Watch what you say
I have a Timex Indiglo Expedition.
It is lightweight, water resisitant to 100m, has a stopwatch, and is cheap: in other words a great triathlon watch.
I was in a meeting last week where lots of Very Important People were discussing lots of Very Important Things. Just as we were adjourning, someone from across the table calls out "hey Mister P, is that a man's watch?" At which point all eyes were staring at my wrist. "I mean, it's just so small."
Why yes, it is a man's watch, thank-you-very-much. What made the comment sting particularly bad is the fact that one of reasons why I bought the watch is that it has a velcro strap and could fit around my skinny wrist. But thanks for bringing attention to it.
And people wonder why I have a complex.
