Wife: Don't you have enough watches?
Me: Don't you have enough earrings?
Wife: So, you're saying that watches are jewelry for Men?
Me: That's exactly what I'm saying.
Wife: Let's go shopping.
And that's how I got my last watch...
I struggle to see how the man is somehow at fault for getting his watch stolen.
Guys puts on a watch in the morning.
Guy goes swimming.
Guy puts valuables in a locker.
Valuables get stolen.
The wrong doing in that tale isn't that the man wore the wrong watch.
It isn't that the lockers are rubbish.
It isn't that he should wear it swimming because it's a dive watch.
Edit: double posted
if he has insurance his lack of common sense will be spread to all of us. A police report will be filed taking up police time that could be better be used for something more productive.
if you don't have a problem with his behavior. What about someone who has a baby in the back seat sleeping in his new Porsche Panmera Turbo S. He doesn't want to wake the baby when he goes into the convience store so he leaves the car running with the doors unlocked. Does that seem negligent to you?
Lockers are presumably locked.
How on earth does an unlocked, running car compare?
Those signs are a means to remove liability from the gym.
1. A "murse"? .................. seriously?
2. There is a certain level of value above which there is a diminishing return in the level of sympathy. $26,000 way exceeds this value.
3. As someone who worked for some world-renowned security lock manufacturers, you would be appalled at the security level of most lockers and indeed some of the supplementary padlocks, expecially the gimmicky ones. Remember the saying about chains and weakest links? I would hesitate to leave clothes in most of the lockers I've seen, let alone any valuables. Luckily most people don't enter locker rooms equipped to burgle! Those that do are generally successful.

More stupid with an added touch of clutching at straws.
How is it negligence if the perpetrator needed bolt cutters?
Are their thieves in the world? Yes. If they steal, are they guilty? Yes.
If you leave your stuff unsecured and some outside force/element intervenes into your life and your stuff is stolen/damaged and you could have done something to prevent it, do you have some culpability? Of course.
Is the thief a bag of dung? Yes.
This guy could have prevented the theft and he didn't. No matter how much we hate the thief, there will always be a thief just as there will always be rain. I'm sure others safeguarded their watches at the same club and we aren't talking about them because their watches weren't stolen.
Perhaps my understanding of a "locker" differs from yours if your are comparing it to being outside in the rain.
