Does the ticking of a clock drive you crazy?
It's 4 am. You wake up, and can't get back to sleep. Does the sound of the ticking clock wear on your nerves, and why?
I actually find it calming. Nothing like a ticking clock or a fan to put me to sleep.
It makes me feel that my life is getting over with those ticking sounds! So i try to listen to something else that makes me feel UP!
Ticking of a clock is something similar to heartbeat. It reassures me that life is ticking and all is well. Repetitive soft sounds act well as sleep-inducers - at least for me!
I like my grandmother clock ticking and chiming the hours in our library, but don't want any ticking sounds in the bedroom!
We used to have a clock that use to tick all the time but it also used to play a song every hour. I got so used to it but my parents wanted to take the batteries out.
The ticking of a clock, the dangling of keys on a key-chain while driving, someone tapping their pen on the tabletop all make me quite uncomfortable. I find repetitive sounds tend to amplify within my mind and distract me from whatever task is at hand. I would never have a ticking clock in my home, much less in my bedroom. Buy a digital clock and get some sleep!
Thanks for all the answers.
OCD, it's not in my bedroom. I have a travel one I was using, that sometimes just annoys me.
Ciel, I love to hear the clocks chime. My ex mother in law had a few that would go off. After awhile, it's just background noise.
Have a great day everyone.

That buzzing fly in your house....does it just drive you crazy?I hunt it down. Thought I got it. It re-appears again, landing on me. Swat again, it's on the floor, it wakes back up in three seconds and is buzzing again. If you don't see guts, it's not dead! I hate flies!

I'm curious to know what words, spoken or written, drive you crazy. Keep it clean please.One of mine is "whatnot" - That word, if you can call it a word, makes my skin crawl.
