Swift timeouts, i.e., clicking the skull, is something I always do immediately. Those skulls don't stay on my screen for more than a minute or two, and I'm always aware of when one is due to appear.
I don't give advance notice like some do on their profile page, because the clock is part of the game, it's in the rules of chess, and I assume my opponent knows the rules of this great game. If your clock expires in OTB play or on RHP, then 'click,' you lose. I consider it a legitimate and honourable win, which it definitely is, according to the laws of chess.
