Are You a Clock Watcher

Other

I have a friend and she is ruled by the clock. Up at 7 am breakfast at 8 am dinner 12 pm teatime at 5 pm supper at 8 pm bed time 10 pm. And if we are out and in joying our self she keeps looking at the clock to get home to watch all the soaps. The other day we were in the tesco and we must have been runing late because she said she had to go. I was left with her basket. I had to ask one of the staff to put her items back. And the look she give me. . I told my friend and all she said was she had to get home be for the soap starts. Me I eat when I want to got bed any time go out and come home when I want. The clock dos not rule me. And she all so the same with rugby and football. She now turns the phone off. She dos my head in. Are you a clock watcher or you don't care about time like me. 🐧🐧

I try and keep to a schedule of waking up and bed at a similar time but not the end of the world if not. I take my children to gymnastics / karate so I do have to be on time for that.

nicolajaynehend agree life is for living and I certainly wouldn't be ruled by tv!! I like watching t.v. but only when it's convenient for me I wouldn't have a tv rule me!

Sounds like a type of ocd behaviour. Soaps are so unimportant and even if you miss one you can usually tell what has happened by next episode. I take it she cannot record and play back later? It sounds as if she had a very regimented and rigid upbringing and has got into bad habits. Depending on her age there is probably not much anyone can do unless she actively seeks help and wants to change. It must be very difficult to accept invitations, going out socially. I must admit it would drive me nuts and not sure I could cope with it. Is she married, got kids?

Hi lynibis my friend is not married and has no children. And she will not tape any soaps. She got to watch them that evening. She said she dos not like to watch them the next. She drives me crackers. If we go out we got to make sure she is back on time for her to watch her soaps. It's not only soaps it's all so rugby and football. She will stay in all weekend to watch it. 🐧

sadly I am. I try not to be so I've stopped wearing a watch unless I'm going out but I can tell what time it is roughly by where the sun is on the wall so I can't stop clock watching. I hate doing it.

Sounds odd and a bit obsessive if you ask me. I've never come across someone like that before but it sounds quite limiting. She must always worry about making it on time etc. I would push her to see someone if I were you!

Well, everyone has different schedule according to their routine lifestyle & work importance. But this is occassionally when you are going with the freinds & spent some time together. Because that is the precious time you have together, don't know whether that time will come again or not. But whatever you have, fully enjoyed it with freinds or relatives. So at that time, we have to skip watching the clock all the time..
