"Looks like it’s fuck this shit o’clock” is what a frustrated worker says in a popular ecard. “Fuck this shit o’clock” (or “I don’t give a shit o’clock") is a time when someone just doesn’t care anymore regarding a current task or situation. The end of a work day (5 p.m., for example) might be “fuck this shit o’clock.”
“Shit o’clock” is a late evening or early morning hour. “Monday at shit o’clock in the evening” was cited in 2001.
“What time is it ? I don’t give a shit o’clock” was cited on Twitter on December 22, 2008. “It’s ‘Fuck This Shit’ o’clock and I was supposed to get off at ‘I Like My Job’ thirty!” was cited on Twitter on June 5, 2009. “Looks like it’s fuck this shit o’clock”—the ecard—went viral on Twitter on April 25, 2012.

If this develops into a longer thread I shall miss most of it: Monday morning at seven I’ll leave home for a week, probably be home next Monday at shit o’clock in the evening.

Thankfully, by the time the band came to the stage, not only were almost all of us resigned to getting home at Shit O’Clock (if we were to get at home at all), but the new band were undoubtedly that rarest of beasts : firing on all cylinders, utterly bastard groovy, and most definitely deserving of their legendary status.

As a Ren faire participant, I’ve heard “gate o’clock” (when the patrons leave) and “naked-thirty” (when you can remove your garb.) In real life, I am a night owl rather than an early bird, so I refer to those times I have to get up early as “oh shit o’clock” and those times I’m up too late as “It’s ten past stupid.”
It’s shit o’clock in the AM and I’m working… (and Facebook status change isn’t working at all)

Fuck This Shit O’Clock
That time of day when whatever you’re doing becomes so irritating that you simply have to cease immediately and exit the area. No matter what the clock states as the actual time, it is still Fuck This Shit O’Clock. Morning, noon and night, any second of any hour can become Fuck This Shit O’Clock. So named because when the moment is reached, people tend to either do a wild, exasperated hand flinging gesture or smash their hands down onto a surface and say “Fuck this shit!!” And then leave.

Of course there’s the problem of Barry, who doesn’t love me like a brother at all, and who has never liked me one bit, but that will be a minor issue: my new motto in regard to Barry being “the time is now fuck-this-shit o’clock.”
