All the time, even after years of tying them. Your turn, GO!

I know I can never get the dimple right, so I give myself at least an extra 15 minutes just for the tie.

Yes, but not by more than about 5 minutes. I can't stand to have my tie too long or too short.

I feel you there. I blame it on my Eye-talian father.

I have to set aside at least 20 minutes to make sure my tie is perfect. More often than not, I end up using the whole 20.

Correct length is crucial to me. Knot - eh, you can always make a fake little dimple after you've tied it.

At least you set it aside. I just let it cut into my morning.

All the better. A perfectly tied tie is a sad affair.

Be thankful you have enough hair to spend time on.

The poll is kinda bad. I mean, we have never and all the time, but we don't have sometimes, instead we get pancakes.
So, yes, sometimes, but not all the time, just every now and then.
