left the house about 10 minutes before, but still had NO GRASP of what time it was. I was freaking out, hahaha. I feel your pain!

    Wow, and I thought my OCD was bad.
