    I tend to have a clock in every room, but the bathroom. And in someways 3 in the kitchen. I have one usually on the wall, then there is usually a stove clock, and then the microwave clock. And I also wear a watch.

    However, my only exception is a traditional bedroom alarm clock. If I could see the time then every time I woke up I'd be checking the time. So instead I just have my phone within arms reach just in case I NEED to know the time.

    DW has been at the place (local council) where she works for 25 yrs... there was talk of someone printing out a certificate saying well done but in the end they did nothing (which was probably safer for them than someone daring to print her out a certificate ) but no thank yous or expensive watches!

    I have many watches... most are Disney, some are jewelry style bracelet watches, a couple are serviceable good old Timex. I have a real problem with pot metal so some I can't wear for more than a couple hours.

    Every single one but ONE Timex needs a new battery.

    So? I mostly use my phone.

    That is ridiculous! In my Dad's place, when you've worked there for 5 (or perhaps 10?) you get an extra days paid holiday per year you've worked there. They haven't capped it for him even though he's been there 35 years!

    It doesn't surprise me one little bit there's no appreciation at all, you are just taken for granted being a public sector worker.

    It's the same with Chris' organisation, like you say nothing and not even a thank you and when you retire, well if you are lucky you will get an email from the head of department









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    The head of her department is well known for asking when people are leaving so he can take that day off. He hates "speeches". Last time someone left, the lady had been there all her working life, earning less than 20k the whole time, and the other staff decorated her desk with pixie dust, good luck cards and a good luck banner. They were all told off and told to remove the decorations immediately. In the event, none of her managers came in and she went home as usual with nothing having been done or said.

    Amazing isn't it?

    Pathetic is more like it! :mad:

    But back to watches, I can't go without mine. I've got a Citizen that I've had for years.

    But I'd much rather have the Tag Heuer!

    And, like John, I take it off when I'm working on my computer.

    Tom I bought my Tag Heuer on sale and saved over $800.

    I work for my favorite Uncle (Sam) I'm in my 26th year. I received a pin at 10, 15 and 20 but nothing for my 25th.

    Cool John. I'll have to "watch" for Tag Heuer sales (I'm learning these puns from Terry). After my earlier post I had checked their retail prices at a couple of places.

    Then I got back up off the floor.

    I work for a mammoth, unnamed financial institution. Here's what I got for my 20th:

    The artsy lighting on it is the flash on my cell phone camera. In real life it doesn't look that cool. Although, it is a heavy little thing. Wouldn't want to drop it on my toes.
