Do you trust other people's watches?

When somebody asks what time it is... Do you take their word for it?

I tell them it's time to buy a watch and bid them a good day.

I say I say I say the commentary matches the avatar, that's for sure.

I鈥檇 trust them.

Now that I think about it though. Any situation in which a total stranger has approached me to ask for the time, I鈥檝e said 鈥淚 don鈥檛 know man sorry.鈥

Maybe it鈥檚 a living in capital cities thing, but don鈥檛 you have a phone mate? If you don鈥檛, surely you want a charger not the time of day?

It sounds like a polite way of asking whether you have a decent phone or watch to mug you for 馃槄

When I ask for the time, I follow up with "have you standardized your seconds? What's your beat error? If it's above 1.0 don't bother telling me the time."

You can make a lot of friends this way

I don't trust other people in general.

I would trust them. The chances are high they're wearing a smart watch with wifi-assisted accurate time 馃槅

I say "it's time to get a watch" 馃槀

I grew up in a city with a lot of violence, then moved to one with slightly less violence I guess 馃槀
