Let's settle this once and for all.
Do you wear a watch?
(I'm a bit of a cunt)
both things are completely unecessary.
Useful if I want to buy something.
and have pockets in which to carry money.
amazing outside-the-box thinking on my part here, i realise, but stick with me for a minute.
and its easier to look at your wrist than it is to get a phone out of your pocket.
no indie points on offer here.
you could just tape those items to your chest
like a small animal might do with food.
you could lose your wallet containing all your money, ID and cards.
you're unlikely to lose your trousers.
Think of the rest of us
Did not lose my trousers though, so Forza is right!
Watches are more of a comedy prop than a functioning timepiece these days.
Let me look.
<turn wrist, spill beer down front>
Think that puts me in the "bit of a cunt" pile too.
the only reason people wear a watch on their other wrist is so they can point at it using their strongest finger. if you've mastered the art of using your left hand for everyday gestures, it'll almost certainly be fine.
'oh great, a watch! something to have on my wrist the whole time!....and....a gold strap....yes, nice. I've always thought men who wear gold look very classy...yes, that's...lovely, thank you' *closes box*
And I'm not a cunt.
Why on earth would wearing a watch make you a bit of a cunt?!?!
And I'm looking mighty fine.
How about you? You're worried about looking like a cunt, aren't you? I can tell.
but I found I just looked at it all the time and strapping something to my wrist was a bit of a drastic move for the convenience of knowing the time at a second's notice. I just use my phone these days. There will come a time when phones replace everything, so we won't need even a wallet as we will just use contactless. Same with house keys. We probably won't even call them phones any more as that would be a minor function of what they do. We may even strap them to our wrist.
I don't wear any jewellery - don't like the feeling on my skin.
That said, I'd love me one of these:
I've got a watch and I really like it, but I haven't wore it for years - I don't really like the feeling of things being on me that don't need to be. I don't really want to 'get used to it' either.
And I don't wear my wedding ring - I'm not one for wearing any jewellery.
It also gives da hunnyeez a bit of (false) hope in life.
Shoulda seen the signs, shoulda seen the signs......
Most people's watches look really bad so I get the hate
Always thought it looked cool. Now I'm in my 40s it would just make me look like an old twat
I like that. Hmmm...
it has run out of batteries now, which says a lot about how long ago my 21st birthday was. Turns out it is some specially vaccuum sealed thing and it is 30 quid (cheapest price I have found) to get it swapped out. All I want to do is get it running so I can sell it.
only 12 and 6 though.
and kind of get stuck about an inch away from where they should be like a weird wristband. Doesn't matter how loose or tight I have the strap, just does it when my hand is upright.
I might start wearing it.
i probably won't.
because I might be the biggest cunt of all
You can't really read it in direct sunlight, and you need to use your spare hand to press the button to make it light up, and it only stays on for 4 seconds when you do, but whatever. It was only £5 and makes me look like I'm from an early 80s vision of the near future.
and that looks like it is the 80's
They still need to make a living, so just go about suing people instead?
If I was a samurai, I'd want to keep the swordsmanship up so I'd be going around to the company that made them and re-enacting scenes from Kill Bill.
