    My pet peeve

    It never ceases to amaze me how anyone can spend 2 grand on a suit or designer outfit to "look sharp", then top it all off with a disposable, plastic, digital Timex or Casio that's worth less than the change in their pocket. Deduct even more points if it has a built in calculator or is set to beep obnoxiously every hour.

    My ultimate goal is to go all day without spotting a digital watch of any kind, but I won't hold my breath. But, as sure as I'm sitting here, somebody will beep at the top of the hour just to announce themselves "loud and proud" while dressed to the nines, spending twice as much on lunch as on their timepiece. The worst are those that "alarm" everybody at set intervals, letting them rip on for an entire minute of screeching audial hell straight from the bowels of China.

    "But I have a Dream...."


    Have a great weekend everyone!

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    I guess I can sort-of agree about the hourly chime, but really: at most they beep for 15-20 seconds, and it hppens so rarely, it's a non-issue. As for what watch someone wears with what suit....who cares?

    Now I wish I still had that calculator watch from when I was ten. I could probably find one on ebay for 10-15 bucks, eh?

    I paid $15.95 for the black Casio in my post above...brand new... a couple of years ago. They're still a current model.
