    Ok. The crazy question of the day asked among my co-workers was just plain nutso, but we had such a good laugh over it... not for the answer to the question, but the wild reasons for the answers!

    Do you take your wristwatch off, when you go to bed, or do you leave it on?

    Turns out 3 out of 5 of us leave it on.

    Why take it off?
    - just can't STAND that thing on my arm, it's gotta go!
    - why on earth would you leave it on?

    Why leave it on?
    - just gotta see what time it is in the middle of the night (can't see the clock on the nightstand without the glasses)
    - do you realize how much time you waste, over a lifetime, taking your watch off and putting it on again?

    Anyway... those of us who take our watches off, just couldn't believe that anyone would go to bed with it on. And those of us who just leave our watches on, can't believe that it's such a big deal for the others, to take it off.

    Who would'a thought that we'd all be so very opinionated about such a SMALL thing?

    Anybody else have a strong opinion about watches at bedtime? Or have five people in NY just collectively all gone crazy at the same time?

    I have never worn one, but my husband does, and he ONLY wears it to work. I think he has to much time on his hands with nothing to do so he watches the clock. Where he works (a prision) they don't have two clocks that say the same time and none of them are right!

    Do you wear earings to bed?

    It's the only thing I wear to sleep. :D

    I wear it in the shower, too, but take it off for baths.

    I stopped wear a watch. The time is on my cell phone, my ipod and my camera. Three things I carry in my purse. Why do I need a watch.

    Earring to bed? No. When I get home from work the jewerly comes off before the shoes and bra. Oh... maybe that was to much information. :lol:

    I used to leave my watch on all the time, but since I switched to my ultra-cool, weighs next to nothing, Lego watch - LOL - I take it off. I worry a bit that I might break some of the plastic band if I hit it on the night table. I also take off my ring & ankle bracelet (which is glass beads on a stretchy cord), but I leave my earrings, necklace & bracelet - all sterling silver - on all the time.

    My watch comes off when I take a shower or in any type of water. ONLY time it's off. Earrings? Hmm...depends on what kind. Dangly ones come off, studs stay on until I'm tired of them.
    Toe ring comes off for pedicures and when I'm traveling. Those machines at the airport don't like them.

    My watch comes off - so do my rings only because my fingers swell during the night. My earings stay in 365 days of the year until I change them then they stay in till I am sick of them. But I usually wear gold sleepers so they don't give me any problems. Bracelet comes off too. Don't like waking up with it imprinted in my face

    :lol: :lol: Moonpie and Sewsewquilter - you both gave out too much information :lol: :lol:

    I stopped wearing a watch on a regular basis the day I wore it upside down and never noticed! I went to take it OFF when I got home, and noticed it was upside down. That showed me I don't use it. Now if I go out during lunch to run errands, I have to use my cell phone to keep track of time.

    But at work, there's a clock on the pc and the phones, plus a few on the walls. At home, there are clocks and if we go somewhere, there is a clock in the car.

    I have several, mostly used as bracelets now. LOL

    since i last answered, i started taking it off and finally left it off. i have a strip of doughy looking skin where the sun never hits my wrist. :lol:

    and lo! and behold! it's true. i really don't need it.

    however, the earrings have been there in one style or another, every day and night of my life since i was 14, and they're not going anywhere. i got my first pair of gold earrings when i graduated junior high school/middle school. my mother thought i was a gypsy :mrgreen: my daughter got hers the day she was born in the hospital. :-)

    well, as to whether I wear my watch to bed...no, bc I wear a stopwatch 24/7 around my neck. I take it off for pictures, and sometimes when i go out in public, if I am dressed up.
    What's it for? to breathe on time :wink:

    I'm boring--I don't own a watch--or wear jewelry, not even my diamond or wedding band.

    My bra comes off as soon as get home from work--and I rarely wear it during the summer. :D

    Don't wear a watch anymore. Use the time on my cell phone. Everything comes off for bed except my gold chain necklace and my wedding rings!

    I lose my cell phone 2 to 3 times a week. Can't be without my watch! And I check it, numerous times a day (a wee bit OCD about it).

    Was going to make a comment about bras, but don't want to lead this into the gutter. I apologize for thinking poorly.
