Beware Clock-watchers

September 21, 2011

From an Ad posting about a job:

Clock-watchers need not apply.

Is this a common phrase? Bitter. I can just imagine the residue of the previous person on it — someone constantly glancing at the clock? It implies that the ideal candidate must be able to disregard time for the sake of the (utterly unexciting) job that is being advertised. Would checking the clock get you fired around there?
