On a shitty day, yeah.

Nope. Time is irrelevant for me -- whether it takes 12 hours or 16 hours, I don't get to leave until my experiments are over, so the clock doesn't really mean anything.

It depends on what's going on. If I'm too busy I don't have time to look at the clock. Hi Bella!

Sometimes, especially in the last two weeks. Maybe I need a break.

I agree, depends on the workload. But Mondays and Fridays seem to drag by at a snail's pace.

It depends on how heavy my workload is. If I'm having a particularly slow or boring week .. then, yes.

Yes, but there is very little to do in my job. I'm not busy int he slightest and it winds me up!

Sometimes, my boss is in the back of the building so he doesn't ever see me check the time. I wouldn't stare at the clock in front of him though, unless I had to tell him he needs to get to his appointment or something like that.

Some days are just slow. Some days I just want to fly out. Every day is different...I usually watch for a while to get to lunch.

Mondays are the worst. I just want it to be over! And by 4pm I watch the clock like every second. I swear it feels like at least 5 minutes passed by and it's only been a few seconds. lol

there are some days that i do watch the clock cause i feel like the day is dragging and there are some days when it's already 5 or 6pm that i don't realize that it's time to go home and what's better than that right? i guess it just depends on the day.

Being a high school teacher, I am ALWAYS watching the clock . . . I have each period for one hour, and so I try to always stay aware of what time it is and how much time we have left to get the things done that we need to finish!

Hmm, a little bit, for time management purposes - "Do I have time to sneak another peek at Sugar?" :-D

Sugar keeps my eyes off the clock for the most part, but once it starts getting close to the end of the day, my eyes are glued on the clock.
