Nine Something

My car came with zero accessories. Not even a clock. I had to go to Radio Shack to purchase a small digital clock so that I would know what time it is when I’m driving around.
I’ve had the car about three years and now the clock batteries are finally wearing down. I can tell because the display is is fading. It’s not as contrasty as it used to be.
But it is also exhibiting a very weird condition. The hour hand is stuck at 9 o’clock. Never mind that this is a digital clock. At 9:59, it rolls over to 9:00. Other than this little problem, it keeps perfect time.
