That time I spend waiting to fall back asleep after peeing during the night.

My spinning class - ever since they put a clock on the wall at the front of the room.

The commute home, especially when clueless idiots are blocking traffic with their haphazard driving. Or the lunch hour if I'm working with a particular coworker... who likes to take a double lunch break and eats slower than a sloth.

Takes you an hour? Takes me like 5 minutes

Mondays fly by so fast. It's the fastest day of the week. Longest hour of the week is Tuesday from 7-8, 8-9, 9-10, 10-11, 1-2, and 2-3. Tuesdays drag on forever. I skipped 11-1 because I eat lunch somewhere in that time frame (while working) and usually a handful of the floor guys come up to the control room where I work and hang out eating lunch. Goes pretty quick.

I agree, especially when something stressful is going on in my life. I go to bed at 10:00 and wake up at 2:00 with my mind racing. I can generally forget going back to sleep, so most of the time I lie there until it's time to get up at 4:45.
