(Denver Channel)   The Tampa Woman's Club held an event where they poured 400 flutes of champagne. Inside each flute was a cubic zirconia, and one of the flutes contained a $5,000 diamond. Guess which one was swallowed?   (thedenverchannel.com) divider line 7

Really? REALLY? What the fark is wrong with people in this world -- you can't rinse your own fecal matter off before you take it to be tested?


Yeah, you'd think a person would understand that's not part of that person's normal job, and that you are a disgusting asshole for even asking them to do that, let alone just expecting it. 'Oh, you inspect diamonds, do you? Well why don't you just inspect the one inside this giant bag of my poop.'

I'm a little sad the store manager didn't tell her to eff off and quit bringing in poop bags. Asking people who aren't doctors, nurses, or janitors to deal with poop is just wrong. Good customer service is one thing, but NO ONE in any job should have to handle customer's poop if they didn't sign up to do that as part of the job. But I'm guessing she's one of those people who views people she pays to do anything as 'one of the poors' and expects it's okay to treat them like servants. I have dealt with some pretty stuck up assholes in my day but this still amazes me, though sadly there are some people I can think of even now who would in fact try something like this if the situation came up. Too good for their own poop.

Nidiot: I'm still trying to figure out what sort of club gives away a $5,000 diamond, and I'm sure the cubic zirconia weren't totally worthless either.

/wants a valuable gem stone for nothing


Its a charity event. People pay a lot of money for a mediocre meal in order to support some worthy cause. There is often a prize given away randomly as a type of incentive. The PR for diamonds focused heavily on women during the 1950s. So diamonds still have some cache' for that generation of wealthy white women. Younger wealthy white women would not be so impressed and would require a different type of door prize.

sonorangal: I can understand the lady being 80 years old not cleaning it. Why didn't the doctor clean it up?


I'm sorry, but if you can attend a party, slug back champagne like it's going out of fashion, and then haul ass to the jewelers to find out if you hit paydirt, you can probably close a drain plug down to a diamond-blocking crack, hit the plunger on some antibacterial soap, turn the tap on, tip the ziploc into the sink, and then stir the whole mess around with your arthritic claw until the sparkle and the poo have gone their separate ways.

Britney Spear's Speculum: Swallowed you say?

Diamonds are such bullshiat.  Artificial scarcity, an artificial cultural significance, and people getting killed for it.
