i have digital clocks all over m house, but can still read an analog because i'm old. i can also write in script and add numbers without a calculator.

yes i can use a clock. i don't wear a watch tho, i use my cellphone for that. even if i have to check it 3 times before i remember that's why i took it out in the first place.

33 years old and cannot read them. Was legit excited when smart watches took off, i can have a watch that isnt lame digital that gets mocked, and i know what time it is. Blame dyslexic parents who couldnt read them and couldnt teach me.

I’ve got math dyslexia so when I was a kid, everyone thought I was dumb as FUCK because I couldn’t tell time easily. Digital clocks were the best thing that ever happened to me tbh!
