Why won’t they fix it? | Questions and Observations

I honestly don’t know what they want from me. Since they sent my $60 back, it clearly isn’t money. Perhaps I missed some fine print about sacrificing a small animal, or selling my soul to Satan.

I’m at a loss.

Citizen watches are junk, always have been, always will be. Anybody who would pay $850 dollars for one apparently doesn’t know this.

Nemo sneers at my Rolex, but it has been on my wrist every day for almost forty years, and nothing has fallen off it, nor has it ever needed any repairs beyond an occasional crystal replacement, because I am hard on watches, and a cleaning and tuneup every ten years or so.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Me, I’m just a cheap old bastard. For about 15 yrs. I wore an inexpensive (~$15) Timex, which was accurate to a few (~5) secs./month, the battery lasted for its approximate shelf life, but eventually the plastic face was badly scratched and the function button labels wore off. So I upgraded to a Casio (~$40) with a glass face and built-in electronic compass, night light which illuminates the digits rather than the background and the digits are larger (easier on my ole eyes), and again accurate to within a few seconds a month.
