Either that, or they'd crane their necks around my desk, and peek at the time on my computer. C'mon, really?! Apparently those are the preferred methods of time-telling these days, so even watches are now passe. Must admit, I too have stopped wearing a watch - but mostly because I'd have to remove it at work (can't type with one), and had a really nice watch stolen off my desk.
