    I'll take you up on that.

You must be an absolute riot at parties when talking about blacks, Jews, Asians, Latinos, etc.
    I never said he must be from a certain country. I only said if I asked him where he's from it might be construed as prejudiced. Here, look at it again and use reading comprehension WITHOUT putting words in my mouth (or should I say on my keyboard?):

There are a few people who are known for doing crap just like you did and let's just say that NONE OF THEM are a salesperson's or owner's favorite up.
    You're adding what you believe is my intention. Can we see your mind reading diploma?

And a free little lesson in logic when it comes to profiling & stereotypes: the fact that A implies B doesnt mean B implies A.
    Again, you're taking the equation further based on conjecture. Yes, all squares are rectangles but not all rectangles are squares....... but I never called the person either. I just said if I did ask him whether he's A or B that people would automatically assume I was acting prejudiced towards him - and here you are proving me correct so thanks for that! I went on to say that certain types of people who are stereotyped as annoying ups for salespeople are not looked well upon by retail employees. Again, I did NOT directly, nor even indirectly, speculate like you - I merely said that there are stereotypes for certain kinds of people that salespeople dislike for their behavior.

    If I were to push my presumptions about you as far as you did about me, I'd be calling you a bleeding heart overly sensitive liberal who looks to be offended by everything....... but I won't stoop to your level. And if I were going to lower myself into the mud to wrestle with a pig, I'd tell you to read these:

    Stop Being Offended Today: 3 Cures for Everything That Irritates You

    ..... but I won't because I'm not going to make suppositions about you.

    Now let's see if you are truly done, or you're going to break your word and fire back.

    My wife went to pick up a Watch I purchased, and when she paid she said 'It feels as if a thousand voices from my bank account cried out and then were silence.... I THINK MY PURSE IS CRYING' Just imagine your wife saying that...

    Why dont you just buy a few slaves on the black market and keep em locked up and pay them nothing, that way you would have an extra 1500 a month to wipe your butt with, you dont sound very efficient to me.

    OH boy, im not quite willing to read 13 pages of forum posts, but what the heck has happend? I think the longines piece is pretty much the best longines watch in their entire collection. However, your actual choice is just as nice (and there are only a few pieces that could get that much credit). The case is nice in terms of its dimensions, the dial is stunning, and, as a nomos owner myself, the brand deserves a ton of credit.
    Why not post a little bit more (pictures, review, impressions...)

    I think we've had enough racial commentary for one thread.

    OP, you've made a fine choice. Feel free to show it off in a new thread.
