My ancient wind up egg timer, only DINGS! once and I never hear it OR I hear it and don't jump up causing me to miss my pills.
I came home with the cute round one (5.97) he said just put in 4 hours, I said it only takes an hour, he said why didn't you get one that you can set for four hours, when you take your pill just push the preset 4 hours.
why did you get a one hour? my answer was this one was 6 and the other 10. He said you will have the same problem with the one hour that you had with the one hour egg timer that was only one hour.
(did I mention I had destroyed the package and receipt?)
I drive the 2.9 miles to WM and buy the 10.00 one and lo and behold, yet another Gadget that is Smarter than a 68 year old........
The round one is simple, just tap the minutes you want by tapping the button that says minutes.
Guess how you set 4 hours on the big kahuna timer? it types and fills in from the left side, this older than a 5th grader typed 35960. Gotcha! stupid timer!
I set it and in 4 hours it went to dinging with a loud noise worse than fingernails on a blackboard. If you are younger than 40 you probably don't know what a blackboard is.
Have you figured it out yet? can you guess the things I was thinking while trying to figure out what to type?
3 hr 59 min 60 seconds equals 4 hours.... STOP LAUGHING! it SAID to type in hours, minutes, seconds and I DID.
While typing this post it dawned on me I could have typed 40000, so I ran to the kitchen and did that and it works..I SAID STOP LAUGHING!
any way it is set and has total recall, so I swallow the pill, reach up to the fridge magnet, touch recall and start and at the end of 4 hours all you know what breaks lose and will DING for 1 minute 79 seconds.... say what? why the extra 79 seconds?
Now if only I remember to punch the recall button when I swallow the pill, I am set, with not one but two new timers.
I got a FREE Kindle, and it came Via Kayak..... to be continued and you don't EVEN want to know the fun I had with the instructions on the Kindle.
