Am I the only one who gets really disturbed and extremely annoyed when working, studying or even sleeping with a close ticking clock? Can anyone else hear the watch ticking while sleeping even with a hand under a thick pillow?

As I was doing a computerized multiple choice exam yesterday, a guy who was sitting right next to me decided to focus more on the exam by playing the tictac sounds but with the pen. He started slowly and then got more engaged with his sudden musical mood and this is when he went wild and combined between the slow and fast tic tacing.

It's one of my weak points. I lose all focus. I lose all concentration.. and my mind get numb when there's any kind of TiC^$@!#$%$^TaC.
I really envy those who just wouldn't care.

    oh god, i was telling a friend the other day how crazy the clock on my wall drives me when i try to sleep, although i sleep with the music on most of the time, but whenever i decide to turn the music off, i can hear the clock VERY CLEARLY!!! and yes, it drives me super crazy.. and do u remember those "swatch" watches??? i hate them!!! they are so loud, you could hear it even when someone else is wearing it... i guess we are a Gemini :)

    I find the tic tack sound annoying to the max ! I cannot sleep if there is any sound what so ever, so all watches have to be on the far end of the room.

    First.. The Ticking clock Hating part goes way back to my childhood :) believe it or not..
    I was 8 i guess.. When the ticking clock on the wall got louder and louder one night. Until it turned to this big scary women.. That wants to eat me!!!
    Yeah.. I had such a rich imagination.. And yeah.. It’s still scary to me:D more than annoying :)

    Second.. I wont hesitate to give anyone who does the pen thing a scary look..and ask him to stop if he didn’t after the look..
    or the ticking on anything thing… or the key chain thing.. :D all those annoying THINGS :D simply gets on my nerves…. I wont try to be polite about it..

    Life .. haha, I know what You mean! I also had a similar story but luckily it didn't end with a scary woman. It happened exactly the way you described it though, one night the clock on my wall started to get louder and louder, and it's then when I really felt that I can't handle any ticking sounds anymore!

    and what also annoys me terribly, is when some people keep moving one leg while sitting in a fast rhythm.So disturbing! REALLY!

    Dima guess what

    ME TOOOOOO (feels good to know you’re not the only

    The funny part is, sometimes at some nights I just sleep like a baby and I don’t hear anything, and some other night when I’m insomniac my poor little clock starts getting on my nerves and I feel like jumping out of bed and smashing it! (when I’m too tired to get up it gets really torturing!)

    so good news sweets: you’re not the only one

    P.S that guy in the exam was really annoying..mnee7 ma darabti :D

    It's like at some nights the concentration level would be just too high. And for me to concentrate I need an extremely QUIT environment.

    He was testing my patience I guess ;)
