I used to but they stopped selling anything bigger than size 12s

Why did they stop selling them? It's hard enough finding cool kicks in size 15 and now I gotta buy my socks on Amazon like a maroon.

Also I got my father-in-law this thing a few weeks ago from Costco:

24 different beers for every day in December until Christmas. Anyway long story short but I went back yesterday and was going to buy myself one but they were completely gone! There had to be 30 of them there when I got the one a few weeks ago.

This thing costs like $133 here in Nova Scotia, what is it at Costco?

So in 'Straya there's like two costcos or something. One is within... manageable driving distance.
I went there once with someone else who had a membership card. It was full of middle aged obese women buying unhealthily large jars of Nutella and arguing with the poor employees about contrived circumstances.

Buy Meat and freeze it mang
I get those nice rear end prime nystrips, $80 for 4. It's a nice once a month treat.
Two prime strips at a nice restaurant with sides would cost ya over $100.
The seafood is also good. Giant rear end Tiger shrimp and Lobster tails.
Plus good reasonably priced wine.
You can get some good luxury foods for less then a restaurant and make a nice dinner for bae.

watches are perfectly acceptable accessories for men and if you look down on and get angry over people who wear wrist watches you have some kinda personal problem imo.

I make like 80k a year I can afford a watch if I want one. I don't I spend it on more awesome poo poo instead.

People already fear and respect me I don't need a bracelet to accomplish that. My T levels are optimal.

It usually just means they are gross nerds who hate normies, which is a personal problem. They are also much morw likely to wear jumpsuits and use soylent

I'd get much more use out of both of those things I suppose as I don't need some stupid bracelet to command respect. Although I am averse to paying for porn.

My roommate works at Costco but we do most of the shopping at Aldi since they have better prices even factoring in the bulk discount, and also have high quality European imports that I would buy even if they weren't so cheap.

Seriously I'm jut poking fun at spending a few thousand bucks on a "status symbol to earn respect". I know at least one of these dudes makes fun of guns as "dick enlargers" so its a little hypocritical as a gun at least can be used for fun or to kill people.

Costco loving owns yo. Bought some fancy expensive winter hiking clothes at MEC and like a day later go in to Costco for a giant box of frozen perogies and they got almost the exact same shirt for 1/4 the price. Gonna return the expensive stuff.

Also as far as watches go, the funny thing about wage earners wearing super expensive watches is if they had to save up or wait for it to be on sale or do a group buy or basically make any kind of sacrifice to buy their fancy rear end watch then the only people who are at all impressed by them owning said watch are people who are probably super loving boring because they prioritize appearing wealthy above doing things. Dudes that look like hobos because they spend all their money doing stuff are more interesting.

Your authority is not recognized in Fort Kickass.


The only person I know with an expensive watch is my rich uncle, and my aunt bought it for him as a gift with his own money since she doesn't have a job.

You literally need to have enough money that you don't care if family members just drop thousands of your own money on jewelry.
