Why would an ER wear a watch? I mean, other than for SCUBA diving?

What really made me laugh and cross "second career" off my list was the advice to "go buy a real watch, like a Patek-Phillipe. Don't wear that old cheap black plastic Casio."
I leave my Casio on my nightstand, where its timer (usually) limits my afternoon snoozes to 30 minutes. Of course that's no help in the livingroom recliner or on the back lanai, but that's no problem...
