I got a third monitor for my computer and it's getting tedious having to turn all three on in the morning.
How do you balance them all on your knee along with your laptop?

'Having a separate sink for cleaning art supplies' is going on my 'Non-Negotiable' list for when buying a house.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I just realised that the job I was hired for has responsibilities that I need to take ownership of even though my pay grade doesn't strictly include those responsibilities.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I went down to the town to buy a couple of A4 sheets of paper a very specific shade of green. And I forgot to take the sample sheet with me.

And anyone who thinks I can guess the colour missed hearing my daughter say,
'Well if Mum says it is green it is probably orange'!

Ha! Possibly the very definition of a FWP.

The epitome of "First World Problem". Note to self: do not argue online with anti-vaxxers.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

In a workroom below our flat we have two bicycles and a 'Rolle' which is our winter cycle training.
To compensate for lack of scenery and zero altitude gain, Mr. Longbyt and I each have a Garmin which registers speed, heart-rate, calories used, distance, cadence etc. which information has always been transfered to the computers by USB cable. The device was afterwards 'kept handy'.for next time.

After searching the whole flat for the Garmin this afternoon, Mr.L finally realised that in spite of the details on the computer being up to date the Garmin had not been in the flat at all..It had been left downstairs. The latest update transfers the information automatically.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

The "view first unread" button is absolutely useless. Every time I check, there are one or two pages before the post it jumps on that I haven't read - from the same day.

Probably only because you're on a lower rung of Trumps information trail

Me: I'll just watch one more episode of Stranger Things on Netflix, and then I'll go out and buy something nice and healthy for dinner.

Narrator: But deep down she knew that there is no such thing as 'just one more episode'. Meanwhile, the Chinese takeaway menu peeks conspiratorially from the kitchen drawer.
