Is it considered low class not to own a clock for your house?

I was talking to a friend and she said I was ghetto because I don't have a clock. I do have the time on my: cable box, DVD player, stove, microwave, thermostat, phone and cell phone. I use the alarm on my cell phone. I disagree with her. Do you?

  • Class has nothing to do with buying a wall clock or alarm clock lol That is absurd. If you have something that tells you the time then you're fine. Nothing low class about not having something you don't need. Your friend is wrong.

  • Yeah, that's silly. Having a clock or not is personal preference only.

  • That's just silly. What's the point of having an annoying ticking dust collector when you have a clock on the cable box, VCR, microwave, phone, etc. How many things do you need to tell you the time?
    We used to have a clock on our dining room wall. It was pale yellow plastic and a piece of junk...completely tacky, lol. It fell and broke a couple months ago. I still look over there for the time out of habit (because our DVD player and cable box don't actually show the time so there's nothing in the living room for the time except hitting the info button on the TV).

  • My Mom was really poor growing up and they didnt own a clock. Well when she would go to a welthy persons home they had clocks. So she grew up thinking clocks were for the rich. Now as for me growing up my mom had so many clocks I didnt really pay attention to if anyone else had one or not. Heck I didnt even pay attention to all the clocks she had

  • It would be a different situation if you were late everywhere you go and had no way to check time..yeah..then a clock of SOME kind is needed. Sounds like you're fine to me.
