...for a YOUNG man to own one is a waste?

How about just for a man to own one is a waste.

At least Spitzer got some action for his few thou.

And women wonder why men patronize “escort” services.

Look at what’s out there!

“Prada belt valued at $1,000”

not that it’s WORTH a grand, it’s just valued at a grand...

If you go to ebay...search Rolex under jewelry and watches then order them highest price first...I found a platinum with diamonds Rolex starting at 69K and the seller says the retail price was $103,000. What you are paying for is the perceived jewelry value and the brand name status of Rolex. A cheap Timex quartz watch probably keeps more accurate time.

...hey, you COULD have at least MENTIONED that I shipped your pants back to you.

Talk about heartless jerks.

And a fat lot of good it did me.

They came two weeks later, the day my son was born. When I took them to the hospital, y'know, to wave them in my wife's face, she totally flipped out again! It was like the whole thing happened twice!

Now, here is a watch just a few bucks shy of 700K

And this guy loses a cheap old Rolex. This guy is dumber than dumb. "Go get undressed, honey, while I mix the drinks". ROFLMAO

This dumbass got what he wanted (in a way), but he didn’t get kissed!

Sounds like he didn't even get a reacharound...

I'd have thought that they would be after his delegate credentials. Maybe if it happened on a Monday or Tuesday. Code Pink must have one attractive operative in their group for such things.

Why did this male lawyer have earrings on him at the Convention?

Where was his wife?

...and when is his divorce being announced?

Cheers!

While that’s a lot of valuables lost (earring? on a Republican man?) if it were me, I’d have taken my lumps, figure I got rolled and never have filed a police report. My reputation would be worth more than that, and those items can be replaced, my reputation can’t.

admit that I was a target of a crime. I was drugged and had about $50,000 of personal items stolen

It's called an entertainment tax.

Apparently he’s single with a cash flow. But that’s some expensive stuff to be traveling around with.

OK, why would someone take even $50,000 to the convention. I can’t imagine taking that much with me on a trip anywhere.

Probably a designer watch like Patek Phillipe. We are talking watches that are essentially high end jewelry that just happens to be a watch.

Did he buy the girl the stuff prior to getting to the hotel room? Probably thought he should get some payback after laying out that much dough.
