Which one do you think it was? Well, far and away the most popular missed clock was – the one on your car dashboard, cited by nearly half (42.9%).
Nearly one-in-five (19.5%) said it was their VCR/DVD (though one reader noted, “Someone still has a VCR and knows how to set the time?”).
Other “shout outs” went to:
- iPod/mp3 player (6.,0%) (one reader noted, “iPod has a clock?” Editor’s Note: Yes, it does)
- The microwave (4.8%)
- Desk clock at work (3.6%)
- Alarm clock (2.4%) – Editor’s Note: I smell trouble with that one, come Monday.
The remainder went for “other”, including these options:
Grandfather clock at home
Old fashioned clock in the family room
Clock on the mantle
My TVs which all have clocks built in to them
Clock above the kitchen door...we just leave it alone all year.. so it's either on time, or off by an hour
The gazillion watches that I still wear, even though it's no longer fashionable to wear them, I guess.
A reader with a special sense of humor noted, “Sun dial.”
But this week’s Bonus Survey Says Editor’s Choice goes to the reader who said the clock they forgot to reset was “The one inside my head.”
Thanks to everyone who participated in our survey!
