Re: The First World Problem Thread

Swisscom sent me a big box and I have no idea why. I should probably take it indoor.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Coming back from my business trip to Munich by Europcar, the shortest route criteria guided me to the ferry across the lake Konstanz. Now, I need to explain to admin why I have paid extra €12, instead of taking alternative route.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I ordered some bamboo blinds for the patio and was delivered a atcky faux leather bed frame.

I asked when the blinds would arrive and when the bed would be removed. Waited over a week before reminding the firm, they said my blinds would be delivered, but dont worry about sending back the bed I could keep it.

It is unused, at least I think it is, but who knows! It could look fetching with leopard print silk sheets, anyone interested? This is the amount of effort I am prepared to go to, to get rid of them myself. Strewth I am knackered now.
