I love it too! I knew about time/day clocks, but never realized that such a thing as this existed!

Definitely gonna get a few of those as gag gifts. Too late for Xmas...how about a New Year's gift?

Haha, great clock! And no alarm!

(Mr. Bigbuglf keeps saying once I finally retire, he is going to smash the alarm clocks with a hammer! )

I have a digital clock that displays the time, AM/PM, day of the week, month and date of month.

Now I just need it to tell me what year this is.

I suppose it's similar to having different tastes in music, literature, humor, and movies. We have different preferences in the amount of structure/planned activity in our lives. I wouldn't like having so little specific to do that I didn't really know what day it is, yet others, such as most respondents in this thread so far, hold that up as a desirable outcome in retirement. Different strokes.

Not retired but with my schedule I could use a clock like that. Thursday is my Monday, Monday is my Friday and Tuesday and Wednesday are my Saturday and Sunday. Is it any wonder I don't always know what day it is?? lol I rest my case...

That's me. I literally go through a mental day flip when I first wake up. Fortunately, I generally guess right.
