I drew attention to the portion above as a courtesy to a fellow Caro fan;in case you'd thought about retiring to lovely Cancun or Acapulco someday,living in Mexico is not for you
.If you're wealthy enough to have your own contractors on payroll,that's different.For the rest of us,waiting for workmen to arrive someday is an annoyance we've had to learn to adjust to.
You probably don't care at all about the NFL,but a player who fakes injury or 'heals very slowly'(hint,hint)will quickly fall out of favor with his teammates.In fact,he'll surely be either traded or,if no one will take him,released in the very next offseason.Guys will even go to the coach or GM and threaten to beat the assclown senseless in the locker room if the team won't get rid of him.
Though it's a different theme than what we've been discussing,I think that Caro's standards extend to other things.I'd be really,really,REALLY shocked if I heard that Rory was verbally abusive when the cameras were off;I just can't imagine that Caro would stand for that...with ANY guy.Nor do I believe that there was very much to her 'relationship' with Verdasco;despite having the same sponsor,she didn't even bother sitting in his box for his biggest matches on her days off.Something tells me that Caro wasn't interested in being another one of that guy's cheap,easy trophies
She has helped me fill the void of Elena's absence,but I might have to look hard whenever Caro actually DOES retire,too
