    Wink How to buy a G-Shock

    How to buy a G-Shock, without getting in trouble with the wife.

    I got to thinking about my G-Shock collection yesterday, and asked myself, “Which G-Shock would you miss the most, if you lost it?” The answer was my G2300B-1V. That watch has been through a lot, and has a lot of fond memories associated with it. It’s also one of the most functional G-Shocks ever made, in my opinion. Then I got to thinking about other favorite items I’ve had in the past, and how they were inevitably discontinued when it came time to replacing them. It was then that I decided that I needed a backup G2300.

    It just so happened that I was at Wal-Mart last night, shopping for baby clothes. While the wife was picking out baby stuff, I hit the jewelry counter, looking for a spare G2300B-1V. They didn’t have one, but I did notice a very excellent G2300-9V, with gold main LCD and tan and white lettering. I’d seen this model before, but never really thought about buying it. Then I got to thinking about how much I’ve admired that picture of a gold LCD Raysman that Ozzie has been bombarding the G-Shock forum with. I LOVE the look of that Raysman!!! A gold LCD G2300 would be kind of a junior version of that Raysman I love so much.

    I was about to pull the trigger on the G2300-9V, when I remembered that I’d bought something like 4 G-Shocks in the last month. Another one might send the wife over the edge. So I bowed my head down in defeat, and headed off to meet the wife. Once we got to the checkout area, all of the registers had million mile lines of people waiting ahead of us. My baseball game started in a half hour, and I was looking at at least a half hour just to get out of the store.

    That’s when I conjured up a purely devious plan. One so sinister, that no human could resist it. I let my wife wait in line for a few minutes, to the point that she was getting very frustrated with the wait. The bay started to cry. That’s when I started the wheels in motion.

    “Honey, we’re never going to get out of here.”

    “God, I hate this place!”, my wife says.

    “I have an idea. There’s a lady with a register at the jewelry counter. I can see her, and she looks bored.”

    “But we’re not buying any jewelry”

    “There’s a G-Shock I’ve been eying for a few months now. Maybe there’s one at the jewelry counter.”

    “It’s worth a shot.”, she says. “We’ll never get through this line.”

    So we head over to the jewelry counter. I look into the glass case for a moment, and say, “There it is. They still have one in stock.”

    My wife replies, “Thank God! I can’t stand this place.”


    So I grab the lady’s attention, and buy the G-Shock, along with a couple of baby things. We’re out of the store in no more than 2 minutes after leaving the main checkout area. The wife was very happy, I got to see my baseball game, and I now have a new favorite G-Shock. I love it when a plan comes together.

    Dude, you are so lucky your wife did not make you return it the next day. :-D

    Well, that's what my wife would do ; she knows every trick in the book.

    Congratulations, on the watch; looks like a real keeper.

    And please don't stick any more G-Shocks in my head!!!! You're killing me, and I have a feeling that my last plan only works once.

    Cunning plan, Buzzbait :-D

    I store my new watch purchases in the office, wait a couple of days before bringing just the watch home without the boxes, quickly keeping it in my watch collection case and a few days later take it out to wear when she's looking. By that time, she would casually ask when I bought a new watch and I'd tell her it was bought sometime back but she just didn't notice it

    This routine has been working well so far... :gold

    Good story. How did you get the battery full so quickly - was it on display in a very bright area?
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
