when you want to know the time... do you look at your WATCH or your CELLPHONE? or is there any other piece of work that you use to see the "time"? I usually look at the "computer" to know the time because I am always in front of the computer blogging.

When I am out and about I will use my cell phone like a watch. At home my I will look at my oven clock. Or I will look at my computer since I am always on it anyways..

I never wear a watch, so I'm always checking my cellphone. While on the computer I look at the time in the bottom corner. I rarely ever look at the clocks on the stove or wall anymore. I have put one in the bathroom though. It has become a necessary convenience to have one there, that way I'm not running late while getting ready for work. :-)

it depends. if i'm in front of the computer i will just look at the time on my computer. if i'm outside and not in front of my computer then i'll look at my watch coz most of the time i'm wearing one anyway. if not then only i'll look at the time on my mobile phone ;)

Mostly, I am not using my watch. When I need to know the time, I will see to it in my cellphone. Sometimes, I am using my cellphone to set in an alarm every hour so that when the cellphone alarm, I know the time already.

I look at my watch, but sometimes if I forget to wear it then I will take a look at my cellphone which is always in my bag. So, if I'm too lazy to open my bag then I will just ask the time to some strangers passing by...lol..

LOL... strangers and passerby are very convenient.. but the problem now is that... they too sometimes don't wear wrist watch... but if they are very accomodating, they look in their cellphone.

Hi there, if I am surfing net surely I will look at the displayed clock on the screen of my computer. I could also know the time by looking at the wall clocks. There is one in my sitting room, one in the kitchen and the other in my bed room. If going outside I look at my cell phone to see the time.

I don't have watch anymore. LOL. I always count on my cell phone to see the time. or checking my computer clock when I'm using the computer. but when I'm out of my room, the living room still has a clock displaying the time. however, I rarely check the time until suddenly hours have passed quickly and unknowingly.

I know a lot of people who are not time conscious too, I am sometimes like that too. Thanks.

I usually look at the big clock in the sala. It is so big and the numbers are bold that I can easily see it even from afar. When I'm out of the house, it's my wristwatch. You know me , I'm not so fond of using cellphones especially when I'm out.

Yup you are right. Same with me. I just need it to check on my brother and to wait for "lolo's" call. thanks

If I'm at work, I always look into the computer, my watch and cellphone =D It's weird, isn't it? There are times that I tend to forget checking the time in my PC so I used either my wristwatch or my cellphone. If I'm on my way home, I always used my wristwatch.

Good for you, the wrist watch still serves it's purpose, a lot of people forget about it already and I am one of them. thanks.

It varies for me. I usually look at my cell phone, especially when I am running errands. But if I am in my car I tend to look at the clock that is on the car's dash. If I am at the computer I will look at the time there. If I am anywhere in the rest of the house I will look at one of the clocks that are in my home. I haven't worn a watch in years, so I have to rely on these other methods on when I want to know what time it is. LOL

If I am at the computer, then that is where I look. If I am at home, generally the living room clock. All other places, I keep my cell phone handy.

Of course, the cellphone is always handy. thanks.

Hi ruth.. I had no wrist watch for seven years I guess. Wow, I havent thought about it until now that I did not wear any wrist watch for seven years already. The last time I had my wacth was during my first year in college. I accidentally dropped it and was broken. After that, I did not buy any watch at all. Hmmm, maybe I will include in my birthday wishlist the wrist watch. I always check the time in my cellphone. My cellphones have different time. One is I set for the time in the Philippines, the other one set for the exact time here in DK and the other one is 10minutes advance from the time in DK.

Good thing the time difference between here in Maine and the Philippines is 12 hours so I don't need another watch to know what time it is there. I only have to consider if it is a day or a night. Take care my friend.

i often look at my phone. of course if i am in front of the pc, i will look at pc time :) even if i have a watch, funny i still grab my phone and look at the time in my phone. i guess i was used to it already :)

I think so, because a lot of people are using cellphone and it is the most convenient piece of work.

Yes, I usually look at the computer. I used to use my cell phone but now that we don't get cell coverage at our house I had to switch to land-line and it doesn't show me the time on the handset (now there's a feature that would be useful instead of the voice changer)! I also check the TV if it is on...but since that involves locating the remote...lol. It is so funny that you brought this question up because I was JUST this morning thinking that I probably need to put a wall clock up in the family room (how weird is THAT?!?)...because I can't just check the time quickly without the cell phone.

If I'm home, I look at the clock in the kitchen. I don't wear a wristwatch and when I go out, depend on clocks in stores or libraries or occasional clocks in town plazas. If I'm really desperate, I'll ask someone directly.

I don't use wrist watch too. Thanks.

It depends on what I am doing at the time. If I am sitting in front of the computer it's the computer clock. If I am going back and forth in the house trying to get things done it's the cable box clock. When I'm in the car I use the clock in there. The only time I use my cell phone clock is when I am out somewhere like the store or the doctor's office.

So looking for time is no problem with you I guess. THanks.
