Why wouldn't one wear a watch at home?

From movies to your mother-in-law, put it here and try not to hurt each other

Why wouldn't one wear a watch at home?

Postby Thunder1 » December 12th 2017, 8:50am

Don't understand the merits of this post..why wouldn't you wear a watch at home?..from tracking the time a brisket is in the smoker, to how long it's taken to mow your lot, to how long a furniture repair project has been glued up in the workshop, to how long the wife has been screaming in your ear, why wouldn't your wear a watch at home..Jesus Christ!!..

Do you take off your watch when you wipe your butt?

Owning a nice watch, and not wearing it as much as you can, is like having Bree Olson as a girlfriend and not getting a blowjob every day.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Excellent analogy, Mr Conjurer. Never understood owning a watch and not wearing it.

People so readily lose their way and get swallowed up in obsessing on the minutia that they think might attach to such things in the eyes of others.

Its just a fukin watch that you paid too much for. It doesn't say good things about you. It doesn't make you a better man. There are no rules about what you do with it. No body cares about your watch.

A sheep and a moron.

I've always thought a nice watch on my wrist made me look thinner... ;)

The same forum has 3 pages about what watch to wear, sitting an exam. Fuck's sake.

Same as "car guys" who buy cars they don't drive.
I always ask why they didn't get a TV if they just wanted something to look at.

Watches are merely one aspect of my collection of clocks. When I'm home I like to let the clocks take the stage. I substitute the Atmos for the Reverso.

My answer: because my son likes to get his dirty baby fingerprints all over them and stretch out the strap.

Oh and occasionally spit up on them.

He learned how to open my watch-tool box last night so that has a lock on it now.

The best line of the whole ridiculous thread.

As if the ads tagged to every pic and between every fucking post weren't repelling enough; even in view of the sales threads, how can anybody stand that fuckin' place anymore?

I'm running adblockers, so don't see all the shit. I couldn't stomach WUS otherwise
