Comedy relief: Wristwatch

Two very well-off ladies went to the 168 mall in Divisoria on a lark.  As with so many other ladies of their kind, they could not resist the imitations of prestigious Swiss and French watches from China.  So they bought what they liked, thinking of which watch would match which outfit they had.  And so on and so forth…

A few days later, the two ladies attended an exclusive bankers’ event which featured genuine prestigious timepieces from Swiss and French watchmakers.  One lady wore her “faux Rolex” and the other wore her “faux Omega.”

The lady with the “faux Rolex” went through the “Rolex” display to compare her “168 mall purchase” with the genuine ones…  As she was busy studying the details and drooling at the various, genuine “Rolexes,”  her “faux Rolex” loosened from its faux leather strap and fell to the floor.  Harharhar!!!  Nobody noticed the “escapee” watch.  Embarrassed to pick it up, she kicked it all the way to the buffet table, where she could hide it under the voluminous skirting for the meantime.  Then, composing herself, she returned to the various stalls of the prestige watches… and continued drooling over the fabulous displays.

She sidled up to her friend who was wearing the “faux Omega” and related the hilarious incident and both laughed their hearts out.

As the evening drew to a close and as most of the crowd had left, she returned to the buffet table, lifted the pleated skirting, and surreptitiously retrieved her “escapee” watch.  The plastic cover had loosened but the watch was still working…

“Hey, it’s still working!  Do you think I can still get it repaired?”

“What???!!!  You’ll spend more for the repair than what you bought it for!  Just throw it away!!!”

“Ay, I don’t want to waste the Php 400.00 I paid for it!”

“Well, the Php 400.00 was certainly worth the embarrassment, wasn’t it???!!!”  retorted her friend.

Harharhar!!!   😛   😛   😛

    They’ve been had. Those fake watches retail at around P180 to P200 if they haggle.

    Why the hell would someone buy a fake watch? You know deep inside that you are just fooling yourself. I would rather buy something nice and original that i can afford and spare myself of the embarrassment. They can buy a second hand watch if they really want one with a not-so-lucrative amount.

    Besides it’s the LOOK not the LABEL anymore, although a good working watch is an essential accessory ALWAYS.
