time.strftime('%m-%d-%Y %H:%m:%S') to log is out of order

I am using a recursive function to print the time and a few other
things on each pass. ( the function calculates size of file that is
being transferred and if not 100 % copied, it waits 20 secs and checks
again).

i would expect the time to be correct anytime it is used:

<--code below -->>
print time.strftime('%m-%d-%Y %H:%m:%S')
<--code above -->>

here is an example of what i am seeing:

16:07:16
16:07:36
16:07:56
16:07:16
16:07:36
16:07:56
16:07:16
16:07:36
16:07:56
