too many too, many undoing

      Maybe the clock doesn’t manufacture the right kind of hours and minutes.
      Maybe there are too many minutes of puttering, too many minutes of gossip, too many minutes of slowed-up production, too many minutes of inefficient work because of inadequate planning, too many minutes of undoing mistakes...
      If your clock turns out inferior minutes, have it fixed.
