    Many years ago ( about 30 ) I worked in insurance .

    One day this couple came in to insure a fancy looking watch . It was a top of the range diver's watch and seem to recall they valued it at £500 ...

    Anyways I foolishly asked why on earth he'd bought a diver's watch ...

    He calmly said ' I'm a diver '


    Turns out he worked on the off shore oil rigs .

    We had a laugh anyways but I've never forgotten how silly I felt at the time .

    I bet it's worth a few bob now, especially if it was a Rolex Sub!

    I would've responded 'Diver' to a cheeky salesman all day long just to make him squirm.

    I would also follow it up with a long-winded bullsh*t story about working on the oil rigs too. But that's just the kind of guy I am :rotfl:

    Could be a fake looking at that photo. Some of the dial markers seem to be off.

    For my 40th i got a tyre inflator from the GF......

    I tried to contain my excitement. It's not like we've been together for well over a decade. Never once have i muttered, "i really wish i had a tyre inflator"

    Maybe a strong hint as to what she got you for the real present (my fingers are crossed for you).

    Please elaborate. Real tyre inflator, or a cake in the shape of a tyre inflator?

    Such as an 'enhancement' for example?

    I'm glad I wasn't the only person whose mind was working this way.

    As soon as you get past 40, it's usually reserved for Birthdays, Christmas and Holidays.

    Yeah she’s a keeper [emoji1]. Some effort [emoji106]. She was gonna do Breitling as I love the Breitling I tried on a few weeks ago but the logo was too hard and she thought I love Sea Dweller as well and did that one instead [emoji1].

    Told her would’ve been easier if she did my Oris instead [emoji1]

    I've only just cottoned on that this is a cake...

    And there I was thinking how aweful it was that somebody was calling this proudly displayed present a fake.
