shouldn't it be four o'clock not for o'clock...

It’s for-thirty, and I might as well get up. The last time I looked at the clock, it was four-fifteen.

See example:

Dollie,

 

You are correct that it should be four-thirty.  However, times are written using numbers, not words.

 

It’s 4:30, and I might as well get up. The last time I looked at the clock, it was 4:15.

 

I hope this helps.
