My husband has been wanting a minute timer to use in the bathroom. He rinses his mouth with some anti-plaque stuff and he is supposed to rinse for a minute. It isn't easy to find a minute timer. He didn't want a little plastic hour glass type timer. He wanted wood and brass. So the hunt was on. We finally settled on one we found online. I ordered two, one for his bathroom in each house, in time for them to be here for Father's Day. The package arrived last week. They were worth waiting for. Very attractive. Wood and brass and just the right size for the shelves he wanted to put them on. They were well packed in individual boxes labeled "minute timer". It's nice to get your husband something he really wants.

This morning my husband says, "It sure seems like that minutes goes by fast." So we timed them with the atomic stop watch I bought him for his birthday. One of them is forty-two seconds the other is forty-seven seconds. So whats the deal? He isn't happy and I feel ripped off. I imagine the manufacturer saying, "Now if we skimp a little on the sand in each timer, every fourth timer will be filled with free sand. Just imagine the impact on beaches everywhere. Not only is this good business, it is good for the environment."

Okay, consumers, don't take anything for granted, time your timers. Make every minute count. Don't short change your dental hygiene. Every minute's rinse should take sixty seconds. There's not a second to waste.
