Driving home at night, you notice that all the lights in your house/apartment are on. As you park the car, they all turn off at the same time. The house is empty and the doors are locked from the inside.
You check your watch. The big hand is on the 4, the little hand is on the 1. You’ll be late for work.
At work, you find an email in your inbox. The sender is yourself. Puzzled, you open the e-mail you apparently sent to yourself. Inside is the message “the out for watch watch.”
You look at your watch. The little hand is on the 4, the big hand is on the 1. You look back at the screen. The fourth and first words have swapped places. “watch out for the watch.” You look at your watch again.
Your watch is digital.

I know someone who has a digital and an analogue watch.
Joke’s on the watch I don’t wear one
OCD. I’m ripping my hair out.
Could someone pleeease explain???
Wtf are u trying to do?
The estimated reading time says 33 seconds but I’ve been reading this for about a year now and I still don’t know what’s going on.
So the watch turned on the lights?
I lost my mind. So scary!
SO YOU GET RKO’ED OUTTA NOWHERE BY YOUR WATCH?
What o_O I understand the watch and e-mail’s changing, but… Why? This doesn’t seem like an average Creepypasta. Still pretty good though. 6/10.
….Watch? I mean, what?
This was… confusing. So if it was digital, were you hallucinating? This is just… confusing.
Like, seriously. It’s a good confusing, though, so I’m going with a 6/10.
or a Terry Pratchet joke…
-_- ……0_0 ……-_-
I still don’t get it, “sigh” perhaps it really was PHONE.
WHO WAS PARK?
ohhh i get it
You might want an electrical crew to look at your house and get a new watch that one can’t make up it’s mind
I need to get 90% more high to understand this pasta
I find it ironic that I found a watch advertisement right under this pasta..
The watch is evil!!! The one with the hands that is.
Look at your watch.
Now look at your e-mail.
Now back to your watch.
Now back to your e-mail.
Now back to your watch.
Your watch is digital.
sorry ladies, your watch cant be analogue like mine but if you use creepypasta, it can at least seem like mine
Have you eaten any brownies lately, by any chance?
I’ll have what drugs he’s having.
New favorite pasta. I just fell over laughing.
What the heck just happened O_o
no no no you look at your watch and you dont have a watch and you look at cp again andtheres a trolface
Ridiculous. If nonsense scared me i’d be watching tv right now.
BUT WHO WAS YOURSELF?
Look at the message
back at your watch
Now look at the message
Look at your watch
Your watch is now digital.
I see what you did there.
And then you remember…
You don’t have a watch.
Reminds me of the Old Spice commercials. “Look away. Now look back. I’m on a horse!”
Seriously. WTF are you smoking. This is why you should spend a little extra and get good drugs, not rat poison lol
Ooh! Nice. Wasn’t expecting that. :)
Your comment was glorious.
…. ive been looking for my damn watch!
Look at your watch. Now look at mine, Now back to your watch. Now back to mine. Sadly, your watch isn’t like mine, but if your watch wasn’t analog it could be like mine. Look down. Now look back up. Where are you? You’re at work, with the watch your watch could be like. What’s in your hand? Now back to me. I have it. Its the email you sent to yourself, but it makes no sense. Look again. The email is now readable! Anything can happen when your watch isn’t an analog watch. Your watch is now digital.
I like you.
I’m sorry what?
its very interesting once you understand :)
did you just…understand something?
Who needs drugs, this pasta is enough for your brain o.O
Yeah, hate it when that happens.
This was worth reading just for the comments xD
What. The. Fashizzle.
I’m getting a real time travel feel here the numbers switched maybe he sent himself an email a little from the past or something just to rationalize.
Look at me. Now look at your watch. Now back at me. Then back at your watch.
Your watch is now diamonds!
Yeah…not so creepy to me. So,the watch was digital all along,so it\\\’s not supposed to have hands–easy to understand. What\\\’s so creepy abuot it,though? \\"OH NO! IT\\\’S NOT A ROLEX!\\" *screams*
Look at your watch, now read your email, now back at your watch, you’ll find that the little hand is on the 1, now look back up, now look down at your watch again, Your watch is now digital.
this one always freaked me out.
@roy g. biv
Somebody late for their shift, that\’s who.
and then it switches again and HOLY SHIT ITS NOT A WATCH AT ALL 0_0
this should be scary? wait, what?!
I…what? But why…I uh…huh?
Oooooohhhhhh…shit, man. That\’s crazy.
Reminds me of the old spice commercials….”I’m on a horse backwards”
AND THEN A SKELETON POPPED OUT.
Obey the digital.
wtfh? i am so lost
… i still don’t get this shitfuckery
My watch is digital.
THEN WHO WAS WATCH?
I’ve always wanted to do that.
OH SHI- the lights all went out for no reason and OH GOD my watch is DIGITAL!! MY WORLD IS FALLING APART!!
Better take another hit crack and hope for the best…
well…….i’m gonna go get some more drugs for this…..
Wow. Learn to Analog clock…BIG HAND is hour LITTLE HAND is minutes. 4:05. That’s when he’d be late…the second time the watch is just messed up.
I don’t even.
Creepypasta does mindfuck.
apparently were all constipated cause we havent shat BRIX yet.
The watch was digital.
I’m laughing so hard.
Third comment made me laugh.
also this one would be fucking fantastic in the “madness” section
DIS IS YO BRAIN ON DRUGSSS
I have a watch with a digital display as well as hands, so this wouldn’t work.
But it sounds like a dream more than a scary story.
(Also, inscribed on the watch were the words: “A watch from, your old friends in the Watch.” This is what is called a Pun or Play on Words.)
Talk about insanity. You think you’re gonna be late for work at 1.20am, just after you presumably got home from work. You read your e-mail, and suddenly it’s 4.05am, almost 3 hours later (blackout or what?), then the e-mail somehow rearranges itself, then you think ‘duh, I have a digital watch’.
Bet ya wish you’d stayed off the dope, huh.
On a more serious note, how is this creepy?
It turns out your wearing 2 watches. lol this story made me laugh and the comments made me laugh harder. You were in your house last night you saw you out the window so you turned off your lights so you got distracted so you could jump out the window before you saw you. make sense?
That almost DOES make sense, all things considered.
sNaZzY cHeEsE actually has a couple good points (despite me barely being able to read that)
But I do think this is more of a parody than a real creepypasta. I mean, read the title.
i agree with number 12
I GET IT NOW.
who was slacking off on job reading email!?
Nope, my watch is analog.
I fucking lol’d. Possibly the best funnywtfpasta here.
Well, it’s possible that the lights are on a timer or something, which would explain how they all turned off at the same time…
I don’t get it either.
You’re driving home, okay.
Thean that scary light thing happens and whoops you have to go to work again.
Also, next time you look at that watch, it will have turned into a GRANDFATHER CLOCK *dun dun duuuun*
i dnt get it!!!!!
i mean wt is spooky about it
hu sent the email
y did lites go off
y did guy go 2 work at 1-20?????
y did guy go on email during work???
he shud b fired.
I nearly pissed myself laughing at this one. I mean Wtf, dude. lol
We seem to be running out of inanimate objects to turn into creepypasta items.
Solution: Uh. Take your watch off?
WHO WAS YOU ?
sorry i had too
but my watch is both digital and has hands
BUT WHO WAS GUY WALKINGDOWNA STREET IN MIDDLE EASTERN ASIA WHILE CHEWING ON A MOUTHFUL OF BALONEY SAMMICH????????????
WICH RAISES A FURTHER QUESTION
WHO WAS SAMMICH?
Dùuu̴u͝dè, y̷oư ma̕d̷e̕ ̨me l͜ol͞ har͡d a̧t ̀m̕idni͡g̷h́t,̡ ͜ḿy̡ ̵famil͞y ̵àr҉ȩ g̸oin̴g͏ ҉t͟o b̨e ͝an̢no̵y͟ed̕.̡.̛.̕
who goes to work at 1:20 am?
People that work at night.
Conclusion: Your head a splode.
But who was email?!
Much better than “who was watch”
This one always gives me the creeps.
Its one out of a sort of mini series of ‘You do this, and you notice that weird thing over there’ series. I have no idea how many there are though.
OH GOD EPILEPTIC SEIZURE!!!!111
mah watch be possesed!
who was tim?
it’s killing me that I dont get it!!!!
obvious parody pasta is not so obvious to some…
Thats what I do. I be all digital all up in yo face. Its how I do. You best watch out or I might be gettin all digital up in YO FACE.
i got an boner for reading this one
this one makes me lol
I like it.
I needs moar drugs
Okay…..um…i really dont understand this one. ha i guess im no the only one huh??
but its DIGITAL!!! DIGITAL!!!
*has panic attack and keels over*
Uh huh. My reaction exactaly
wtf? I didn’t get this story at all, too frickin’ disconnected…
The comment posted by Bob made me think of tiny skeletal watch hands punching you in the face a la “Army of Darkness.”
This is less of a “OMG! My watch is out to get me!” situation, and more of a “WTF!? Am I high!?” situation.
your watch is digital…
it doesnt HAVE hands.
when the little hand and the big hand move from 1 to 4 and 4 to 1
the emails words switch too.
Sure its really weird but uh
still very interesting.
Your explanation makes less sense than the story.
so your watch makes you not know what time it is, or what the fuck? why do all your lights go out? what is going on
So… The watches hands are going to put you in a strangle hold?
THEN WHO WAS WATCH?
I don’t get it lol.
i love this one
you fail. badly. i suggest an hero.
Turns out your power just went off and you’re a little bit retarded.
This one is awesome
… Wait… What?
