Were those two thanks for going to the loo, or for stepping away from your computer?
The latter. It's been a long, gruelling day!

Snippet from email from Little Rufus' playgroup: "...and grapes should be cut into quarters lengthways."

I'm now left wondering which way is lengthways on a grape. Not to mention how I'm going to get my kid to eat her favourite fruit in bits when... she likes 'em, well, more grape like.
All the effort that goes into making a grape and they want to cut it, lengthways?! It's not right..

Re: The First World Problem Thread

First world problem? I cannot stop putting things in my shopping cart, and the prices do not mean anything anymore.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

There is, as Belgianmum so well named it, a “Groundhog Day”-thread about Zurich’s being regarded as having a high quality of life.... and it is going on and on because so many of us have time and technology available to participate in or to read it!

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My iPhone didn't sync properly with my Fitbit and I had to manually move the fitbit time myself when the clocks went forward.

That's 30 seconds of my life I'll never see again.

My business trip was cancelled for a reason last week but my private CC has still been debited. Tomorrow, I will have to notify the admin at work about this unnecessary payment.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

We watched a late-night movie (the King Kong one) at a movie theater where you can buy a drink at the bar and bring it with you in the theater. There we were, whiskeys in hand, enjoying the movie. However, we wanted refills but the bar closed halfway through the movie!!! Talk about things that lower your quality of life!

They had to use public transport, like total losers! SAD!

(Also, the night supplement was a total rip off too.. and the taxi driver wanted more than an average Thai earns in a week!)

Hahahahah. Exactement!

Another question is, did they have a curry in a subpar resto afterwards?

Darn it. My FWP - uni is packed, on Sunday. And, there are lot of really noisy nasal voices around.

And no alcohol with it

Back to matching topics for this thread..

At the taxes right now (like probably around 2 million other Swiss..) It took me like 1 hour to figure out all the expenses I can deduct.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Our local Aperto recently closed for a couple of days and reopened with all Coop products.

On the one hand, it's great to have things like birch water and Sbrinz cheese. On the other hand, though, I'm really going to miss the random American and British products that would turn up for a couple of weeks every now and then.

I want my old Aperto back!

There is no caller ID on the phones provided in Reha. How can one still screen calls?

With this unseasonably warm weather I have to keep remembering to top up the water in my cigar humidor.
