Do you set your clocks to the right time or a time different than the right time?
Ever since I was a teenager, I've set my clock at least 10 min. ahead. I love the feeling of relief I get, knowing that I have 10 min. more than I thought I had to get ready. It's a fun game for me. Of course, I'm always aware that the clock is ahead (Recently I make it an odd number ahead like 12 or 13, so I have to do the Math before I really know what time it is.) Ironically without a clock, walking in the woods or at a Mall, I generally can pinpoint the time without a clock. (I never wear a watch). I'm wondering how many of us are out there. I'd love to hear your own rationale.
I use to keep my wrist watch five minutes ahead. I did that until my work required me to coordinate with others. I had to coordinate delivery trucks and communicate with the drivers and customers. But, I keep my car clock five minutes ahead. I hate being late.
My clock is always some minutes ahead (usually 5 minutes; sometimes 3, sometimes 7 - I choose odd numbers).
I also like the feeling that I have more time that I thought I have
And I don't like to be late so that 5 minutes gives me that false time, just to be sure I will arrive at a time).
Ksenija, I LOVE the feeling that I have more time, and, like you, I usually choose an odd number so it's harder to figure out. I don't mind being late. I guess that's because I am so often. I don't like offending people, though and try hard not to

I love to hear stories about clocks. When I travel, I research clocks before I go, and then make it my challenge to find them photograph them, and find out more about them.Therefore, if you have a clock of any interest...
