Bullsh*t.
Insurance scam from some NJ guido.
Who has the pic of the fat guy in the wife beater and the huge gold cross?

My first guess, too.

This guy I used to work with had a pair of 3,000$ earrings stolen from him at work. He kept them in his ratty backpack in the communal lunch room. It was messed up because his yearly salary was probably 3,000$. He was not a very smart person.

//But then again, neither was I, since I worked there too.

To each their own but I'm going to have to say that the idea of a diamond-studded gold cross worth $5k is the stupidest thing I've heard all month.
 
2012-07-09 11:46:54 PM  
He should have at least hidden it his Ed Hardy shirt while in the locker.

If this really happened, the thief did the guy a favor. Diamond studded necklaces like the one described are tacky as hell, and each one should be melted down at the nearest Cash-4-Gold.

He put his diamond-studded gold cross worth $5K in a gym locker. He should have done what every self respecting Guido does and wear his family jewels around his neck while he was working out.

I hate it when people put their shoes in a gym locker and don't put a lock on it. Pisses me off when I'm trying to find an open locker. I'd do something silly with their crap, but I'm afraid I'd get punched.

Pretty much. And at a gym too. Chances are he wasn't there just for the weights.

No but I have to be at the Fark in 26 minutes and I'd better leave my funny somewhere else b/c they're taking my Fark away from me. :~(

What if I put it in my $5000 diamond-studded gym locker?.

My mother in law lost a 5k ring recently and collected her insurance for it. Why anyone would want to wear something that expensive and then be foolish enough to lose it is beyond me. I detest gold and diamonds; they look gaudy and tacky to me. I like unusual jewelry, especially stuff made from wood, glass, rocks...

um...insurance doesn't tend to cover gym lockers...does it? And it certainly doesn't cover cash in your wallet...

I was always more about practicality than flash when spending big chunks of money.

// would have probably spent that 5k on a camera lens, or a full frame body (to date, I've only spent $600 on a single lens).

I'm sorry but no. 5k for a diamond necklace? Those must be some shiatty diamonds. My wife's wedding ring was a little north of 7k and it is no where near the size of that thing.

All retail diamonds are shiatty. Your wife's wedding ring was a jeweler's Hawaii vacation.

OK, OK, I confess, I did it. Normally I'll just take a towel or a T-shirt that's been lyin' around a few days untouched (they make good garage rags), but I've always wanted a great guido geegaw.

Word, I've been known to leave my watch in my locker at the gym. It's insured for more than that guidos necklace.

/after a rash of lockers were broken into I started bringing it with me on the treadmill

buzzcut73: If this really happened, the thief did the guy a favor. Diamond studded necklaces like the one described are tacky as hell, and each one should be melted down at the nearest Cash-4-Gold.


The article reminded me of a classmate of mine used to brag about his "ballin'" $3K gold chain he bought at a pawn shop. Most of us knew he didn't have a job and his family wasn't all that affluent, so when asked how he had managed to spend $3K on a gold chain to match his gold Gucci watch, we found his mom (not surprisingly) worked her ass off as a medical assistant just to afford this idiot his opulent tastes.

I don't understand what these people get out of this kind of dick-waving, even the dumbest of the bimbos I've met fail to be impressed by something as stupid as a gold chain, but then again I've never been to New Jersey.

Uh no. If it was that easy to make that much money selling diamonds jewelry stores would never go out of business

I can not explain "Guidos" in New Jersey, but in some ways I can understand why people barely getting by spend money on stuff they really can't afford. I grew up in a very modest household. Parents couldn't afford to buy me designer clothes and stuff. Whe I started working, rather than save my money I wasted it on these baubles/tokens trying not to "look poor". As I went to college, got a career, and actually can afford the stuff I find myself looking at bargains on the sale rack. So basically it is an inner insecurity about who you are and by buying the designer stuff you think you are sucessfully polishing a turd. In reality you are still broke with a bunch of over priced crap. In some ways, this type of shopping addiction can be just as destructive on a life as a drug addiction except the person is dressed a little nicer.

"American Express Publishing has defined four stages of luxury consumption by those that can afford the best. A kind of Maslow hierarchy: acquisitive, inquisitive, authoritative and meditative.

Acquisitive meaning the most boastful, least informed stage - all about braggadocio, the bigger more visible the brand, the label the better the boast.

Inquisitive a step up, meaning the beginning glimmers of serious interest in why great things or experiences cost what they cost, the wanting to know, the slavish reliance on experts.

Authoritative meaning the acquiring of more than a little knowledge and sophistication, no concern about bragging rights and insistence on influencing "the expert's" choices or guidance, coming into one's own and feeling comfortable in "the swim" of appreciation of luxury products or services.

Meditative meaning, having no or very little interest in stuff for stuff's sake, "luxury" being more about experiences that validate ones achievement and bring happiness to one and one's family.

Russia and Mainland China (which will account by 2015 for as much as 25 percent of the world's consumption of luxury products and services, and by 2025 some say as much as 50 percent) are emerging from the "acquisitive" phase.

The United States (some 20 percent), Japan (some 40 percent) and Europe (some 30 percent) are all well into or moving into the "meditative" phase."

It's true; once I started being able to afford it, I calmed right the fark down and actually spent less.
