Isn't It about... Time?

If someone asks you what time it is, and you look at your watch/cell phone/sundial, do you give an exact minute? If it's 7:23, do you say it's 7:23, or do you say, "It's about 7:20"? I find I tend to round everything to 5 minutes. I don't really know what that says about me. What do you do?

I give the exact time. 2 minutes can mean everything.

If I look at a digital clock I give exact time. If I'm looking at an analog clock I round up to the next five minutes.

And a side note. My husband hates that when he asks me the time I'll tell him it's ten minutes after five thirty, or quarter after five thirty. He'll say 'why didn't you just say five forty or five forty five ect.?'. I don't know why I do it, I just do.
