How many clocks do you have?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
For this household: The computer I am on that took care of itself, two cars, our two PDAs that took care of theirselves, our laptop that took care of itself, two cellphones that take care of theirselves, home phone, two clock radios, one "atomic" clock that takes care of itself, clock in bathroom, clock in guestroom, clock in living room, oven clock, microwave oven clock, wedding gift clock, dining room clock, which is 19 clocks, plus probably 2 or more I am forgetting. Who has me beat?

I don't... 2 actual clocks (one isn't even plugged in), and then the computer, TV and VCR. I think that's all.

I have 4 but two will change themselves. Then it's just my alarm clock and a heirloom clock that sits on my end table.

Spare bedroom: Computer, antique clock on hutch, phone, bedside, = 4
My bedroom: Clock radio, phone, travel alarm, vanity, = 4
Living room: VCR, antique clocks x 2, phone, wall clock, cable box, = 6
Kitchen: wall clock, pager, cell phone , wrist watch, = 4
Bathroom: clock on wall, clock on shelf, = 2
Sun room: clock on wall, clock on phone = 2
Basement: clock in sewing room, clock in laundry room, clock in furnace room, clock on phone = 4
Programmable thermostat: 1
Car: clock on dash: 1

Yikes! 28 (Obviously someone has a hang-up about being on time ) I guess it doesn't help that I collect antique clocks! I didn't count the ones that I don't wind and use for time, lol!
Thank goodness most of them change themselves!

Hrmn, only two small alarm clocks really... the car is already set to summertime for some reason unbeknown to us and the computers can take care of themselves. Oh maybe the ones on the oven and the microwave....... 4?
post #7 of 22
will have to count.....

three cellphones
three computers
four car clocks
one stove
one oven
one microwave
two coffeepots
six watches (I collect watches like some women do shoes, even though I hardly ever wear one, lol!)
one alarm clock
two dvd players
so......24 here

mind you, the watches won't get set until I put them on to wear them. One of them only "fell back" an hour about a month ago!

Don't forget any digital cameras! One of my peeves is taking pictures and then realizing the time stamp is off an hour. Even worse is when you're traveling and in a way different time zone and you realize all the pictures you took in broad daylight are stamped with 3 AM or something (time back home) and you have to add/subtract in your head to get the real time the picture was taken.

Oh crap...I forgot about the coffee pot and the digital cameras. I didn't bother counting all the watches that I only wear once in a while. I'm obsessed with time.

We have:

3 clock radios
1 clock on our Wii
2 wall clocks from Ikea
1 on our cell phone
2 on our computers
1 on our microwave
1 on our coffee maker

We live in a two bedroom apartment that's 890 square feet.

Can you say we have a time obsession?

I have 6:
2 clocks upstairs,
Downstairs: Living room clock, Oven, Microwave...then my cell.

My coffee maker was already an hour ahead (accidentally hit the button a couple weeks ago) and the TV clocks updated themselves.

I'm right there with you Heather, although I live in a one bedroom. I have:

1 wall clock
1 microwave
1 clock radio
1 watch
1 computer (sets itself)
1 camera
1 cell phone (sets itself)
1 MP3 player
1 VCR
=9

And yet, I still can't seem to get out the door on time in the morning; I'm always rushing for my bus!!

The only clocks in the house that Rob & I have to worry about are:

2 Cellphones (change themselves)
1 desktop computer (changes itself)
1 laptop computer (that thinks its 2004)
2 cars
2 alarm clocks
2 wall clocks
1 tv

which totals 11 clocks in just our room, cars, and pockets!

I cant even begin to count the rest of the house! Microwave, stove, 5 tvs, 2 dvd players, random clocks in other bedrooms, etc.

With that wedding gift clock, I don't think anyone can beat you. Here are mine:

Have to be reset:
4 of my watches
3 cars
microwave clock
stove clock
2 clock radios
clock in our son's room
clock in the family room

Don't have to reset:

5 computers
4 cell phones
6 TV cable boxes

Oops!

DH's watch was supposed to synch up with the NBS time signal from Boulder, CO. It didn't and, as he puts it, it is all messed up.

So, I have a total of 29.

We don't have to worry about DST for a few weeks, but I'll try to tally up the clocks:

3 atomic clocks
1 wind-up alarm
1 atomic watch, 1 that has to be reset
1 PC and 1 notebook, which reset themselves
2 cell phones (must be reset), 1 pocket PC (sets itself)
1 VCR that has to be reset, the DVD player has no clock
1 home phone/fax that has to be reset
1 car clock that has to be reset

1 cat who will sleep past 5 a.m. for a few days!

Well, I forgot the 3 VCR's and the PDA. So, my total of 29 is actually 33.
Now, I may win because we had a power outage after resetting the clocks. We had to reset all the 16 that we had already set which brings our total to 49. So many clocks, so little time.

We have 11.
3 in the kitchen (oven, microwave, coffee maker)
2 in the bedroom ( his and mine)
1 in the bathroom (it's an old little old am/fm clock radio)
2 counting the ones on our computers
1 from the tv in the living room if that counts
2-each of our phones has an alarm clock on it too.
