You might use it with a bluff check and and/or and intimidate check, "I own the Non-Fungible Trident! Do you know what I could do with that?", as long as the other party was ignorant of the curse. And didn't ask to see your trident. Maybe you could carry a reasonable facsimile, for intimidation purposes.

Of course if they are familiar with the curse, the are racked with laughter for 1d6  turns.  Not enough to give a disadvantage on their attacks, but enough to be irritating,

Are you allowed to visit it in the vault?

No, of course not.  That would make it a fungible trident.

It sure would. I would want to grab it and wish that I could hold it.

5e attunement means that you have to keep in contact with it for an hour.  The masters of the vault will stop that.  Of course there are masters of the vault, magical dudebros need something to do.

The wish won't override?

I want The Abacus of Mercinades the Merchant Master. I've heard that no matter how bad your situation, you can always count on it.

The wishes don't happen until you get attuned to it.

Reminds me of the Tates Compass

This legendary traveler's aid is an apparently ordinary magnetic compass of good quality that has the remarkable feature of being able to point in ANY direction EXCEPT due north or the way the traveler should go.  Despite this inconvenience, those who hold the Compass from Tates will believe it over any and all contradictory directional information.  Thus the infamous company slogan.  He Who Has A Tates Is Lost.

I wish I didn't have to attune to it, ever.

 

 

(I realized a second after I clicked 'post that this would probably make the Trident disappear.)

Since you can't use the wish until you attune to it and it will be taken from you before you attune to it, the wish doesn't happen.  But if it did, yeah, it would most likely cease to exist.

You would need an independent wish, then you could use the trident.

Probably not.  They have nerfed the wish spell quite a lot in 5e.  It's no longer the universe changing thing it used to be.  It has some specified uses and a general "other" use, but the other is rather tightly tied to what the DM wants to do to mess with you.

Similarly, wishing for a legendary magic item or artifact might instantly transport you to the presence of the item's current owner

As if it didn't already do that.

Yeah, Wish has always been a bit of a 2 edge sword.  Actually 3 edges, and one is pointed back at the caster.

Not really; it is an overpowered item, of course people want it. Unlimited wishes?

I'm sure some creative soul can come up with good uses for the paper image.

Even Mr. Whipple's use would be good.  Once anyway.

It’s a tabletop RPG—players are notorious for trying to rules-lawyer their way out of everything.

And WotC, bless their little hearts, has been trying to say "rule 0 exists" for several versions of the game.  Granted they went overboard with detailed rules for 3.x, but 5e is fairly rules light and depends a lot more on "Rulings, not Rules".  I'm not saying it OSR, but there has been an attempt to reduce the option of being a rules lawyer.  The fact that 5e eliminated prestige classes so really over the top "builds" aren't really an option is a good thing. I don't recall is rule 0 was a printed thing in 4e, I've tried to forget as much as possible about it.
