Icon20 Would you have saved your Rolex?

As you all know I’m in a bit of ‘tax’ trouble in upstate New York and needed to let some of my help go; my yacht captains and crews, masseuse, self esteem guru, landscaper (no comment), housekeeper/butler, and my organic farmer and distiller.

As a result, I took our kitchen green bin to the larger mother ship green bin and dropped the smaller one into the larger one. As any respectable Rolex owner would do, I left it in there so as to not risk my Rolex getting green bin mutagen on it , which would require a trip to RSC. Had it somehow fell into the bin, I’d have left it in the bin and bid it adieu.

Question is, what would you have done if it fell off or touched the mutagen?

Garbage can or dumpster? No problem. I’d be in and out faster than a raccoon or bear. Now if it fell off my wrist in to an active sewer manhole or the like I would call one of the guys and offer them whatever they requested as payment to retrieve it.

Please note that letting the Rolex stay in the bin allows for an excuse to buy another Rolex. So in essence, a win.

I’m not allowed to hire any help at the moment so professional sewer divers isn’t an option.

And I’m a germaphobe.

I assure you Suzanne this is real life and I can’t be the only one who has a near miss responsibly recycling organic waste.

I’ve got guys that go in them all the time for work related purposes. They’d just get an extra cash bonus for retrieving my Rolex.

After you recover it, run it through the greater mutagen transmutator. Or prepare to loose a lot of crowns

I like the cut of your jib Chewie.

Question, have you gone all PC on us by referencing your yacht captain and crew? Did you steer away from referencing the yachtmater previously in your employ because of the negative connotations the words yacht and master have to some on this forum?

As to your question, you did the right thing, most of us would do the same, especially TROGs.

Thank you my Kiwi friend. Unfortunately Yachtmaster is now the name of a kinky game my crews would play so we, uh, we don’t go there on account of the settlement and not being in international waters.

(There’s no more fun these days.)

I’ve never recovered from, or of, anything. I’m more boomerang than arrow. If it’s gone it’s gotta make it’s way back to me unassisted.

What’s the point of being a Rolex wearer if you can’t drink on the clock?

I was in a similar position a couple of years ago
I had to let go of my housekeeper
In a moment of brilliance i decided that the easiest way to replace them was to simply have kids
They're easy and fun to make
Thanks to the socialized health care in Australia, delivery was free and they don't eat much
Theyre even a tax write off
Fast forward 3 years and now they're small enough to fit into most household bins as well as closer to the ground, so getting them to pick up anything i drop means i don't have to strain my back bending

I would have sent one of them into the bin to retrieve it

A story from John Madden

In Oakland we had a row of sinks and mirrors, and at the end of the sinks and mirrors is a row of toilets. One day Ted Hendricks was at the end of the sinks and mirrors. He goes to comb his hair and as he reached into his pocket to get his comb out, some change fell into the toilet.

I was at the other end of the thing, and I was watching down there. Ted starts staring into the toilet and I said, 'Man, this is weird.'

The next thing I know he kneels down and he's staring into the toilet. I said, 'What the heck is he doing?' He stood up, reaches into his pocket again, takes out a roll of bills, takes out a $50 bill and goes 'Wop' -- and he throws it in the toilet.

'I said, 'Holy cow, what are you doing?' He looks at me and says, 'You don't think I'm going in there for 35 cents, do you?'
