Watch forum cliches

Postby Pubbie » October 4th 2017, 10:30am

From time to time I happen upon some watch "patois" that makes me hoot, like

"Got the call" - used as a euphemism in some parts for "I've got the squits, and I need the shitter RIGHT NOW"

"my AD" - your alimentary dysfunction is your business, sunshine, not mine

"Wrist shot" - something usually seen in 1970s porn films

"Beater" - self-explanatory

As in

"I got the call from my AD, so here's a wrist shot of my beater" - that's absolutely fucking disgusting, you coprophilic sex freak, and you should be ashamed of yourself

Anyone seen anything less self-aware?

"Just needs a new battery" ---- as in the wartch I'm trying to sell for $400 and I'm too cheap to put in a .80 cent battery so it works. (Cause I know the wartch don't work).

Even tho its a 65mm it shows (presents) smaller ---- yeah like a 63mm.

Makes no sense.
A seller accepting checks from someone (whether in "good standing" or not) simply makes sure said check clears before shipping said product. A cleared check from a noble member or a piece of shit commoner .................... is still a cleared check.

That said, I think I'll eat chicken for lunch today.
