I have a clock in my office on the wall…or more precisely, I had a clock on the wall in my office. For some reason, the ticking sound of clocks drives me crazy. When a clock is constantly ticking it feels like someone is tapping repeatedly on my temples. I can’t think of anything else while in the room. I can’t even sleep while wearing a watch. The sound will keep me awake.
I finally had it with this most obnoxious clock. As if to spite me and my admittedly quirky pet-peeve, the clock that was placed in my office ticks at a volume that could be heard in from across the city. Placing it on the wall also creates some sort of resounding chamber. My office was experiencing sixty 3.0 earthquakes each minute. My office plants committed suicide after several weeks of this.
I am available if Excedrin would like to reproduce this for some sort of viral ad campaign.
